Short list for SUPERMAN’s Lois Lane revealed?
With star of The Tudors, Henry Cavill, cast as the man himself, Superman, it’s about time we find out who will play his fellow reporter and love interest, Lois Lane.
And apparently, WB is looking to a really interesting collection of actresses. What’s Playing is reporting (via The Playlist), that the studio is looking at Malin Akerman, Kristen Stewart, Dianna Agron, Rachel McAdams, Jessica Biel, Kristen Bell, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
A few names scream out as being a little unlikely, particularly Akerman, Stewart, and Agron. The three of them don’t quite fit the age bracket that one would imagine a Lois Lane, given the age and look of Cavill. That said, age is probably the smallest issue when casting Snyder’s Lane, but it does seem to be a bit unlikely that they would go as “old” as Akerman (who is 32), or as young as Agron. Stewart is in the hunt to join the upcoming SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN, so age may not be an issue, it may be sheer scheduling.
The likeliest choices are McAdams and Biel, both of which were being looked at for the role of Selina Kyle in WB’s upcoming THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. Winstead and Bell were both mentioned by “third and fourth-hand sources” so take those with a grain of salt, but honestly, I think Winstead is the most interesting choice for this role. She’s a great actress, and more than looks the part.
What do you think? Who would you cast as Lois Lane?
