MTV recently interviewed actress Amy Adams (Lois Lane) while she was on a press junket for Clint Eastwood’s “The Trouble With the Curve.” Featured on the site’s Splash Page, Adams promoted the baseball film, and then elaborated on comments made by Michael Shannon (General Zod) in reference to Henry Cavill’s committed portrayal of Superman. This is what she had to say.
“You feel like you’re in scenes with Superman,” Adams agreed. “He is completely invested and yoked and he just really took the role very seriously and yeah, he’s fantastic, he’s just so yum. He’s the nicest guy, aside from the face,” she said.
Finally, what did Adams think of Shannon’s performance as General Zod?
“He’s fantastic. He’s terrifying,” she said. “I only had a couple scenes with him.”
One thing’s for certain, Lois Lane and General Zod are destined to cross paths!
