New Black-and-White Image of Amy Adams as Lois Lane in MAN OF STEEL

     January 30, 2013


In Man of Steel, Amy Adams will be the third Lois Lane to hit the big screen following Margot Kidder and Kate Bosworth.  Considering that Adams is a four-time Oscar nominee, she was a bit of great casting.  However, Lois Lane has rarely evolved past the sharp-witted reporter (who can’t figure out that her co-worker is a superhero)/damsel-in-distress in Superman’s world, so I’m curious to see screenwriter David Goyer and director Zack Snyder‘s take on the character.  Their emphasis on a “real-world” adaptation should extend past beyond making Superman sad.

Hit the jump to check out the image.  The film also stars Henry Cavill, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon, Laurence Fishburne, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, Christopher Meloni, and Russell CroweMan of Steel opens in 3D on June 14th.



Here’s the official synopsis for Man of Steel:

In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Cavill) is a young twentysomething journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question – Why am I here? Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Costner), Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as “Superman,” not only to shine as the world’s last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.

    If he flies an American flag or salutes the president, the whole thing’s dead in the water.

      What? Why? Superman originally fought for “truth, justice and the American way.” Why is that so wrong?

  • amg907

    Amy Adams was a terrible choice for Lois Lane IMO

    Always felt that Michelle Monaghan should’ve had it.

    Here’s hoping. .

    • Alan B

      Here’s hoping, what? They will reshoot all Lois Lane’s scenes with Monaghan?

      • amg907

        That she doesn’t butcher the role and actually deliver a solid Lois Lane.

        Go back to watching sponge bob and drinking from your juice box.

        K pumpkin?

    • REALLY?

      Amy Adams is rarely a bad choice for ANY role. I believe her resume speaks for itself.

      • Strong Enough

        wow. you’re an idiot lmao

  • Photoshopped

    the photo is so weird and like its heavily Photoshopped

    • photofinished

      Everything we’ve seen from this inevitable super-turkey of a movie looks photoshopped. Oh well, there’s always Batman 2017.

    “Their emphasis on a “real-world” adaptation should extend past beyond making Superman sad.”

    Wow, this is just a character picture: it’s stunning (and tiresome) that Goldberg manages to sneak in some jibe about the film being ‘gritty’ or ‘real’ when it JUST a medium close up revealing Lois Lane rocking a black vest and a white shirt. This is sad …

  • Junierizzle

    Can people stop confusing “dark and gritty” with simply taking a serious approach at storytelling?

    The Dark Knight was good story telling not dark and gritty.

  • Junierizzle

    Not everything has to be non-stop quips like The Avengers to be considered fun and exciting.

    Still don’t get why everyone, Goldberg included, feels that comic book characters have to adhere to how they are generally viewed by society. Superman = boy scout. Batman = single-minded vengeance. When you really think about it, humans created these characters, for any number of reasons, and it’s not absurd at all for a filmmaker to want to get to the heart of that character. Face it, Superman on the page in the early years is boring by today’s standards, but in the 40s he was perfect. People need to let go of that preconceived notion of him. That is not how we would actually see Superman, or anyone with seemingly godlike powers/abilities. We’d be very skeptical, fearful, and paranoid about what he could do. It’s only natural, and entirely relevant, for us to want to understand that side of a hero. He’s a hero because we made him one, not necessarily because he does good things. People do good things everyday and they aren’t heroes until someone hoists them up on the pedestal for everyone to take notice of. Further exploring the psyche of someone like Superman is way more entertaining and engaging than watching him just duke it out with someone for two hours. We’ve seen that; comics, cartoons, etc.

    • Weeks

      Exactly. I mean, come on, the whole one-dimensional, invincible Superman story ran its course long ago. The fact that he’s the most godlike superhero of all means they have to take a different tack in telling his story, and the only way to do that is to give him a soul. It appears that’s what Snyder and Goyer are doing with this project.

      It’s amazing how reactionary people can be. Professional movie critics and comic book fanboys must be the most tedious group of overgrown babies around.

  • Grayden

    Not sure if Goldberg knows the difference between sad and reserved. At this point I’m actually surprised he didn’t say “emo”. Maybe we can start a pool to raise money for a thesaurus.

  • Billy Jack

    People, what do you expect? This is Matt Goldberg after all. Dickface of dickfaces. The only moron who wants more Adam West Batman in today\’s CBMs. The only imbecile who gets annoyed at filmmakers for treating comic book characters like real people. Once again, Matt Goldberg proves that he is a fucking idiot.

  • Brett Rankin

    “Their emphasis on a ‘real-world’ adaptation should extend past beyond making Superman sad.”


    Goldberg has his C review ready and waiting. Anyway, Adams is a great actress and I hope Man of Steel rocks.
