David O. Russell's American Hustle held a press conference Saturday morning that featured, among others, Bradley Cooper -- the voice of Rocket Raccoon in Guardians of the Galaxy -- and Amy Adams -- Lois Lane in Man of Steel. While Cooper talked a bit about his upcoming role in Marvel's Guardians, Adams answered some conjecture about a possible plotline for her character in the tentatively titled Batman vs. Superman.
Superhero Hype has a clip of the interview, where a reporter brings up Superman's romantic relationship with Wonder Woman -- who will be played by Gal Gadot from the Fast & Furious franchise -- in DC Comics' rebooted universe. Based on the possibility of the movies following stories from the comics, is Adams interested in seeing Lois in a love triangle, vying with Wonder Woman for Superman's affection?
"Am I interested? I don’t know," says Adams. "I mean, we’ll see. I hope that I can be involved with a woman on screen where we’re not in a love triangle. That would be fun. Maybe where we team up together and we work as teammates instead of adversaries." She goes on to add, "Wouldn't it be nice if women weren't always just, like, cat-fighting and stuff?"
Yes, Ms. Adams. That would be very nice.
Hopefully, Snyder and Goyer will be mindful of the fact they're writing full-grown adults -- an Amazon warrior and an intrepid reporter, to be exact -- and not lovesick high school students.
Batman vs. Superman is set to release July 17, 2015.
that's some wishful thinking, Lois. This movie won't pass the Bechdel test and you know it.
Mods, third time is a charm <3
