Even though the release of Batman v. Superman is more than a year away, Amy Adams is still getting questions about it during her Big Eyes press junket. When asked about her feelings on Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, she said she was excited to “have another girl on set,” though she scoffed at the fact that everyone keeps asking her if there will be a love triangle in the plot.
They always think that if you put in another woman and automatically… ‘Catfight!’ No, I think that’s a male fantasy thing. I don’t think that’s reality.She can’t speak to future films, but she says there’s no Diana/Lois feud happening here.
I don’t know how it will turn out, if we’re going to be competition, but we are not in this, I can safely say, and we’re not in real life. She’s just the coolest girl ever.This is nothing that Amy Adams hasn’t been saying for a full year now. Last December, when asked if she was interested in the possibility of a Lois/Wonder Woman/Clark Kent love mess, she said,
Am I interested? I don’t know. 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. Wouldn’t it be nice if women weren’t always just, like, cat-fighting and stuff?Of course, this question isn’t unfounded. Just do a quick Google image search for “Lois Lane Wonder Woman,” and your first half page of results will be almost entirely tears and slaps and pouts:
So it’s good to hear that Batman v. Superman is still leaning away from the obvious here. It’s especially surprising coming from Zack Snyder who lives for the obvious and has never met a girl-on-girl upskirt he didn’t like. Is it possible that he’s growing as a director and a human being? I’ll believe it when I see it.
