Director Zack Snyder has finally decided who will play Superman’s love interest, Lois Lane. Amy Adams received a phone call from Snyder on Sunday from Paris, France. Snyder has been hired by Warner Bros to direct the next installment of the Superman series slated for a December 2012 release.

Adam’s will no doubt be thrilled with Snyder’s decision, as Lois Lane is a hot role that could really boost a career in Hollywood. The 36 year old actress made her first screen appearance in the black comedy, Drop Dead Gorgeous (1999). Following this she had a string of B movie roles and TV guest appearances, but the role that really kick started her career was a supporting role in the independent production of Junebug (2005). She recently won a third Oscar nomination for her role in The Fighter (2010), opposite Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale. 

Snyder said, “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.” Snyder wouldn’t reveal any details of the films plot or the significance of Adams’s role in the story, but he did say, “It goes back to what I 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.”

It was also revealed recently that Kevin Costner and Diane Lane would play the roles of Superman’s adoptive parents.
