“You don’t have to be a man to be powerful,” smiles Amy Adams. She’s talking about the appeal of Lois Lane, a role she’s raring for in Zach Snider’s Superman: Man of Steel. Yet for a third Oscar nom this year for her unyielding performance as gutsy barmaid Charlene in The Fighter and with On The Road and The Muppets following close behind, the 36-years-old Adams seems to embody this statement. “I’m the luckiest girl in the world,” she smiles. “I’ve gotten to be a princess, I’ve gotten to work with The Muppets. I didn’t even think I’d ever have a national commercial, let alone three Oscar nominations”. And now Lane.
“What I love about Lois Lane is that she’s been very consistently strong, successful, independent. I’m very attracted to that. She was able to be smart and be feminine and I think that’s something I know I’m going to teach my daughter. You can be a powerful woman.” Sounds like some great casting to us.
