Modern Lois Lane Is No Damsel In Distress!
Now that all the hype from 'Iron Man 3' and the new 'Star Trek' has worn off (slightly), we can turn our attention to future films. Next up is 'Man of Steel,' but rather than focus more on Cavill's character, let's discuss the modern role that Amy Adams will play.
Ever since Adams was first cast as Lois Lane, she's received a fair amount of criticism. Some felt that she wasn't a good fit for the sexy Lois Lane, and others feel that she's the perfect fit. No matter what side of the fence you're on, you can expect this year's Lois to be a completely different kind of woman -- a thoroughly modern one, in fact.
Right in line with current mantras like "Strong Is the New Skinny" and "Female Power," the newest Lois Lane isn't a damsel in distress by any stretch of the imagination. 'US Weekly' recently interviewed Adams to see what her role was all about - you may find yourself a tad bit surprised.
US Weekly tells us that the new Lois Lane "prefers business casual, is cell obsessed, and fights with her boss." Today's Lois Lane is social media savvy and comes with all the perks of being a modern day journalist (laptop, smartphone, and practical clothing included).
First look pics show Adams dressed in winter hats, pants, and baggy jackets. The days of Lois Lane in pencil skirts and heels are long gone, it seems. US weekly bills her as a "modern day business woman," and that certainly doesn't include any red lipstick or too-tight blazers.
Adams has entirely revamped the role of Lois Lane to fit today's woman, but some fans aren't thrilled about this modern twist. Then again, it's not necessarily all about male viewers - plenty of females will flock to theatres to see the new 'Man of Steel,' and those females want to see an empowered woman...not a flailing female.
How do you feel about the new Lois Lane? Take a look at the pics below and let us know what you think!
