Amy Adams On Playing Lois Lane In "Man Of Steel"

Amy Adams, co-star of the upcoming "Man Of Steel", discusses her role as Lois Lane and why she felt intimidated

Amy Adams, who portays Lois Lane in the upcoming Superman reboot, "Man Of Steel", was recently interviewed by Yahoo while attending the Toronto Film Festival.

When asked about Lois Lane she said "...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.

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."
