Amy Adams stopped by the Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Thursday night where she spoke about her role as Lois Lane in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Man of Steel. In addition to praising the performance of her Superman co-star, Henry Cavill, Adams even took a moment to serenade the audience with “Can You Read My Mind”, the classic Maureen McGovern song used in Richard Donner’s original Superman film.
In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry Cavill) is a young twenty-something journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond his imagination. Transported years ago to Earth from Krypton, a highly advanced, distant planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question ‘Why am I here?’ Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Costner), Clark discovers having extraordinary abilities means making difficult decisions. When the world is in dire need of stability, an even greater threat emerges. Clark must become a Man of Steel, to protect the people he loves and shine as the world’s beacon of hope – Superman.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Michael Shannon, Russell Crowe and Ayelet Zurer and is scheduled to arrive in theaters on June 14th, 2013.
