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 Crowe. Man 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.
