Clark Kent/Kal-El is a young twenty-something journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond his imagination. Transported years ago to Earth from Krypton, a highly advanced, distant planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question ‘Why am I here?’ Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha and Jonathan Kent, Clark discovers having extraordinary abilities means making difficult decisions. When the world is in dire need of stability, an even greater threat emerges. Clark must become a Man of Steel, to protect the people he loves and shine as the world’s beacon of hope – Superman.
Amy Adams is portraying the iconic character Lois Lane.
Zach Snyder, on casting Amy
“Amy is really just an amazing talent. I think she grounds the part in a really amazing way, for me anyway. She’s beautiful and she’s smart. What we’re trying to do with the project, she just really sort of embodies everything we’re going for.”
Henry Cavill on Amy being cast as Lois
“She’s a brilliant, wonderful actress! She’s incredible. She’s an extraordinarily accomplished young lady — and gorgeous and full of energy and spirit. She’s so different from part to part, it’s going to be really interesting to see what she does with Lois.”
Amy on getting the part
“I’m like the luckiest girl in the world. I’ve gotten to be a princess, I’ve gotten to work with the Muppets. A lot of my childhood dreams about who I wanted to be when I was a grown-up, I at least get to play them in movies. And Lois Lane is one of them. So I’m just excited. I hope I bring something that people enjoy.”
Perry White: Two weeks leave without pay, as penance!
Lois Lane: Fine.
Perry White: Make that three weeks, since you’re so eager to accept that!
Lois Lane: What does the “S” stand for?
Superman: It’s not an “S”. On my planet, it’s a symbol, meaning hope.
Lois Lane: Well, here it’s an “S”.
• The film was filmed in Vancouver, Canada.
“The Man of Steel falls for Daily Planet reporter Lois Lane (a tough, terrific Amy Adams). You don’t hire four-time Oscar nominee Adams to play Lois if you want a compliant bimbo who can’t see the superman behind Clark’s glasses. Even when Snyder pulls out every computer-generated trick in a climax that won’t quit while it’s ahead, Cavill and Adams give the movie a beating heart.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
“This is a smart, active, modern Lois, one who does need to be rescued on occasion but is always keen to be in the thick of things. Adams and Cavill develop a spirited rapport that’s enjoyable to watch in admittedly short spurts.” – Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter
“The appealing Adams, with the script’s support, may be the first actress who plays Lois Lane not as a 1930’s-style “girl reporter” but instead as an actual journalist who happens to be a woman.” – Alonso Duralde, The Wrap
