It's a bird, it's a plane ... No, it's another major 'Superman' casting announcement.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Oscar-nominated actress Amy Adams is set to play the coveted role of Lois Lane in Zack Snyder's 'Superman' reboot.

“Second only to Superman himself, the question of who will play Lois Lane is arguably what fans have been most curious about," Snyder said in a statement Sunday. "So we are excited to announce the casting of Amy Adams, one of the most versatile and respected actresses in films today. Amy has the talent to capture all of the qualities we love about Lois: smart, tough, funny, warm, ambitious and, of course, beautiful."


Adams joins a star-studded cast that includes Henry Cavill in the title role, and Diane Lane and Kevin Costner as Clark Kent/Superman's adoptive parents.

Among the actress who have played the iconic role of Lois Lane are Phyllis Coates, Margot Kidder and most recently Kate Bosworth.

'Superman: Man of Steel' flies into theaters December 2012.

Adams was last seen on the big screen in 'The Fighter,' for which she received a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination. Other major roles include 'Enchanted,' 'Junebug,' 'Doubt' and 'Julie & Julia.'
