Now that we know The Tudors‘ Henry Cavill will be playing the lead in director Zack Snider‘s Superman: Man of Steel the buzz began immediately with speculation about who would step in to play dedicated reporter Lois Lane in the franchise reboot due in theaters next year. While some outlets had Twilight‘s Kristen Stewart in talks for the lead — and even declining the role in favor of Universal’s dark take on Snow White — others cast a wider net with everyone from Olivia Wilde to Dianna Agron rumored to play the role made famous by Margot Kidder (opposite Christopher Reeve in the ’70s and ’80s big screen films).
While some are loyal to those who have years of experience playing the iconic journalist, like Teri Hatcher (who starred opposite Dean Cain in the ’90s ABC hit Lois and Clark, which ran for four seasons) and Erica Durance (who stars Tom Welling on Smallville, now airing its 10th and final season). Others would rather borrow the leading ladies of other franchises, casting Spider-Man‘s Emma Stone. So who would you pick?
Heather Hogan: Superman can reboot itself a hundred million badrillion times, big screen and small — but my heart will only ever have room for one Lois Lane.
Mia Jones: I’m going with Emma Stone. She’s young, hot, a natural blonde and can pull off the smart damsel in distress who could also save a man in distress thing. And I’ve been obsessed with her lately.
Aditi Hardikar: Yawnnn K-Stew. Zoe Saldana, please.
So who would you like to play Lois Lane?
