While I think the writing really let her down and didn't get the chance to explore her much (I actually feel we got to know Margot's Lois better than Amy's.) And yes, I do feel she tried hard and acted her socks off, I still think Lois just isn't exactly in her skill-set. If you're a Hollywood director, for instance, you have to know actors skill-sets, because if you have a particular chracter in mind, you want to know who can pull off that character. That's when you start looking at actors skill-sets. Of course it does often come down to audition though. I guess Amy just nailed her audition.
In what way is "Lois Lane not in her skillset"? That might be true, but given the writing, I submit that we can't possibly know.

I can't think of any other role involving Amy Adams that she hasn't nailed. She has 4 academy award nominations for best supporting actress in The Master, The Fighter, Doubt, and Junebug. She was also praised for Enchanted, and early reports are that she rocked in Her and in American Hustle.

You mean she played her role as specified by the script?

Here's a query for you:
What personality imperfection does Lois Lane in MoS have?

Answer:
none.

That's how shallow the writing was.
