Check below the interview Amy did to the magazine:
How would you pitch Superman and Lois’ relationship in this film?
I would say that they’re at odds and then they’re… friends, you know?
How was your first meeting with Zach Snyder?
I could tell he was going to be very collaborative and really focused – not only on the visuals but on the character’s journey. I wanted to play Lois so badly, so I tried not to look too eager!
What did you most want to convey with your version of Lois?
I wanted her to be a woman other women could relate to. And not be sort of a pest. Lois can be kind of omnipresent, turning up at very inconvenient times – which she does! – but you understand her reasons.
You’ve been in the running before…
When J.J.Abrams and Brett Ratner were planning a version, I actually did a screen test with Matt Bomer. And then when Superman Returns came round I read again. So this was my third go to it.
You did to get play a baddie in TV’s Smallville though…
I played a girl who was quite heavy then lost weight quickly… I remember speeding a lot of time in prosthetics!
Did you go straight from The Master to Man of Steel?
It was about three days, I think. By the time (The Master) was done, I was kind of in a dark place, but Zach has this amazing infectious energy you get caught up with. he’s all “Come on, let’s get the game going!”, like a football match.
How physically demanding was it?
My God, I got off lucky. Henry has tales to tell! I chose correct in playing a mortal rather than a superhero. I feel on my hip and created quite a bruise, but that was it.
Was there intensive greenscreen work?
The most intense work was always with another actor, but I had scenes where I had to see things that weren’t there. It’s the first time I’ve had to run through invisible doors before they close.
What did you get up to between takes?
On, no good. I’m always up to no good. I took naps, I knitted. Meryl (Streep) taught me how, I don’t know how many finished products I have, but I’ve started plenty.
What superpower would you like to have?
Oh, I’d wanna know what people are thinking. I’m not a fan of flying, which I guess is strange for a film like this…
