Amy Adams has become the latest addition to Zack Snyder's 'Superman' revival as she bagged the role of leading lady Lois Lane. This comes amidst news that Viggo Mortensen may be up for the part of evil villain General Zod and that Kevin Costner will play the part of Jonathan Kent. Adams will star opposite Henry Cavill as Clark Kent himself and it will be interesting to see the on screen romance blossom. This marks another step in the right direction for Adams, who is coming off the back of an Oscar nomination for 'The Fighter'.
It seems many young actors and actresses are simply coming up out of nowhere these days. Even Superman will be played by a fairly unknown actor in the form of Henry Cavill and we have seen similar situations with 'Thor', which is set for release in April this year, in which the relatively unknown Chris Hemsworth was cast as the leading man. Another similarly swift rise to fame was evident with Andrew Garfield who now seems to be cast in everything. We'll see if this will happen to Amy Adams but it's beginning to look likely that the 36 year old will be gracing our screens much more often.
