Amy Adams will be portraying Lois Lane in the upcoming reboot of Superman, 'Man of Steel'. However, stills of the film show her looking as she usual does, without any sort of drastic transformation. Now, fans who have seen 'Superman Returns' will attest to the fact that Kate Bosworth ended up dying her hair brown, the hair color of the comic book heroine Lois Lane. Adams, however, says that the director hired her to play Lois Lane, and that the character she is portraying is a re-imagining of the original character from the comics.
In an interview with USA Today, Adams says "This was a new idea, down to the hair color. I knew people would want to talk about my hair color. It was going to be a thing," said Adams while promoting The Master, her major fall release. "(Director) Zack (Snyder) told me he didn't hire me to play someone else. He hired me to play Lois Lane. It's a whole reimagining."
In terms of watching the film, Adams says she has not yet seen it, but that she knows Henry Cavill, who plays the titular Superman, worked very hard. "I haven't seen it. I haven't seen any footage. It's intense. Henry worked his tail off as Superman. It's different for me. A lot of running. I hold a laser taser of some sort."
Man of Steel releases June 14, 2013, and co-stars Adams with Henry Cavill, Russell Crowe, and Michael Shannon.
