Amy Adams and Andrew Garfield sat down for a chat for Variety’s “Actors on Actors” series. Adams started the interview off asking Garfield what it was like working in the Spider-Man universe, and she gave her opinion on playing Lois Lane in the DC Films universe as well.
“You’re doing something in service of something — the character is serving the story or serving a canon,” Adams said of her comic book character role.
“That’s the tricky thing with Lois Lane that I find. I love playing her, I love everyone I work with, but sometimes it’s tricky because I feel she’s in service of the story instead of the story serving a character. That can be tricky: When you show up and you really want to retain a character and you have to serve the story. Does that make sense? In a perfect universe, they all work together. I always want to service the story, but I want to feel supported in the character as well.”
Hopefully Lois Lane will have a bit more to do in Justice League, though with so many other characters in that movie, Adams may have to wait for the next Superman movie to really get the fulfillment she’s looking for.
