No Lois Lane In The New “Superman”

So much for all those Lois Lane rumors this week, turns out Warner Bros. Pictures is trying something altogether different.

German actress Diane Kruger (“Inglourious Basterds,” “National Treasure”) along with Brits Alice Eve (“She’s Out of My League”), and Rosamund Pike (“Die Another Day,” “An Education”) have now emerged as the three actresses in contention for the female lead character in the upcoming “Superman” reboot reports Variety.

The big twist? While the character’s identity hasn’t been disclosed, it has been confirmed that it will NOT be Lois Lane. The studio apparently doesn’t want a name that could overshadow leading man Henry Cavill, so all the talk of Rachel McAdams and Kristen Stewart as Lois is now rendered null and void.

The studio is also in search of its villain, but no names have been locked and which character to be used (ie. Lex Luthor, General Zod, Brainiac, Darkseid, Parasite, etc.) will be used. Zack Snyder directs from a script by David Goyer with Christopher Nolan producing. Filming kicks off this Summer.
