Superman Female Lead Revealed?

Tons of speculation mixed with very little official word from Zack Snyder and Chris Nolan, and rumors will run rampant.

The latest in the rumor mill surrounding the Superman: Man of Steel film is that Alice Eve, Diane Kruger and Rosamund Pike are in contention for the female lead. But for what role?

According to LatinoReview.com the role in question is not for Lois Lane, or Cat Grant for that matter, although it’s been said that Lois Lane will have a rather meager part to play.

Apparently, the new lead role will be that of Kryptonian villainess Ursa. For those of you that don’t know who that is, she is one of the Phantom Zone inmates that is loyal to Zod.

Actress Sarah Douglas portrayed Ursa in both Superman, and Superman 2 starring Christopher Reeve.

What the hell is going on in the filmmaker’s mind? I only wish I knew.

Snyder has gone on record stating that Zod will NOT appear in the new film. But having Ursa minus Zod… um, that makes absolutely no sense. After all, Ursa has not appeared in comic form until like 2006 or something.

She was a character created solely for Richard Donner‘s Superman.

I’s confused… so not liking the direction this is going in, but we’ll keep ya posted as things develop.

What are your thoughts on Ursa being the female lead in Snyder’s Superman film? Sound off below!
