VIDEO: New ‘Man of Steel’ Trailer Features Amy Adams

We've seen what Henry Cavill looks as Superman, but now we finally have a chance to see Amy Adams as Lois Lane.

Warner Bros. released a new trailer that sees Superman reflecting on his childhood on Earth. We also catch glimpses of Russell Crowe's Jor-El and Kevin Costner as Superman's adoptive father, Jonathan Kent. The film, directed by Zack Snyder and produced by Christopher Nolan, is set for a June 14 release next year.

General Zod named as next Superman Villain

Michael ShannonGeneral Zod DC Comics

The Superman reboot officially has a name and a villain. Michael Shannon (of Boardwalk Empire fame) has signed on to play General Zod in Man of Steel.

General Zod appeared in Superman: The Movie (1978) and Superman II (1980). He’s been a part of the DC Comic world since 1961. In the comics, Zod is also from Krypton and has many of Superman’s powers and abilities.

As Zod, Michael Shannon will square off against Henry Cavill as Superman. Amy Adams will play Lois Lane, Kevin Costner Jonathan Kent and Diane Lane will portray Martha Kent.

Super! Amy Adams is Lois Lane

Amy Adams

Amy Adams is going to make a super-cute Lois Lane in the Superman reboot, even if she has to dye her trademark red locks. Director Zack Snyder says the actress is “perfect” for the role (the Golden Globe nomination sure didn't hurt her in the audition room). He picked Adams after a lengthy search, because every superhero needs a leading lady.

Adams will be playing the career-minded love interest to Clark Kent/Superman Henry Cavill. Supporting cast includes Kevin Costner, who will play dad Jonathan Kent and Diana Lane as mom Martha Kent.

Kevin Costner Signing on to Superman Cast?

Kevin CostnerKevin Costner is talking with producers about taking on a “key role” in the upcoming Superman movie. Henry Cavill (The Tudors) has already been cast as the main man in blue and red, and now he’ll need a supporting cast.

But, which role will Kevin Costner play? Will the new reboot feature a considerably older Lex Luthor character, as did the last reboot? Or will Costner play a good guy, maybe Daily Planet editor Perry White or Clark Kent’s dad Jonathon Kent? Perhaps this reboot features newer Superman characters, like police commissioner Henderson maybe?
