The wait is over for Superman fans--- after releasing who will bare the famous S -- Warner Brothers finally revealed who will carry the esteemed reporter’s notebook.
Amy Adams will play Lois Lane in Superman: Man of Steel. Beating out actresses such as Kristin Stewart, Rachel McAdams, and Jessica Biel. Director Zack Snyder, of 300 fame, couldn't be more pleased with the decision.
“Synder describes the 3 time Oscar nominee as one of the most versatile and respected actresses in films today.”

An entertainment reporter for The Baltimore Sun is also enthusiastic about the casting. Citing Adams’ movies as sheer examples of her ability to rock the house as Lois Lane.
“Finding the fresh response in obvious situations has become a specialty for Amy Adams, so if anyone can bring new blood to Lois Lane for a Superman movie, it's Adams. … Let's hope Snyder's Lois Lane gives Adams room to soar up, up and away.”
Sean O’Neal of The Onion’s AV Club is of the same mind. Woefully titling his latest article--
Amy Adams to play Lois Lane in Superman film that is, yep, still being directed by Zack Snyder.
“Zack Snyder’s Xbox erotica Sucker Punch may have just become the director's third major letdown in a row, and renewed those growing worries that he’ll bring the Superman franchise down into the charcoal sweat-splattered gutter with him.”
Yet O’Neal is happy about one thing: Adams.
“Adams has got plenty of moxie, chutzpah* what-have-you, enough to stand up to Superman and, hopefully, Zack Snyder’s bulldozing style.”
Over on MTV’s Splash Page -- another fan concern.... Is Adams too old to play Clark Kent’s love?

“...the nine-year age difference -- Adams is 36, Cavill is 28 -- has struck a certain portion of fandom as, well... a little odd. This outburst of animosity over the age difference could be read as simply another symptom of cultural bias against women dating younger men.”
But Dixon Gaines of MOVIELINE thinks the age of the actress is quote -- a “smart” choice.
“At 36 years old, she’s got enough seasoning to realistically play a world-class reporter, and has played dames with moxie before perfectly.”
“The less said about Kate Bosworth’s barely pubescent Pulitzer prize-winning Lois, the better.”
A podcaster on YouTube feels it’s OK that Adams looks older. Using comic book evidence to prove his point.

“Superman having a different physiology would not age at the same rate that human beings would.”
“The idea that Lois would essentially age more rapidly is actually not that far fetched. Why this would be a problem on the big screen visually, taking that into account,I don’t see the problem.”
But don’t take all these people’s word for it... you can be your own Lois Lane judge. The movie is set to be released in 2012.
