February 4, 2011: Superman Movie Female Lead Role Up For Grabs

Eve, Kruger and Pike Variety.com are reporting that Alice Eve (She's Out of My League), Diane Kruger (National Treasure) and Rosamund Pike (Barney's Version) are all competing for a female lead role in the up-coming Superman movie... but it's not Lois Lane.

    With Henry Cavill set as the Man of Steel, Warner Bros. now moves on to its female lead, and a short list of contenders is coming together.

    Alice Eve, Diane Kruger and Rosamund Pike have emerged as the three thesps being considered for the character, whose identity hasn't been disclosed -- but it's not Lois Lane.

    Early reports had names such as Rachel McAdams and Kristen Stewart as female leads, but sources tell Variety that the studio doesn't want a name that could overshadow its leading man.

The Variety article has people speculating that Lois Lane won't be in the movie at all. But it doesn't actually state that, it just says that these three actresses are being considered for a lead female role that isn't Lois Lane. Whether Lois Lane is a major or minor character in the movie, or indeed if she's in it at all, will be discovered in time.

The article also states that Warner Bros. is also seeking actors for the movie's villain, but no names have been mentioned yet.
