Amy Adams talks Lois Lane in ‘Man of Steel’ and sings on the ‘Tonight Show with Jay Leno’

Amy Adams, was on the Tonight Show With Jay Leno and professed her passion to be Lois Lane at an early age. She sang a few lines from “Can You Read My Mind” used in Richard Donner’s Superman.

The star of “The Muppets” will play Lois opposite Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman.

“It’s so cool. I’m so excited. (looking to the audience) You guys are going to love it.”

Leno pointed the legacy of Superman and asked how Adams felt about the character.

“I was really into the movies…Christopher Reeves, Margot Kidder and I really wanted to be Lois. Superman was just awesome…I didn’t think I would be an actress playing Lois, I just wanted to be Lois…be Lois Lane.”

Adams and Leno exchange some jokes over Clark as Superman’s secret identity and his use of glasses as his disguise.

Henry Cavill also touched on the romantic element of the movie in a recent interview, adding, “I can’t talk about that too much. I don’t want to be giving away the idea of the film too early, but Amy is a great actress, very professional, a pleasure to work with.”
