Amy Adams has played fairytale royalty in “Enchanted” and co-stars with the Muppets this fall. Now she’s satisfying another girlhood fantasy: playing Lois Lane. Adams has been tapped as the tough reporter in the next Warner Bros. incarnation of “Superman,” starring British actor

Henry Cavill in the title role. Adams, who is currently promoting this November’s “The Muppets,” said she always has identified with Lane for her combination of femininity and intelligence. The studio aims to have the new “Superman” adventure in theaters late next year.
