Three-time Oscar nominee, Amy Adams, has been cast in the role of journalist, Lois Lane in the new ‘Superman.’

Film director Zack Snyder himself phoned Adams from Paris where he’s promoting ‘Sucker Punch’ to tell her the news, reports the LA Times’ Hero Complex Blog. According to him, he wanted to find the perfect Lois Lane, whose character dates back to the 1930s and who can hold her own against any man.

“We are excited to announce the casting of Amy Adams, one of the most versatile and respected actresses in films today,” said Snyder, according to Monsters and Critics.

“There was a big, giant search for Lois,” Snyder explained to the Hero Complex Blog. “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.”

He didn’t give any details about the new ‘Superman’, but did want the movie to have a contemporary spin to it. “It goes back to what I’ve said about Superman and making him really understandable for today. What’s important to us is making him 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 as him [in tone and substance],” Snyder added according to the Hero Complex Blog.

British actor, 27-year-old Henry Cavill, has already been chosen to play Superman. Kevin Costner and Diane Lane were also cast as Superman’s parents; Jonathan and Martha Kent in recent months.

36-year-old Adams will follow in other actresses’ footsteps who already incarnated the role of Lois Lane, such as Margot Kidder, Teri Hatcher, Erica Durance and Kate Bosworth, states the Washington Post. The original muse for Lois Lane, Joanne Siegel died in February at the age of 93, who married Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel.

The film is expected to come out in late 2012, reports the New York Post.
