    I think she was supposed to be but dropped out and then the role went to Hayley Atwell.

    No, Alice Eve was supposed to be Emma Frost in X-Men First class but dropped it to take a role in either the FF4 reboot or the upcoming Avengers movie.

    Ah right, I thought the girl in the Cap pics today didn't look as chestacular as Alice Eve.

    as i've stated a billion times...i'm 99% positive that some fool just saw animators working on pre-visuals (3d animated storyboards), assumed that they were working on final concepts and decided to shoot his mouth off without getting confirmation. there's a reason they're using Chris Reeve's likeness....because he's still considered the default Superman in many people's minds and Cavill hadn't been cast yet.

    LARA is a key blonde female lead in the Superman origins.


    I hope it's true. That would mean Krypton and Jor-El plays a huge part in the film.

    Diana Kruger and Alice Eve are great choices for Lara.

    I don't see why krypton/jor-el/lara would need to play a big role.

    yeah, i dont even like the idea of lara having a huge part. They send him to earth. done! get on with the story. the idea of spending any more than 5-10 minutes on krypton would annoy me

    Who cares what the role is, just sign Rosamund Pike up right away. She's a stunning woman and comfortably the best actress of the three.

    i dunno...if we are to believe the Kryptonians are a race that is technologically superior to us not only would that mean they have ways of defying age but that also means longer life spans. so they could actually be 60 years old but look half that age.

    even if they have they age the same way we do and have similar life spans, i'd say 30 is pretty ideal for having your first born...maybe even a bit younger.

    I think that the age defying part would make more sense. because Jor-el is supposed to be one of the planets brightest and well respected scientists and it would seem like an impossible status to achieve by 30. Then again, maybe being a young scientist is the reason why no one believed his theories of the world coming to an end

    I didn't realize this thread existed. I'll just quote what I said in the Lois thread since it's more appropriate here...

    It would be disappointing if this movie doesn't have Lois and Jimmy, but then again, Batman Begins had a disposable love interest and it was still great, and we are finally getting Batman's most iconic love in the third film so it's all good. I just hope that we don't have to wait as long to see Lois...

    I just hope the character doesn't suck like Rachel did.

    True, although at the same time I hope she's not someone we'll have become too attached to by the time Lois arrives. ;)

    Yeah, just need to find the good balance of having us care for her as a character, but not feeling too bad that he doesn't end up with her. I doubt she'll die, so that may help. Just two people maturely agreeing to move on.

    I always take those magazine comments with a grain of salt. They're probably trying out for the part, but not every casting is about a "lead" role. Snyder and Nolan have cast relatively big names for small parts - it is probable that whoever checked that list thought "wow, they are surely trying for the lead role".

    The could be Lara for all we know, appearing for 5-10 minutes in the film. Or a younger Martha Kent, or even older Martha Kent with prosthetics (hopefully not...)

    Lana Lang? Cat Grant? Mercy? Lori Lemaris?

    Well I'm stumped, surely Lois still has to be in this film. It could be that its very Batman Begins and it takes an hour for him to become Superman in the film.

    I wonder if the female lead this is will be (if Birthright rumours are true) a reporter friend in Africa, who knows maybe she'll die and thats what makes him decided to become Superman.
