Man of Steel actress Amy Adams has said she would reprise her role as Lois Lane in upcoming DC films after Henry Cavill confirmed his return as Superman.
She expressed excitement at Cavill’s comeback during an interview with Variety but said she hasn’t yet been approached by the studio. “I’m thrilled for him,” she said. “He’s such a wonderful Superman so I’m very excited for him.”
When asked about her own return, Adams added: “They haven’t spoken to me about it. If it’s me, great. If it’s somebody else, the role of Lois has been filled by so many wonderful actresses in the past, so I’ll support whatever direction they go.”

Adams first appeared as Lois Lane in the 2013 comic book movie hit, Man of Steel, going on to appear alongside Cavill’s Superman in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice as well as the critically maligned Justice League film.
Spoiler Warning: Details of Black Adam’s mid-credit scene appear in the following paragraphs.
Cavill’s return announcement came hot on the tail of his appearance in Black Adam in an uncredited cameo where he appears as the Man of Steel in a mid-credit scene.
“I wanted to make it official that I am back as Superman and the image you see in this post and what you saw in Black Adam are a very small taste of what’s to come,” said Cavill at the time.
It’s unclear how Superman will fit into DC’s new 10-year roadmap, but with James Gunn becoming DC’s own Kevin Feige, it feels like we can expect a more cohesive vision for the DC universe moving forward.
Whether or not Adams, Diane Lane (Superman’s mother), or any of the other actors involved in DC’s recent Superman films will return to the fray remains to be seen.
