Would love to do 'Man of Steel' sequel: Amy Adams

New Delhi, June 12 (IANS) Amy Adams not only connects with her character's determination in "Man of Steel" but also feels blessed to have featured in the movie. She says she would be honoured to do its sequel if there'll be one.

"I think that one of the things I have in common with Lois is a lot of determination and going after something. I'm not going to let my peer get in the way of my pursuit," Amy told IANS in en email-interaction from Los Angeles.

She plays Lois Lane in Warner Bros' "Man of Steel" and feels blessed to be part of the Zack Snyder-directed superhero movie.

Based on the DC Comics character Superman, the film, releasing here Friday, also features Henry Cavill along with Michael Shannon, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Laurence Fishburne and Russell Crowe.

How did she think "Man of Steel" will help in moving the franchise forward?

"It's so hard to say what the (audiences') reaction would be...I am part of the film and really happy to be part of it ... they've found a wonderful truth in this version and they've set up beautiful storyline and I think Henry does a really great job," she said.

"...I don't know if there'll be a sequel. It would be an honour to be involved if there is, but that's up to others," she said recalling her memories of watching "Superman 2" with a group of girls when she was six years old.

And she had a word of appreciation for her co-stars.

"He (Cavill) is genius casting, not just physically but he's also able to bring this humility and earnest quality that doesn't always go along with somebody who embodies the physical aspect of Superman," she said.

Amy made her big screen debut in 1999 release "Drop Dead Gorgeous", a black comedy, but her breakthrough role was in 2005 independent film "Junebug". She played Ashley Johnsten, for which she received critical acclaim and an Academy Award nomination for best supporting actress.

Is there any dream role?

"I've just been enjoying the journey. I turn out to be very pre-meditated in what I'm looking for. I knew I wanted to do a film of this nature...," she said.

The actress has a three-year-old daughter, Aviana, with fiance Darren Le Gallo and while shooting for the movie, she felt like "going away from her daughter".

"For anyone with a child, it's exhausting anywhere that you're working. It's a very strange thing. It's not something anyone can prepare you for. But I find that by spending the time working, I'm really bettering myself," she said.

Her total involvement in the film was about six months and Aviana came for the first part, she said and added: "We were in Chicago for about three weeks and then there was back and forth..."

"I found myself going away from my daughter. It was such a long shoot. I was kind of going back and forth...," said the 38-year-old.

After leaving her daughter behind to complete the film, Amy was "guilt ridden and sad".

"And, I was like - 'How am I going to make it through six months of this?' So I really thought about what I could be doing with that time to better myself, whether reading mothering books or reading or going to the - just getting myself to a more centric place so that I can be a better mom when I wasn't around."

Has she seen any Bollywood film?

"No, I have not been to India. I haven't seen a lot but I saw 'Bride and Prejudice'. I had a friend who was in that, but that wasn't necessarily Indian. But it was close to being Indian," said Amy.
