    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...

    ...this falls in line with this report that claims Lois Lane won't be an integral part of the story.

    here's another article that tries to make sense of it all.





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

    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.

    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.

    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.
