All the movie sites are going to keep up serving stories like this as long as we keep gobbling them up.
I was more excited that Lex Luthor was a role being sought, because we haven't been hearing much about whether he is actually in the movie.

Not that I think she'll be cast if there is, but I wonder if there is a role for a female character close to Lex. But would they do that Teschmacher/Kitty kind of character again? They already did it twice, and they are trying to move away from repeating themselves. But there could be someone who works for Lex and/or LexCorp, hopefully a more substantial role, like a Mercy Graves?

WB is trying to save Superman from oblivion, how do you guys even entertain the idea of Lindsay Lohan being in this film?

There is no real proof that she is up for any role in this movie and anybody can want a role in any film, that doesn't mean that they are going to get it.

That was Pamela Stephenson as Lorelei Ambrosia in Superman III. (Enough Donnerverse!)

Of course Lohan isn't getting a role. Lobbying for casting for this would be pretty full on at the moment.

RadarOnline is a gossip rag news site. I wouldn't believe anything they print without a second source. Lohan is well known for inserting herself into stories to stay in the news anyway. She tested with an actor who has no experience? Said actor has head shots from a cell phone camera? He's supposedly up for the role of Lex Luthor? Riiiiiiiiight.

I'd be ok with shannon in the role, but i'll be honest, i'd rather have a big name for Lex. Someone like DDL, Depp, or Mortensen.

I don't see why a bigger name is necessary if Shannon is more suitable. Plus, he is an Oscar-nominated actor with a lot of respect. Being in the Superman movie will make him a big name, the way those other actors got a big movie to make themselves a big name. Should Viggo not have been Aragorn because he wasn't a big name? That movie is what took him to another level.

Agree 100%... I care more about an awesome performance than just getting a big name. If Jon Hamm went in and did a kick ass screentest... he should get it. Don't hold out for a "big name" just for the sake of it.
