Amy Adams

When Amy Adams was first cast as Lois Lane in "Man of Steel," people were at first somewhat surprised by the casting decision. Though most people are on board with the idea now, producer Deborah Snyder explained in a new interview why Adams was chosen for Lois.

"Amy is an amazing actor. With all the casting we tried to get the best actors we could, because it just gives it credibility. In so many ways we didn’t look at it as a genre superhero movie -- we looked at it as a great story that we were telling, and we wanted to get the best people," Snyder told SFX. "Amy embodied so much of Lois -- she’s feisty herself and she’s so versatile, and she was really just perfect for the role."

Bryan Singer

Bryan Singer wants the world to know that his triumphant return to the "X-Men" movie universe in "X-Men: Days of Future Past" will be special. According to him, the new film is much more than just a sequel or spinoff.

"It's not just another X-Men film; it’s not just about the combined cast as there will be certain technologies and other stuff that we haven’t seen before in the X-Men film," he told SFX. "There are also issues of time and we’re messing about with that. I think we’ve got it figured out. I pitched it to James Cameron when I was in New Zealand last year and he said, ‘Yes, that makes sense.'"

Thor The Dark World

Expect to see a bit more Volstagg in "Thor: The Dark World" than you did in the first "Thor." Ray Stevenson said in a new interview that the Warriors Three will have a different sort of role than they did the first time around.

"[Volstagg's] great on a battlefield. He is one of the Warriors Three and doing what they do, their time is spent fighting on many different fronts," Stevenson told The Wall Street Journal. "They're not always fighting together. Volstagg is struggling, he has a brood, they are fighting for hearth and home as much as for the idea of Asgard itself. That's where he has trouble. He's all too aware of how potentially threatening this new enemy is on both the home front and the battlefield."

Spider-Man

A slew of rumors and speculation about the fate of Spider-Man at Sony have hit the web following news that the company's head is considering selling a 15 to 20 percent stake in Sony's entertainment division.

During a brief phone interview, Pascal told Ain't It Cool News that Sony would "never ever ever" get rid of the Spider-Man property while she is at the helm. The site adds that "she feels the property is directly tied to her legacy and time at Sony. Not just that, she is really thrilled by the work on the new film."

Guardians of the Galaxy

Happy Tuesday, and welcome to your daily dose of superhero movie spoilers. The latest batch comes courtesy of JoBlo, who might have found out who the villain in "Guardians of the Galaxy" is and answered a common question about Paul Giamatti's role in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2."

As the folks over at JoBlo are quick to say, neither of these two scoops are confirmed by the people at Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures. Still, they do open up glimpses at what the folks behind the two projects could be planning. If you're looking to be spoiled, check out the news after the jump. Ready? Are you sure? Okay.

"The Amazing Spider-Man 2" has found itself yet another star. New Zealand actor Marton Csokas is reportedly currently shooting an undisclosed part in the film.

The Hollywood Reporter tucked the "Amazing Spider-Man 2" news away in a story about how Csokas has been cast as the villain in the upcoming Denzel Washington-starring adaptation of "The Equalizer." Fans probably know Csokas best for playing the role of Celeborn in "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy, or for playing Borias in "Xena: Warrior Princess."

RIPD

Is it possible for a TV spot to be better than a movie's actual trailer? That's the case with "R.I.P.D.," whose new TV teaser does a better job capturing our interest than the trailer that was released last month.

There's plenty of new footage in this spot and it just seems to work better -- and feel like less of a "Men in Black" rip-off -- than what was previously released. Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds seem to have some fun chemistry together, and it's nice that this TV spot plays up the comedy and action aspects of the film instead of just teasing its entire plot.

S.H.I.E.L.D.

ABC premiered the trailer for "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." during the network's upfronts presentation in New York and, unsurprisingly, it looks to be one of the best new shows in the fall TV line-up. During the upfronts presentation of his show, Joss Whedon opened up about what will make a series based on S.H.I.E.L.D. work for all audiences.

"Everything has to push 'character' forward, including action. We don't want 'spectacle' characters, we want some spectacle that addresses character. We always want the two to mix," Whedon said.

James Badge Dale

When James Badge Dale finally took the role of the "muscle" in "Iron Man 3," it was a pretty big deal for the actor. He admits now that he has had plenty of opportunities to star in superhero movies, but it was only the role of Eric Savin that snagged his attention.

"I've actually passed on even auditioning for almost every superhero movie I've been sent because I didn't think I could play someone in a suit," he told Movies.com. "I don't want to be in a cape or wear a codpiece. So this was the absolute best of both worlds. I get to be in a superhero movie where my suit is actually just a regular suit."

Dredd 2

It seems as though all hope is not lost for a sequel to "Dredd 3D." Due to a continued interest in the film, star Karl Urban said a "Dredd 2" is now more likely than ever.

"Interestingly enough, I did have breakfast with ["Dredd" writer] Alex Garland this morning. It's not off the agenda. Clearly everyone has woken up to the fact that an audience has found this movie and loves it," Urban told Collider. "It's entirely possible, and if people want to see another installment then they should be vocal about that, because, it can happen. The power of fandom can resurrect projects. In fact, that's what happened with 'Star Trek.' They weren't going to do a third season until fans did a letter writing campaign and they continued that series."
