But recently, as the movie draws ever nearer, Adams has been discussing how her new, updated take on Lois Lane differs from the way the character has been portrayed in the past. In a recent interview with Empire (via Comic Book Movie), the star reveals that:
I have always identified with Lois. She is suited to my personality. When she came up for the third time, I was like, 'Okay, this is ridiculous. I have to play Lois'. I know other people have played the role, and others will play the role after me, but this was me putting my stamp on it.
And, according to Adams, that stamp will involve Lois Lane as an "independent, feisty woman, all of those things, but set in a more identifiable world." Although the actress is careful not to criticise any of the past incarnations:
I loved that [Margot Kidder] version, but we have moved on. She has become more a free ranging journalist, someone who likes to be hands on. The nature of the newspaper business has changed so much. There is so much more pressure.
Judging from the second trailer, I think Supes and Lois are going to suit each other perfectly! Adams is fantastic in everything I've seen her in and she may finally make Lois less than completely annoying. Plus, she may be the sexiest Lois ever...
