Superman: shortlist of three for female lead role?

Who is in line to star opposite Henry Cavill in the new Superman movie? We’ve got the shortlist for the female lead right here…

Yesterday, we presented the 12 leading candidates to play Lois Lane in Zack Snyder's upcoming moving of Superman. The three who were your most popular from that list? It seemed to be Zooey Deschanel, Rachel McAdams, and Olivia Wilde.

However, while we were doing that, the shortlist for the female lead for the new Superman movie was being knocked into shape. However, Variety is reporting that this particular lead role isn't that of Lois Lane.

It's not exactly clear what the role is, but the three who are on the shortlist for it are Diane Kruger, Rosamund Pike and Alice Eve. Eve, you might remember, was strongly linked with Captain America, before that role went elsewhere.

The hunt is also on for the villain in the movie, too, but no names or details have been forthcoming on that yet.
