As Lois Lane, Academy Award winner Amy Adams was just as instrumental in shaping Henry Cavill’s Clark Kent as Ben Affleck was in defining the role of Cavill’s Superman. With Cavill back in the suit, fans have been wondering if Adams will be tapped to reprise her role, and in a new interview, Adams gives a resounding…maybe? Speak with VarietyAdams expressed enthusiasm and support for Cavill’s return in Superman, but admitted that no Warner Bros. Discovery has reached out to her with any kind of feedback on the role of Lois one way or another.
Her role could differ significantly depending on the continuity James Gunn and Peter Safran decide to embrace in the future. In Zack Snyder’s Justice League, it’s been made pretty clear that Lois is pregnant. Considering how many years it has been since the events of Justice Leaguewhich could quite easily set up a younger, more “Super Sons”-friendly version of Jonathan Kent than currently exists in the comics (or on The CW’s Superman & Lois).
“I’m excited for it [Cavill]”Adams told Variety. “He’s such a great Superman, so I’m really excited for him.”
She added: “They haven’t spoken to me about it. If it’s me, great. If it’s anyone else, the role of Lois has been filled by so many great actresses in the past, so I’ll support them in whatever direction they go too.”
Man of Steelfrom director Zack Snyder, was the beginning of DC’s interconnected movie universe and the trend for Snyder’s DC films to be deeply loved and intensely hated by warring factions of the public. Batman vs Superman only exacerbated that dynamic, and then Justice League turned out to be a disaster so drastic it took Warners five years and a director’s cut to move forward with it.
Even among Snyder’s harshest critics, Cavill and Amy Adams’ performances as Superman and Lois Lane were particularly praised. You could print enough slick “He’s a great Superman, too bad he was stuck in those movies” tweets to wallpaper the White House. Despite this, former Warners management apparently resisted bringing Cavill back Black Adam star Dwayne Johnson said he had to fight tooth and nail to secure a cameo for Cavill.
Rumors have been circulating in recent weeks that the star Black Adam cameo was part of a larger effort to get a new movie for Cavill. How and if that movie will be affected by the events of The flash remains to be seen. At one point, rumors circulated that it was The flash would include a series of time travel to the events of Man of Steel.
