The filmmaker admits it was no easy task casting the highly-coveted part - but he knew Adams was the one from the moment he saw her.
He tells the Los Angeles Times, "There was a big, giant search for Lois. For us it was a big thing and obviously a really important role. We did a lot of auditioning but we had this meeting with Amy Adams and after that I just felt she was perfect for it.”
The actress is the latest big name to join Snyder's new project - Kevin Costner and Diane Lane were recently confirmed to play Superman's parents.
