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.

    A black girl famous for her horrible acting and destruction of the Catwoman role and a little British girl who looks like the love child of Justin Bieber and Richard Dawkins? ew.

    Didn't they just do a reboot of Superman? Anyone else tired of remakes?

    They didn't do a reboot per se. They did a requel. They had it in the same continuity as the first two Superman movies with Christopher Reeve, while ignoring Superman III and IV: The Quest for Peace, and probably Supergirl.

    This new movie will have an entirely new continuity.

    This sweetie would make a good any thing. She may be more powerful than that Kryptonite and take away Superman's powers. She will make him wilt away.

    I'd vote for Keira Knightley if she can get rid of the British accent for the movie. She's fiesty and knows how to do comedy without overdoing it.

    I think Rachel McAdams would be a much better fit. She is more outgoing and would be more passionate and feisty as the character of the old Lois Lane, Margot Kidder.

    I won't watch any Superman movies since they took out "Truth, Justice and the AMERICAN WAY" out of the first one. I will not be ashamed of "the American way" thank you.

    Amy Adams will make a good anything. Her superb talent ensures certain success. Just watch her strut her stuff in "Miss Pettigrew lives for a day." An Academy Award performance overlooked. Here's hoping she sticks to the niche she carved for herself. Dare I say, we have the Doris Day--of our day!

    I think Rachel Weiss wouldn't work as Lois for the same reason (as someone suggested). Good grief, she's 41 !!!

    So...she doesn't look it!!! Actors and actresses play younger characters than themselves all the time.

    If anything Clark Kent was OLDER than Lois Lane. Sorry.
