The Top 5 Choices to Play Lois Lane


The new Superman movie has a director (Zack Snyder) and a leading man (Henry Cavill). Now, it needs a leading lady.

With news of Kristen Stewart being on the shortlist of actresses for the Lois Lane, I present my list of favorites in the hopes some studio exec will see this — therefore rejecting the idea of casting the “Twilight” actress as the iconic character (not that I believe for a second that Snyder would risk alienating a fanbase with such a choice).

Here are five better choices …

Emily Blunt

I’ve liked Emily since “The Devil Wears Prada.” She has this no-nonsense style of acting, and yet at the same time she exhibits this veiled vulnerability.

Evangeline Lilly

She’s cute and spunky. “Lost” fans loved her as Kate and her schedule is wide open. With no filming conflicts in sight, she could definitely sign on the dotted line.

Jessica Biel

If you’re looking for a tough Lois Lane, look no further than Miss Biel. In “Blade: Trinity,” she was the ultimate heroine.

Olivia Wilde

Because of “TRON: Legacy,” Wilde has become a fanboy favorite. Unfortunately, her schedule is quite crowded. There may not be room for Snyder’s Superman movie.

Rachel McAdams

McAdams has been well received since “Mean Girls” and “The Notebook.” As for portraying Clark Kent’s love interest, she certainly looks the part.

And for those who are looking for Erica Durance — with Tom Welling out of the picture, there is no shot for Durance to get the role, unfortunately. It’s obvious Snyder and Christopher Nolan are distancing themselves from “Smallville” since they chose Henry Cavill.

    I like all of your picks! I think my favorite would be Emily Blunt. I can see her playing both the tough and vulnerable sides of Lois very well. Rachel McAdams would be great too for the same reason.

    My first choice was Anne Hathaway, but she’s obviously out. But I will say that my excitement for the movie has dampened considerably with the selection of Cavill as Superman. Now the choice of who will play Lois Lane seems so much less important to me than it did just a week ago.
