Now that the new Man of Steel has been minted by Bryan Singer, one of the remaining casting mysteries for the new SUPERMAN
film is: who will play Lois Lane?
This new scooper claims to know who it's down to and told us the six actresses that are supposedly on the callback list. We know the ID of our scooper and they also told us where (in a roundabout fashion) that they heard this info from and they claim it comes from a reliable contact of theirs. Three of the names mentioned on the list have been referred to on other websites, so perhaps the scooper is also tapped into the same source that these other reports are originating from. For now, take it with a grain of salt as we don't have a prior history with our new pal -- but if it turns out that the new Lois does indeed comes from this list, then we've got a new contact that has earned our trust.
According to the scooper, these six actresses are presently frontrunners for the part of Lois Lane in SUPERMAN
. In alphabetical order they are:
Mischa Barton (THE O.C.
Charisma Carpenter (ANGEL
Mia Kirshner (THE CROW: CITY OF ANGELS
Evangeline Lilly (LOST
Natalie Portman (STAR WARS: ATTACK OF THE CLONES
Keri Russell (FELICITY
We've seen three of the actresses mentioned before. Barton and Portman have been both linked as being a possible Lois for a number of months now, and two days ago the movie website JoBlo.com was the first to report
Evangeline Lilly as another candidate. That site's source also told them that Singer had narrowed the short list down to four names, two less than what we were told it stands at.
Let's see where it goes from here.
