Amy Adams: 'I would date Superman in real life'

Amy Adams plays Superman's girlfriend onscreen and given the choice she would take him over a moody Batman any day.

The 42 -year-old actress, who stars as Lois Lane in the new DC superhero flick Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, revealed she could see herself keeping home with the Man of Steel.

In the new movie Amy's Lois Lane is seen to bring out the domestic side in the comic book hero, as she and Superman (Henry Cavill) play house, planning what they'll make for dinner, and even sharing a bath together.

Her familiarity with the role means she has grown to understand her fictional boyfriend down to the smallest details. "He probably drinks red (wine)," she told British newspaper The Metro.

"They probably cuddle on the sofa and watch a movie. Of course he never gets to see the ending because he's always running off to safe somebody," she imagines.

If the American Hustle star had the choice she revealed she would definitely choose Superman's Clark Kent over dating Batman's alter ego Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) any day.

"I'm more of a Superman kind of lady" the star admitted, "I like Batman's dark moodiness, but I'm not really tolerant of that in a relationship. I would be like, 'Oh gosh, can we not talk about your problems?'"

She admits she'd rather date all American hero Superman over the more dark and brooding character of Batman because staying optimistic is something she needs to work on. "I have my dark days but I try to practice a lot of gratitude and pull myself out of it," the star offered.

Amy married actor Darren Le Gallo, 41, last year (15) and they have a daughter together, Aviana, six.

She is keen to be a "strong role model" for her daughter, and believes she has accomplished that with her turn as the intrepid news reporter Lois Lane.

"(Lois') "bravery doesn't come from acting like a man but the strength of her character... her softness and femininity," said the star.

Similarly describing herself as a mixture of "femininity and purpose" the actress is the perfect foil for the caped superhero.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is on general release in the U.S and U.K. this Friday (25Mar16).
