Amy Adams Snyder's 'Sucker Punch,' came in second this week at the box office, but he had bigger news to report as 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]."
