Amy Adams has landed the coveted role of journalist Lois Lane in the upcoming “Superman” reboot from Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures.

Adams joins Henry Cavill, Diane Lane and Kevin Costner in the production, which will be directed by Zack Snyder.

“Second only to Superman himself, the question of who will play Lois Lane is arguably what fans have been most curious about,“ Snyder said in a statement Sunday. ”So we are excited to announce the casting of Amy Adams, one of the most versatile and respected actresses in films today. Amy has the talent to capture all of the qualities we love about Lois: smart, tough, funny, warm, ambitious and, of course, beautiful.“

Adams will join Phyllis Coates, Margot Kidder and Kate Bosworth as actresses who have played the iconic Lane.

“Superman: Man of Steel” is currently set for a December 2012 release.
