Hi everybody! Back in January I announced that we was going to merge Enchanting Amy with Amy Adams Fan. Well, due to my recent computer issues it was being postponed, but today I finally restarted the project. Lots of magazine scans was added to our gallery (some we already have but was replaced with better quality ones), and more will come.
June issue of Empire Magazine has 12 pages plus two different covers dedicated to Man of Steel. My friend Celyn kindly scanned it to us, so you can now find it in the gallery:
Our scans are untagged, so if reposting, be nice and give us a link back. ;)
The new issue of Entertainment Weekly bring us a ‘Man of Steel’ special. It has six pages and two new Amy Adams pictures as Lois Lane. Thanks to my friend Ali we have now scans up in the gallery. Check below the article:
The makers of Man of Steel had to start thinking like a cadre of supervillains: how do you get under Superman’s invincible skin and really make him hurt?
This week’s cover story reveals how the new film (out June 14) attempts to humanize the superhuman by finding new flaws and vulnerabilities. The most common one, however, was off the table: “I’ll be honest with you, there’s no Kryptonite in the movie,” says director Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen) Those glowing green space rocks – Superman’s only crippling weakness – have turned up so often as a plot point in movies, the only fresh option was not to use it. Anyway, if you want to make an audience relate to a character, a galactic allergy isn’t the way to do it.
Henry Cavill (Immortals), the latest star to wear the red cape, instead plays a Superman who isn’t fully comfortable with that god-like title. This film reveals that even on Krypton, young Kal-El was a special child, whose birth was cause for alarm on his home planet. (More on that in the magazine) And once on Earth, his adoptive parents, Ma and Pa Kent (Kevin Costner and Diane Lane), urge him not to use his immense strength – even in dire emergencies — warning that not every human would be as accepting of him as they are. So Clark Kent grows up feeling isolated, longing for a connection to others, and constantly hiding who he is. As a result, Man of Steel presents the frustrated Superman, the angry Superman, the lost Superman. “Although he is not susceptible to the frailties of mankind, he is definitely susceptible to the emotional frailties,” Cavill says.
That’s just the set-up. Once the Kryptonian villain General Zod (Boardwalk Empire’s Michael Shannon) arrives to threaten the Earth, eventually the passionate Superman steps forward, too. It helps that he has a reason to care about the home he’s defending, and we can all thank Amy Adams’ Lois Lane for that. “I think she’s very transient. She’s ready to pick up and go at a moment’s notice,” Adams says of the hard-bitten journalist. “I think that definitely could be part of what she sees in Superman — not really laying down roots, not developing trust.”
Based on footage EW has seen, the film (which was directed by Zack Snyder and shepherded by Christopher Nolan) has plenty of building-smashing, train-slinging, heat-vision-blasting battles to cut through the emotional heaviness. “You want to give the audience great spectacle. You want them to go to the movie, be eating their popcorn and be like, ‘Wow!’” says Man of Steel producer Charles Roven, who also worked on The Dark Knight trilogy. “But it’s just not good enough to give them the ‘Wow.’ You want them to be emotionally engaged. Because if you just have the ‘wow,’ ultimately you get bludgeoned by that and you stop caring.”
Those who’ve long felt the super-confident, super-controlled Superman has gotten super dull may be glad to see him finally challenged in ways that go beyond bullets bouncing off of his chest.
The new issue of Cinema magazine (via The ComicBookMovie) includes this new photo featuring the primary cast members (out of the character) of director Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel. The magazine also has a profile of the actors with a beautiful new picture of Amy, promotional for the movie as well. You can buy your own copy of the magazine here.
The current issue of Total Film has a Man of Steel special which include a fresh look at Amy Adams as Lois Lane and Henry Cavill as Superman himself. You can see the full article and pictures in our gallery, courtesy of MrCavill.com.
Check below the interview Amy did to the magazine:
How would you pitch Superman and Lois’ relationship in this film?
I would say that they’re at odds and then they’re… friends, you know?
How was your first meeting with Zach Snyder?
I could tell he was going to be very collaborative and really focused – not only on the visuals but on the character’s journey. I wanted to play Lois so badly, so I tried not to look too eager!
What did you most want to convey with your version of Lois?
I wanted her to be a woman other women could relate to. And not be sort of a pest. Lois can be kind of omnipresent, turning up at very inconvenient times – which she does! – but you understand her reasons.
You’ve been in the running before…
When J.J.Abrams and Brett Ratner were planning a version, I actually did a screen test with Matt Bomer. And then when Superman Returns came round I read again. So this was my third go to it.
You did to get play a baddie in TV’s Smallville though…
I played a girl who was quite heavy then lost weight quickly… I remember speeding a lot of time in prosthetics!
Did you go straight from The Master to Man of Steel?
It was about three days, I think. By the time (The Master) was done, I was kind of in a dark place, but Zach has this amazing infectious energy you get caught up with. he’s all “Come on, let’s get the game going!”, like a football match.
How physically demanding was it?
My God, I got off lucky. Henry has tales to tell! I chose correct in playing a mortal rather than a superhero. I feel on my hip and created quite a bruise, but that was it.
Was there intensive greenscreen work?
The most intense work was always with another actor, but I had scenes where I had to see things that weren’t there. It’s the first time I’ve had to run through invisible doors before they close.
What did you get up to between takes?
On, no good. I’m always up to no good. I took naps, I knitted. Meryl (Streep) taught me how, I don’t know how many finished products I have, but I’ve started plenty.
What superpower would you like to have?
Oh, I’d wanna know what people are thinking. I’m not a fan of flying, which I guess is strange for a film like this…
The latest issue of People magazine features tons of Oscar nominees in their Academy Awards portfolio – Amy Adams included! She looks stunning as she poses on a ladder trying to cut out a… giraffe (?) from a big bush. Truly a funny but gorgeous picture. She talks about the character that got her the Oscar-nom, Peggy Dodd, in The Master and what made her play the the part. She also reveals the moment she realized she wanted to become an actor: when she saw Olivia Newton-John kiss John Travolta in Grease!
