Default The Mystery Female Lead Casting Thread

so it's come to our attention that they're planning on possibly casting a blonde female who is supposed to be the lead for this movie, but is NOT Lois Lane...

First Class without Scott and Jean? I got over it.
Spider-Man without Mary-Jane or Harry Osborn? Upsetting, but I'll live. . .
Now, Superman without Lois Lane as the female lead?!? I just. . .
...this falls in line with this report that claims Lois Lane won't be an integral part of the story.

Looks like she will be in the movie, but won't have a big role.
here's another article that tries to make sense of it all.

A great, previously-spot-on contact at Warner Bros (granted, he’s not actually on that particular production) had told me earlier in the week that he’d heard such names as Kristen Stewart, Rachel McAdams, Jessica Biel and Dianna Agron had either met or were going to meet for the role of the female lead in Man of Steel. Since then there’s been several more contender announced. Latino Review even had solid word that Olivia Wilde was up for the role.
Now, according to the trades, Diane Kruger, Alice Eve and Rosamund Pike have emerged as the frontrunners for this role - a role, they add, is not Lois Lane.

First things first, I only assumed it was Lois Lane these girls were battling it out for. My guy just said ‘female lead’. I joined the dots myself…. wouldn’t you? Is there any other lead female in the Superman world? (Not Smallville world, but Superman world). Could it be that Lois isn’t in the movie? Sounds unlikely…

First things first, I just dropped rumored contender Kristina Anapau an email to see what she could tell me.

“I don’t know what I can tell you - you’re very warm…all of the names on your previous list were or are still in the running for this role last I heard. They’re swaying between big names and smaller names. I can’t tell you specifics of the role - I don’t know what I can say, sorry”.

So, Anapau wouldn’t say whether it was Lois either, but did confirm that her prospective competition did include McAdams, Stewart etc.

Just swapped an email with my contact and asked him which role they’re all going for.

He answers, “Haven’t read the script, don’t know”.

So that’s a dead-end.

As for whether or not there’s any truth to Variety’s claim that Pike, Eve and Kruger are the new frontrunners?

“Things are changing every day on that movie - things changed a lot when a British Superman was cast. What’s happening here is the filming location may be dictating the casting. Did you notice none of those girls you just mentioned are Americans? I don’t think it’s got as much to do with them not wanting to overshadow Superman, as that article suggests…

As for whether or not Kristen Stewart tested - which her reps say she didn’t.

“I don’t know if she tested, but they were interested in her at one point. It was common knowledge. I think the conversations went mute when Snow White was put on the table - you can’t be chasing two projects of that size at the same time.”

So, right now, here’s what we know :

- There’s a female lead up for grabs.
- A number of actresses, both known (Rachel McAdams, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Kristen Stewart) and unknown (Dianna Agron, Kristina Anapau) have tested/met about the film at one point over the past few weeks.
- The fact that a British actor has been cast as Superman, and further, that the movie mightn’t be filming in the U.S, is starting to dictate the casting of the female lead.

edit: LatinoReview is saying that the role of the character these woman are vying for is Ursa...

It's not a bird, it's not a plane, but it's a Superman scoop you want to read about.

Most recently the powers that be, aka the producers, of Zack Synder's take on Superman released to the trades the names of three actresses who are in contention to play a character who is "undisclosed" for the time being.

Auditioning through slides are British actress Alice Eve, German actress Diane Kruger and British actress Rosamund Pike. The trades also stated that these three are not vying for the part of Lois Lane.

There are many are speculating that Lois Lane will not be in the film, but as a buddy of mine recently said, "Superman without Lois Lane is like having Batman without Alfred."

While bloggers and fans have been scratching their heads trying to figure out which character Synder has them coming out for, LatinoReview has been alerted by a most trusted reliable source that two things are going to occur.

1: Lois Lane WILL be in the film.
2: The character these lovely actresses have come out for is no other than a Kryptonion villainess who is going by the name of URSA.

Now expect the powers that be to deny deny and deny. As Superman fans can recall the character URSA was in both "Superman: The Movie" and "Superman II" played by British actress Sarah Douglas.

This will lead many to wonder wether or not General Zod will be in the film as URSA, along with Zod, were two thirds of the criminals banished by Jor-El to the Phantom Zone.

Now Zack Synder has gone on record stating that General Zod will not be in the film, stating, “For now, it’s just a rumor.” But directors and screenwriters often make changes before shooting begins.

With production on the film beginning this summer with a late 2012 release date expect decisions to be made shortly regarding the principal cast.
If Ursa is in, Zod can't be too far behind.



DISCUSS!!!

I'd say they're casting for Maggie Sawyer.

the more i think about our theory the more i want it to be true. it would really give the mythos some much needed gravitas and provide some great emotionally dramatic scenes. it would also mean that they wouldn't have to sacrifice Pa Kent as the catalyst for Clark to decide to become Superman.

Let's hope that talentless, underwhelming woman has no relation to this movie

Is it possible she could be Mercy? Then again, I can't see Mercy getting a "lead" role.

Agree.

I love the idea. I thought Rachel was a good character in BB/TDK, Katie Homes just sucked. And I didn't get why Nolan didn't just pick anyone one from Batman's gallery of women over inventing a completely new one.

Could someone explain Mercy? Any relation to Mercy/Tess Mercer on Smallville?

actually...i'm wondering creating female leads for our heroes might be Goyer's doing. either way, if it's Nolan or Goyer, i didn't care too much for Rachel Dawes, but i'm really starting to love the idea of a new character's death to influence Clark to become Superman.

just edited my post to address that theory...


Quote:
it's possible that the role is for Lana Lang, but this movie seems to be dealing a lot with Clark's adventures in Africa, which wouldn't leave much room for his drama in Smallville. also, all the actresses who are mentioned are European and there are many European women that live and work in Africa.

I was joking about Lang, but I think you're right with the Africa bit. I haven't read Birthright, so I don't know what females were in that comic.

admittedly there weren't any other major female characters (just Lorna, Martha, and Lois) but that didn't prevent Goyer and Nolan from injecting Rachel Dawes into a loose adaptation of Batman: Year One.




either way, unless you don't want to be potentially spoiled, i'd definitely suggest giving it a read. it's not perfect, but it has a lot of great insight into how Superman should be handled in a contemporary setting.
