Amy Adams also has some big boots to fill as Lois Lane in Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot,
Man of Steel.
The pressure on Adams must be enormous - most comic-book movie stars have only the eight-panel incarnation of the character to live up to, Amy also has Margot Kidder's memorable take to equal.
But, seeing as she's held her own in some of the 21st century's biggest dramas to date (
The Master, The Fighter
), we'd say she's got a pretty good chance of being the definitive big screen incarnation of the character.
One thing's for sure, she's braver than the last son of Krypton to take it on.
