Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane? Chemistry?


amy adams golden globes 2011Amy Adams and Henry Cavill will star in the new version of the Superman movie.  I have to say that Amy Adams as Lois Lane leaves me cold.

Director Zack Snyder announced on Sunday that Amy Adams has been cast to play Lois Lane opposite British actor Henry Cavill in the modern version of the Superman movie.

Adams, who is a three-time Oscar nominee, will star opposite Henry Cavill, who plays the Man of Steel.

Director Zack Snyder made a statement to the media about the latest casting decision:

“There was a big, giant search for Lois. For us it was a big thing and obviously a really important role. We did a lot of auditioning but we had this meeting with Amy Adams and after that I just felt she was perfect for it.

It goes back to what I’ve said about Superman and making him really understandable for today. What’s important to us is making him relevant and real and making him empathetic to today’s audience so that we understand the decisions he makes.  That applies to Lois as well. She has to be in the same universe as him [in tone and substance].”

What do you think of Amy Adams as Lois Lane?  I love this actress but I’m a little puzzled.  What are your thoughts?
