Actress Amy Adams has been making the press rounds as of late, for her new movies The Master and Trouble with the Curve. Naturally, she has also been fielding questions about next summer's Man of Steel, where she plays a "reinvented" Lois Lane. She recently spoke about her Man of Steel co-star Henry Cavill, revealing how invested he was in this superhero character.

"You feel like you're in scenes with Superman. He is completely invested and yoked and he just really took the role very seriously and yeah, he's fantastic, he's just so yum. He's the nicest guy, aside from the face."

The actress also revealed she shared a few scenes with Michael Shannon, who plays the "terrifying" General Zod.

"He's fantastic. He's terrifying. I only had a couple scenes with him."

Man of Steel was released June 14th, 2013 and stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Diane Lane, Russell Crowe, Antje Traue, Harry Lennix, Richard Schiff. The film is directed by Zack Snyder.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Oh Master, oh wise one of Movieweb, ye who humps @thedude-abide's leg at every turn, ye who points out the error of my ways (which weren't errors until his Holy See decided they were), please forgive my trespass.

    @dan1 -- That was a post of an arrogant douche bag? I guess you use the term lightly. Which would make a lot of sense, taking your history into consideration.

    I am glad Cavill took this serious. I hope that he gets more chances to play Superman. I only hope that Snyder took this serious too

    @dan1 -- Yes, but not quite. You either exaggerated, or based it on one valid example, if not caught completely wrong. Oh, and you misplaced my trait for yours. Maybe next time, buddy. ;)

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx is an arrogant douchebag, @themoviefanatic is too obvious, @narrator is long winded, @mcleve02 laughs too much, @comicbookfan is stuck in the past, @bryanyentz hates all movies, and I can be a jerk.
