The restructuring of the DCEU may have claimed another victim. Amy Adams revealed that she believes her time portraying Lois Lane has come to an end.
Adams sat down with Aquaman actress Nicole Kidman for an episode of Variety’s Actors on Actors. The two actresses discussed their roles in the DC Extended Universe leading Adams to reveal that she doesn’t appear to have a future in the franchise:
“I think I’m out of the DC Universe now. I think they’re revamping that. I don’t know the details.”
Earlier this year, a report from The Hollywood Reporter claimed that negotiations between Warner Brother and Superman actor Henry Cavill regarding a new contract had fallen apart. That made it appear that Cavill would no longer be suiting up as Kal-El, although, Warner Brothers quickly released a statement claiming that wasn’t the case. What the response did make clear is that no Superman projects are currently in development at WB, leaving no place for Lois Lane to appear.
If Adam’s doesn’t appear in any future DC projects, 2017s Justice League would have been the final time we see her iteration of Lois Lane on the big screen. She made her first appearance in Man of Steel and would later appear in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice.
