We still don't know in which direction the new 'Superman' movie will head, with the exception of the fact that Henry Cavill will be playing Clark Kent / Superman. We've heard the film may follow Clark Kent as he travels the world as a journalist, trying to come to terms with his powers and whether he belongs in this world. We've also heard that Cavill may not be in the Superman suit at all, that folks behind the scenes have been testing an all-C.G. Superman that looks sorta like Christopher Reeve.

We've also heard buzz that Lois Lane won't be an integral part of the film. However, according to What's Playing, several ladies are currently being looked at for the role of Superman's main squeeze. Among the actresses mentioned (and we expect one of the trades to follow up on this once it spreads), we have Kristen Stewart, Jessica Biel, Malin Ackerman, Rachel McAdams and 'Glee' star Dianna Agron. Other names lingering around in Early Buzz World include Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Kristen Bell.

Considering Cavill isn't the biggest name, we expect Warner Bros. to populate the rest of the cast with more well-known actors and actresses, like Marvel did with 'Thor.' As far as this initial list goes, Warner has a big-budget/geeky history with McAdams ('Sherlock Holmes') and Ackerman ('Watchmen'), so we assume those two could be front-runners.

Any thoughts on who you'd like to see play Lois Lane in Zack Snyder's 'Superman' movie?
