Yesterday folks were all up in arms after we posted what some are suggesting is the initial screen-test list for Lois Lane in Zack Snyder's upcoming 'Superman' movie. Right at the top of the list was Kristen Stewart, who many thought was just all sorts of wrong for the role of Superman's love interest. Well those fans will be happy to learn that K-Stew is officially out of the running, according to sources over at The Daily News. They claim Stewart went so far as to meet with Snyder and his producing partner / wife Deborah, but that the 'Twilight' actress ultimately decided to pass on the role because she wanted to take on more "smaller, independent films" instead.

The Daily News also claims Snyder "was left feeling slighted" because K-Stew "wasted his time," but that's probably complete nonsense since Snyder keeps it pretty cool and is definitely not one of those whiny, elitist directors.

Meanwhile, with Stewart out of the picture, the same group of ladies remain in the hunt (Jessica Biel, Dianna Agron, Rachel McAdams, Malin Akerman), while two more -- including Mila Kunis and Olivia Wilde -- have since been added to the list of actresses being considered. Olivia Wilde, hot off looking ridiculously hot in 'TRON: Legacy' would make for a perfect Lois Lane, and Latino Review claims she's already tested for the role. Could she be the current frontrunner?

We'd settle for either Wilde or McAdams -- what about you?
