Amy Adams on coming back as Lois Lane
Asked about Cavill reprising his Superman role, Adams told Variety: “Isn’t it exciting?” The actor, who played firebrand journalist and love interest Lois Lane to Cavill’s protagonist in the 2013 movie Man of Steel, was speaking at the Wednesday premiere of her latest film Disenchanted. “I’m thrilled for (Cavill). He’s such a wonderful Superman so I’m very excited for him,” she added.
The six-time Oscar nominee also weighed in on her return as Lois. “They haven’t spoken to me about it. If it’s me, great. If it’s somebody else, the role of Lois has been filled by so many wonderful actresses in the past so I’ll support whatever direction they go,” Adams noted.
She previously reprised the role of Lois in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), Justice League (2017), and Zack Snyder’s Justice League (2021).
