Maybe it's got something to do with her mutant eyes.

Wow, no clue here who it could be, but my first thought was Mercy Graves.

Maybe she's like the female Scott Porter. Always connected in some way to a comic character.

Has Lara been suggested yet? Maybe there's a bigger focus on Krypton in the early part of the movie and that Jor-El and Lara have larger roles than before?
If Clark is a more proactive character, more well-rounded, then I don't see a problem with him having a real relationship. If it is just Lois, then we might get what we got in Superman Returns- Clark spending most of the movie pining after Lois from a distance.

From info., I don't think Krypton, Lara and Jor-El will be portrayed, because of the lawsuit.

One way of making the female lead not a LI for Superman, would be to make her his mother. But how big a role does she really have, and how expandable is it? And is it likely they would use someone as young (hot) as Pike, Kruger or Eve to play Henry/Superman's mother?

IT could be a confusion.

Deadline and Hollywood Reporter both never mentioned Catwoman when they listed the contentors for The Dark Knight Rises. In fact, deadline (or was it Hollywood Reporter) said it MIGHT be Talia and Vicki Vale according to their source.

My point being is that Lois might be in. I don't see why she wouldn't be.

why do people keep thinking that just because there's possibly another love interest that Lois Lane isn't gonna be in the movie. are people really that black and white?

well, if it's not Lois, then I can see Lana being the female lead.

which would then make this most likely an origin/early days type of story.........

hopefully, the article doesn't mean Lois is not in the movie.

I could see it like this:

"I guess they could use Lara first then second half of the movie Lois shows up."

Why else would a woman be in this film? You're either the female lead aka love interest or a mother figure.

Ooh, what if during one of Clark's worldly travels, he saves a certain blond woman from a sniper's bullet or rescues her from a dictator's capture and brings her back to America only to find out that she wasn't a damsel in distress but a mercenary hired to take out the dictator. Then, later in the film she gets employed by Lex?

I was joking. But, on a more serious note, "female lead" roles tend to be fairly limiting with these types of films. And when people see that, they tend to think if there is any focus on a female, it'll be on that one love interest or as Derek pointed out, there could be a love triangle.

So, if the character is the female Superman is most associated with isn't the female lead, they jump to the conclusion that she isn't in the film at all. Or possibly, very little.

I could honestly see it being a love triangle...he honest to goodness love Lana, but when he meets Lois something spark inside him that he's never felt before...

Just remember folks this is a rumour, a few days ago we got a rumoure shortlist for Lois imagine if the rumours were swapped around and the Lois rumour popped up after the no Lois rumour we'd all be saying thank god. We should really not panic until we receive confirmation.

just like how no lex doesn't "sound" like a good idea.
I'm personally hoping for something new out of the movie.
If lois is involved, let me guess he saves her from some plight she manages to get herself into...meh.


anyways these three names are great, it's obviously for Lara (jor)El
and each would bring something different but awesome to the character.
