Lois Lane Won't Be In Superman, Alice Eve Rumored For Non-Lois Fem Lead
Since the casting of Henry Cavill as Clark Kent in Zack Snyder’s new Superman, the internet has been deluged with a whole host of casting rumors dedicated to guessing who will be cast as his Lois Lane. Those rumors all assumed one very fundamental thing: That Lois Lane would actually be in the movie. If you’ve been following along with this project at all it shouldn’t surprise you to learn that, maybe she won’t.
The film is reportedly set before Clark Kent gets his job at the Daily Planet, during a time he spends wandering the world experiencing local cultures and impressing people with his ability to eat spicy food. Clark Kent didn’t meet Lois until he went to work at the Daily Planet and if that’s really the plot, then Lois wouldn’t be in the movie. Instead according to Variety the names you’ve been hearing rumored for the Lois Lane part are probably really just contenders for some other unspecified female lead who is not Lois Lane in any way.
Along with the fairly logical conclusion that Lois Lane won’t be in the new Superman movie Variety also drops out their own list of possible female lead frontrunners. They’re going with Alice Eve, Diane Kruger, and Rosamund Pike. All three of those actresses, it’s worth noting, are very blonde and look absolutely nothing like Lois Lane. On the other hand, some of the other actresses rumored definitely seem very Lois like. Here’s the others listed so far: Mila Kunis, Olivia Wilde, Kristen Stewart (confirmed dropped out), Rachel McAdams, Jessica Biel, Malin Ackerman, Dianna Agron.
Bottom line here, pretty much anyone who claims to know who Snyder’s planning to cast as the film’s female lead, should be treated as a fool and mostly ignored. No one knows. All names are being considered, but if it’s not Lois Lane, does it really matter all that much? Since it’s not Lois we know that whoever they cast will only be in one movie, to be instantly ignored and forgotten in the sequel whenever Lois finally does show up to take her rightful place in Superman’s life. At least this story led you to a really nice Alice Eve photo. You’re welcome.
