Adams talks Man of Steel

September 15th, 2012 by bash Comments

Amy Adams has been talking of her role as Lois Lane in next year’s Man of Steel.

The actress, who will play Lois Lane in the Superman reboot, tolf Yahoo! Movies she loved working on the iconic franchise.

“It was fun. It was intimidating because it was played before by Margot Kidder, whom I love. One of my favorite movies growing up was Superman and Superman 2. I was kind of a nerd; I loved them so much. It was important to create a character that was new because I thought she was perfect. It’s hard to step into a role where you thought someone had already achieved what could be achieved. But coming from theater, you’re always stepping into a role that’s been done before, so you’re always excited about it.”

Meanwhile, in an interview with USA Today, the red haired beauty said she never had any intention of recreating someone else’s character.

“This was a new idea, down to the hair color,” she said. “I knew people would want to talk about my hair color. It was going to be a thing. (Director) Zack (Snyder) told me he didn’t hire me to play someone else. He hired me to play Lois Lane. It’s a whole reimagining.”

Discussing what the new movie would bring to audiences, she continued: “It’s a totally different realization of the Superman lore, so I felt free in that way because I wasn’t trying to emulate any sort of banter that had been established by Christopher Reeve and Kidder. I was given a lot of permission to create a new character.”

Adams also talked about her love of original Lois Lane actress Margot Kidder.

“I grew up really loving(her). I wasn’t trying to be her but I hope I do enough of a good job to have the same effect on young girls as Lois Lane had on me,” she said.

As for having watched any footage, the actress said she hadn’t seen any yet.

“I haven’t seen it. I haven’t seen any footage. It’s intense. Henry worked his tail off as Superman. It’s different for me. A lot of running. I hold a laser taser of some sort,” she added.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
