After an enormous, extensive search, director Zack Snyder has picked Amy Adams to play Lois Lane in his upcoming "Superman: Man of Steel" reboot.
The "Enchanted" actress has received three Academy Award nominations for supporting actress roles in "Junebug," "Doubt" and last year's "The Fighter." Snyder is hoping to ride her wave of success by placing her alongside Henry Cavill as Superman's leading lady.
Snyder told The Los Angeles Times, "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."
The director has not revealed what direction he's planning to go with his characters in "Man of Steel," but did note, "What’s important to us is making [Superman] 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."
"Superman: Man of Steel" is currently scheduled to be released in December 2012.
