‘Kick-Ass’ creator praises Amy Adams’ Lois Lane casting

Mark Millar calls her 'the best big-name actress of her generation.'

Mark Millar has heaped praise on the decision to cast Amy Adams as Lois Lane in the forthcoming Superman reboot.

The Scottish writer created Kick-Ass and the forthcoming Nemesis, but he started his career working on classic superhero comic franchises including Superman.

Posting on Twitter.com/mrmarkmillar yesterday (March 28) he called Zack Snyder‘s decision to cast 36 year-old Adams as Clark Kent‘s love interest “inspired”.

“Can I just say that Amy Adams as Lois is inspired casting?” he wrote. “She’s the best big-name actress of her generation and Lois SHOULD be in her 30s.

“She’s won a Pulitzer and kinda given up on guys by the time she meets Superman. She can’t be a 25 year-old. She needs to be formidable and Donner got this right when he cast 30-something Kidder opposite 24 year-old Reeve. It’s why Kate Bosworth didn’t work.”

Adams will star opposite Henry Cavill in the new film, currently titled Man Of Steel.
