Adams, Irons On “Batman v Superman” Roles

Amy Adams says that despite the presence of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman character in Zack Snyder’s upcoming “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” don’t expect some fanboy love triangle in the film between Clark Kent (Henry Cavill), Adams’ own character Lois Lane and the Amazonian heroine. Adams tells Coming Soon:

“It’s exciting to get to bring in all these other characters, and I was really excited that Gal was involved, because it was a nice to have another girl on set. Even if we don’t work together a lot, it was nice to have her there… They always think that if you put in another woman and automatically… ‘Catfight!’ No, I think that’s a male fantasy thing. I don’t think that’s reality. I don’t know how it will turn out, if we’re going to be competition, but we are not in this, I can safely say, and we’re not in real life. She’s just the coolest girl ever.”

In another interview for Collider, Adams says that despite all the superheroes competing for screen time, Lois will still be an important player in the action:

“Lois is still sort of like the key to the information, you know? She’s the girl going out and getting it and figuring it out and putting it together and all of that, so she’s very much involved, but I kind of leave the heavy lifting to the boys, you know? So to speak. They’re awesome together. It’s kind of like this big fest of muscles … it was really kind of nice. And then you add Jason Momoa and Gal Gadot and I felt very short and, yeah.”

Meanwhile, Jeremy Irons has spoken a bit more about his version of Bruce Wayne’s butler Alfred Pennyworth, telling Indiewire:

“Oh he’ll be quite different. He has an interesting history. He’s a very competent man. He’s the sort of man I think anyone would like to be married to. He can sort of do everything: change light bulbs, blow up bridges if he has to.”

Capping off the news on the film today, OneHeadlightLink reports that casting is underway for two young boys in the film, both required to have extensive wushu, kung fu or pencak silat training.

One of the roles is said to be a 12-year-old Bruce Wayne, the other is an unidentified 10-year-old boy.
