Amy will be enchanting moviegoers as the classic comic heroine!

Amy Adams is set to play leading lady Lois Lane in the upcoming Superman film, director Zack Snyder tells the Los Angeles Times.

Many actresses auditioned, but Zack says Amy, 36, was the “perfect fit” for the role. She represents the “strong, professional woman who can hold her own against any man — even if he can leap tall buildings in a single bound,” he said.

No word yet on when filming will start, or even what the title will be. But we do know that Henry Cavill will star as Clark Kent, and Kevin Costner and Diane Lane will play Clark’s parents.

This news comes on the heels of another major comic book casting, as Anne Hathaway was recently selected to play Catwoman in the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises.
