Amy Adams Stars In New Superman Movie! But How Does She Compare To Other Lois Lanes?

29 April 2013 by

Yes, there is another Superman movie out this year which means there's a new Lois Lane in town. Step forward Amy Adams. As well as being a feisty young reporter, she is also our hero's love interest in the forthcoming Man of Steel opposite the gorgeous Henry Cavill. Lucky her! The film's director, Zack Snyder said, ‘Amy has the talent to capture all of the qualities we love about Lois: smart, tough, funny, warm, ambitious, and, of course, beautiful.’ Quite right too.

And just as there have been many Supermans over the years, there have also been several Lois Lane's too.  We've no doubt The Muppets actress will do the role justice but just how will she compare to her predecessors?

1. Kate Bosworth - Superman Returns

In the 2006 movie, Lois Lane has a kid and *spoiler alert* guess who the dad is?! Yep, Superman has spawned. Of course, we don't find this out until much later on. Superman returns to earth after a lengthy hiatus to find Lois shacked up with The Daily Planet editor's nephew. Forced to save the world from the evil clutches of Lex Luther, he must also battle his feelings for his former love. If Kate Bosworth teaches us anything, it's the women won't wait five whole years for a man, even if it's Superman.

2. Erica Durance - Smallville

Lois Lane did not appear in the tv series about Superman's early years until the fourth season. The shows Executive Producer said 'There were a lot of wonderful actresses who came in for the role but I remember sitting and watching her tape and everybody was like, 'That’s her. There's no question.'' We have to admit, we were a little thrown when Erica first arrived on the scene as we'd never before seen Lois as a blonde but luckily, she reverted to type and finished the show as a brunette. Phew!

3. Teri Hatcher - The New Adventures of Superman

Back in the day before she won the hearts of the good men of Wysteria Lane in Desperate Housewives or got bumped off for bedding Mr Bond, a bob-haired Teri Hatcher graced our screens alongside Dean Cain as Lois in The New Adventures of Superman. In fact, our Saturday mornings were not complete without seeing what sort of scrape she needed rescuing from this time. Ditzy was her middle name but boy, could she work a power suit.

4. Margot Kidder - Superman, Superman II, Superman III and Superman IV

Margot was the first actress to play Lois Lane on the big screen alongside Christopher Reeve as her Superman. She starred in all four films in the original franchise and even popped up in Smallville.
