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!!!

While I agree with that for Rodriguez, I feel HBC and Kurylenko fit that mold as well.

Helena Bonham Carter is too old. Maybe she can play Faora's mother in a flashback scene.
This is ridiculous, she's only a couple of years older than Shannon and looks his age if not younger. Are we really going to get stupid about the age of the actress chosen for Faora as well? :whatever:

My issue with Helena is that I feel like she's just going to be Bellatrix or any various weird Tim Burton character in a Superman movie.

Now granted, she's a very good actress and she showed that she's capable of not playing the weirdo character in multiple films (most recently The King's Speech) but for some reason I just have this bad feeling that she'd revert back into her comfort oddball zone to play Faora/Ursa/Whoever.

I feel bad for Swank sometimes. She gets all that crap about looking like a dude because of some role. Honestly I think she looks fine and is a good actress. The internet has been so cruel to her

I think Swank is a good actress, but she seems to alternate between amazing performances (Boys Don't Cry, Million Dollar Baby) and horrible ones (Freedom Writers, The Reaping, Amelia). Still, if she was cast in this, I'd be happy with the choice.

Oh yah she has a little hit or miss syndrome. I'm just saying the insults she has to put up with are ridiculous. She is a decent looking woman, and the "man" comments are off place imo. People would make the same old joke, that she looks like a man because she resembles Damon. Well maybe Damon looks like a girl cause he resembles Swank. It's just kind of unfair and I guess it stems from an acting role. Going after her for that reason instead of respecting the craft is bs.

Helena Bonham Carter, who I think is great, doesn't really strike me as a great action star, someone who would pull off looking tough in martial arts fights etc. for the role. But there actually seems like quite a short list of potential female action stars for this, unfortunately.

She played a good action orangutan in Planet of the Apes. And a good action head in Terminator Salvation.

You can probably add The Resident to the list of horrible ones, though I have to say she is in incredible shape in that movie. She pretty much was either naked or half-naked throughout the whole movie (not really a bad thing). Physically she would be believable as Faora.

Antje Traue Villian Front Runner
Quote:
I'm told that German actress Antje Traue is the frontrunner to join Michael Shannon as the villainess of the Zack Snyder-directed Superman film Man of Steel. Since Shannon is playing General Zod, might Traue be playing his accomplice, Ursa, who appeared in the first two Superman films? Traue starred with Ben Foster and Dennis Quaid in Pandorum, and she is currently in Sweden shooting the Peter Flinth-directed Nobels Testament. Traue has been in the hunt for a big studio role. She tested for The Rite, which went to Alice Braga, and also met Marc Forster to play Brad Pitt's character's wife in World War Z, a role that went to The Killing star Mireille Enos. She is repped by Greene & Associates, Spielkind in Germany and UK's Troika.

I remember her from Pandorum. Not a bad actress, beautiful, and she can do the action scenes. I dig this choice.
