While most would agree that Amy Adams is one of, if not the best actress working today with the possibility of the her set to earn two Oscar nominations just this year for her incredible work in two of the year's best films Arrival and Nocturnal Animals.
However one her most notable roles is one that has divided many fanboys and fangirls across the world and that is of course her role as the beloved comic book character Lois Lane on the big-screen in Warner Bros. and DC Films' DC Cinematic Universe aka the DCEU.
Her role is very much a divisive one with some fans loving her take on Lois and others saying the actress just doesn't fit who Lois Lane is supposed to be. However many people including myself have always said that its not really her fault, its that the role of Lois Lane in the DCEU is extremely underwritten at this point and is often used as a plot device and/or having her be the "damsel in distress".
It now appears that even Amy Adams herself agrees with our opinion on her character telling Variety:
That’s the tricky thing with Lois, that I find is, I love playing her, I love everyone I work with, but sometimes it’s tricky because I feel she’s in service of the story instead of the story serving the character. That sometimes can be tricky when you show up and you really wanna retain a character and you have to serve the story….in a perfect universe they all work together.
While this is certainly that first time the Adams has voiced her thoughts on the character publicly, hopefully its not the first that Warner Bros. and company have heard the actresses displeasure and can take steps in future films to give such a talented actress like Amy Adams much more to do with a character as strong as Lois Lane much more depth.
