So far Zack Snyder's 'Superman' movie is known as being the film that likes to break big casting news on Sunday. Not long after the final box office numbers for the weekend revealed a second place finish for Snyder's 'Sucker Punch,' the director phoned actress Amy Adams from Paris to let her know she had been chosen to play Lois Lane in his upcoming 'Superman' movie, due in theaters in December 2012.

On choosing Adams to play one of the most iconic love interests in superhero history, Snyder told the LA Times, "It goes back to what I've said about Superman and making him really understandable for today. What's important to us is making him relevant and real and making him empathetic to today's audience so that we understand the decisions he makes. That applies to Lois as well. She has to be in the same universe as him [in tone and substance]."

Adams joins a cast that includes Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, as well as Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Kent's adoptive parents here on earth. The hunt is still on for the film's villains, rumored to be the trio of Zod, Ursa and Non, who last battled Superman on the big screen in 'Superman II.' Actors who are rumored for those roles as of now include Edgar Ramirez and Michael Shannon.
