One of my fears for this Superman has been who would get cast as Lois Lane. After the mis-casting of Kate Bosworth in Brian Singer’s SUPERMAN RETURNS it’s a role that should not be underestimated and can make or break the story.

Adams has shown herself to be a phenominal actress capable of carrying off a variety of roles in both comedies and dramas along with a different look for each of them. It’s a great pick.

This announcement (I caught it on the LA TIMES site )This on top of the recent announcements of Diane Lane as Martha Kent and the blockbuster announcement of Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent have this project on one hell of a roll.

Other names that have surfaced in regards to the role included Kristen Stewart, Malin Akerman (who Synder worked with on WATCHMEN), Olivia Wilde, Rachel McAdams and Jessica Biel among others.

A lot of people still haven’t gotten to know Henry Cavill, who outside of the Showtime drama “The Tudors,” isn’t well known to film or television viewers. Actually, I saw a post that even suggested that Cavill was one of the finalists for the role that eventually went to Brandon Routh in Singer’s version. I think that is going to change as things ramp up and Zack Snyder starts talking more about the project and the people in it.

Next up for announcements: Villan or Villans. Rumors are going around town that the amazing Viggo Mortensen is circling this project.
