DC Women Kicking Ass

Thoughts, pictures, reviews and other stuff about the women in comics who kick ass. This is a feminist site. Deal with it.
"... just a dreadful little site that just basically compiles lists." - poster/DC Comics forum
"... provides a much-needed voice that is not often heard on traditional comic sites." - Wired's Geek Dad
... she's pretty amazingly ignorant of comics outside of the Batverse and some recent Wonder Woman, and seems pretty clueless about the way the industry works. That and she doesn't write that well at all." anonymous poster, Dreamwidth
" ... a phenomenal blog that's always up to date with female superhero news ..."

Amy Adams Grew Up “Wanting to Be Lois Lane”

The publicity drum for Man of Steel is beginning to pick up in anticipation of the first full trailer next month.  Yesterday WB announced that film will be released in June in both IMAX and 3-D versions.

And Amy Adams continues to discuss her role as Lois Lane. Yesterday in the LA Times spoke about her love of the character, again.

When you grow up knowing all the words to the love themefrom “Superman,” as Amy Adams did, the thought of one day portraying Lois Lane doesn’t really pop into your head.

"Never," says Adams, who will indeed be playing Supe’s main squeeze in next summer’s Superman origin story "Man of Steel." "I did, however, grow up wanting to be Lois Lane. For real. Really wanting to be Lois Lane, not just an actress playing her.”

Adams has been effusive about Lois before but in this interview she added another dimension to her affinity for the character. In this interview she reveals that it is not that Lois is just a great character that made Adams want to be the character:

…Let’s cut to the chase. I wanted Superman.”

You can read the rest of the interview here. And here’s a look at Adams on the set of MoS.

Amy Adams on Lois Lane

Adams spoke to Total Film and, yeah, she gets it:

"What I love about (her) is that she’s successful and independent.

"She was smart and feminine and that’s something that I am going to teach my daughter . You don’t have to be a man to be powerful. You can be a powerful woman."

The picture below accompanies the interview.

Lois was in both Action Comics (with Jimmy Olsen who if you are wondering where Guy Gardner’s bowl cut went, look no more than Jimmy’s head) and Swamp Thing. The appearances were too small to register, but she was there.
