More Hotties Vy To Be Zack Snyder’s Lois Lane

Wednesday, February 2 by

The race for Lois Lane has begun. With Henry Cavill on board to pla the Man of Steel, Zack Snyder is looking to find Lois Lane. We reported earlier in the week that Kristen Stewart, Rachel McAdams, Jessica Biel, Malin Akerman, and Dianna Agron are all being considered for the part.

Unfortunately for people who don’t care about an age-appropriate Lois, Kristen Stewart has taken herself out of contention. The NY Daily News reports that Stewart declined to read because she wants to take on smaller projects. Translation: she’s tired of super-fans creeping outside her bedroom window.

Two names that didn’t appear on the casting list originally are Wonder Woman lookalikes Olivia Wilde and Mila Kunis. Makes sense to include them. Both are on career highs and tend to end up on every casting shortlist. So, let’s go ahead and add Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson to the list now so we don’t need to write about it later. After that, we eliminate all these ladies we can open it up to overseas. (via The Playlist)

    I’ve got a poll going on who should play Lois and Billy Zane is currently tied in the lead with Rachel McAdams.

    Olivia Wilde is the perfect Lois, with Mila Kunis as a runner up. But the more I think about it though, casting Lois Lane will depend on how modernized and how far are they going to delve into the Lois Lane character in the reboot. It is a secondary role but if the character is somewhat of a stretch from the tough and sassy, Margot Kidder/Lois Lane we all know, can the actresses from the short list pull it off? Will the character be complex? All I know is in Batman Begins, Katie Holmes was a terrible and forgettable love interest. I hope that I don’t say the same for Lois Lane in the reboot.

    Someone mentioned somewhere that if all else fails, they should just “cast a relatively unknown actor for Lois, then surround her and Cavill with a kick ass, strong cast of veterans.” I’m already thinking backup Plan B-list: a dyed brunette Kate Mara of 127 Hours, Odette Yustman (The Unborn) or Emmy Rossum. She needs a big break.
