September 28, 2010: Natalie Portman Could Be Lois Lane

Natalie Portman Yesterday we reported on the rumor that Darren Aronofsky was another director supposedly being looked at to direct the new Superman movie. Today MovieHole.net claims that, with Aronofsky at the helm, Natalie Portman could well be chosen as the next Lois Lane.

    A friend that worked on "Black Swan" with Mr Aronofsky tells us that the filmmaker has actually "been talking about this for a while" and that they don't think talks have "progressed beyond the suggestion of having Nat[alie Portman] be Lois. They wanted her first time around, this time they can get her - with Darren. But who knows where that's at now" Now that's cool! And I assume they're referring to the studio being keen on Ms Portman for "Superman Returns". "...nothing on paper yet. Don't add his name to the IMDB director listing on the film's page yet", she adds.

THR also claims that Ben Affleck's name was also on the short-list of possible directors after Warner Bros. were impressed with his work on "The Town".

    But according to insiders, the actor-director -- who, ironically, once portrayed the actor who played Superman on TV in "Hollywoodland" -- met about "Superman" last week but is no longer pursuing it.

Just who will direct and who will be cast is still a mystery. Time will tell.
