Scientists have not yet found a way to clone Anne Hathaway so that she can play every under 40 female role in every single movie being produced, and that’s good news for Amy Adams. Because if a Dolly Hathaway clone existed, it would get the role of Lois Lane instead of Amy. Amy found out today that she’ll be Superman’s boo in the remake that we don’t need but Hollywood is going to give us anyway because they know if they release it in 3D or IMAX we’ll come. I hate us.
“Second only to Superman himself, the question of who will play Lois Lane is arguably what fans have been most curious about. So we are excited to announce the casting of Amy Adams, one of the most versatile and respected actresses in films today. Amy has the talent to capture all of the qualities we love about Lois: smart, tough, funny, warm, ambitious and, of course, beautiful.”
This latest butchery of Christopher Reeve’s legacy will also star Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Superman’s parents.
Amy Adams earned glamour points in my book when beat a ho good on the front porch in The Fighter, but she’s still no Margot Kidder or Teri Snatchers. But luckily for Amy, she can’t do any worse the last live-action Lois Lane: Kate Bosworth. I spent most of the movie hoping that Superman would blow her wig (or whatever that dead cat tail shit on her head was) away. So keep the ginge, Amy, and you can’t go wrong!
