LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Amy Adams is still reeling about landing the coveted role of Lois Lane in the upcoming “Superman” film.
“I’m really excited!” Amy told Access Hollywood on Tuesday at CinemaCon 2011 in Las Vegas, where she was promoting her new film, “The Muppets,” with Jason Segel. “It’s amazing.”
Will Amy – who usually sports lovely red locks – dye her coif darker for the iconic brunette role alongside “The Tudors” actor Henry Cavill in director Zack Snyder’s superhero reboot?
“I don’t know yet,” Amy said. “We’ll see, we will see.”
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Zack — whose “Sucker Punch” is currently in theaters — released a statement about casting Amy in the role.
“Second only to Superman himself, the question of who will play Lois Lane is arguably what fans have been most curious about,” Zack said in a statement released to Access on Sunday. “So we are excited to announce the casting of Amy Adams, one of the most versatile and respected actresses in films today. Amy has the talent to capture all of the qualities we love about Lois: smart, tough, funny, warm, ambitious and, of course, beautiful.”
The 36-year-old Oscar nominee also joins veteran actors Diane Lane and Kevin Costner as Martha and Jonathan Kent, respectively.
The film, tentatively titled, “Superman: Man of Steel,” is slated for theatrical release in December 2012.
