Snyder: Amy's going to be great

Amy Adams will be "awesome" as Lois Lane, director Zack Snyder has said.

The Enchanted actress has been cast as Superman's love interest in his forthcoming reboot, and the Sucker Punch filmmaker assured she is the right choice.

"I think you can expect all the things she's capable of. What we're trying to do is make a movie that lives in the real world so you will see her being real, beautiful and awesome, but trying to find some real moments," he said.

Zack has no qualms about taking on Superman - which will be produced by Christopher Nolan - although it is a vast change from Sucker Punch, which he wrote and drew the storyboards for.

"Superman is a divinely different kind of concept, even just visually and everything about it. And it's been that way since I pitched it," he continued.

"Once I'd talked to Chris about how I wanted to make the movie and then told him the way I wanted to approach it, it was a whole other thing in a lot of ways. For me, it was different because I'd sort of exorcised those demons in Sucker Punch."

He has to curb his imagination though, to some extent.

He added: "There are things sexually probably and in terms of the way I visualise violence (I can't do). But it's just a different exercise. You sort of use your brain in a different way."

:: Sucker Punch is in cinemas now.
