Rumor: Kristen Stewart and Jessica Biel Up for Lois Lane Role in Superman Reboot


 

As well as being rumoured to play Snow White, Twilight star Kristen Stewart is apparently taking on Jessica Biel for the role of Lois Lane in the upcoming Superman reboot.

Following the announcement that Tudors star, Henry Cavill, has been cast as the man of steel in the uhhh... Man of Steel movie, Warner Bros. are now casting around for their female lead, with Stewart and Biel (Blade: Trinity) on the top of their list, with Rachel McAdams (Sherlock Holmes), Malin Ackerman (Watchmen) and Dianna Agron (Glee) also up for consideration.

Man of Steel is shaping up to be an interesting return for Clark Kent's alter-ego, following Bryan Singer's disappointing Superman Returns back in 2006. Christopher Nolan is onboard and eager to push the franchise towards darker territory, in the mould of his ultra-successful Batman movie, The Dark Knight.
