As the Sucker Punch reaction becomes even more vicious and hyperbolic, Warner Bros wants you to put your thoughts towards The Next Big Thing: Superman

So, in the middle of a Sunday afternoon, they released their second biggest casting announcement.   Although, if I remember rightly, they dropped Henry Cavill’s casting in a similarly “off” time, so maybe Sunday is simply the new Monday.

The news is, of course, that they’ve cast Lois Lane.  According to Heat Vision, it’s none other than Amy Adams.

“Second only to Superman himself, the question of who will play Lois Lane is arguably what fans have been most curious about,” Snyder said in an official statement.  “So we are excited to announce the casting of Amy Adams, one of the most versatile and respected actresses in films today. Amy has the talent to capture all of the qualities we love about Lois: smart, tough, funny, warm, ambitious and, of course, beautiful.”

I love Amy Adams. You love Amy Adams. She’s actually someone who can play smart and spunky, but seemingly not notice the guy in glasses who shares her newsdesk looks remarkably like Metropolis’ greatest hero.  She’s a great pick, and there’s not much more I can say.   It doesn’t matter anyway, Sucker Punch will still dominate this unrelated story.
