Rumor: Malin Akerman Up For Lois Lane?

Just something through the grapevine for now, but word is that the Watchmen star might be in the running, or at least auditioning for the role of Lois Lane in Zack Snyder's Superman reboot..

You knew it was gonna happen! Superman is cast so we move on to Lois. Expect many casting rumors over the next while, here is the first of em.



Word is that Malin Akerman(Silk Spectre in Watchmen) may be "connected" to the role. The origin of the rumor seems to be hard to pinpoint at the moment but I managed to get a quote from a PR agency who say..

Something a client heard on the grapevine. Could just mean she auditioned. Not surprising, she was in Watchmen.


Pretty sketchy! Still, I agree that having worked with her before Snyder would be likely to at least see Akerman for an audition. Matthew Goode was close to nabbing the Superman role after all so you never know. Do you guys think she could make a good Lois Lane?

marvel72 - 1/31/2011, 5:44 AM
good choice,sexy little lois.
JoshWilding - 1/31/2011, 5:57 AM
Makes sense that Snyder would look at an actress he's worked with in the past...I like Akerman and would be ok with this. Great work ROR! :)

I wouldn't mind her being cast as Lois Lane, but my vote goes to Olivia Wilde.
longbowhunter - 1/31/2011, 6:24 AM
I've liked everything I've seen her in.
GrimeKid - 1/31/2011, 6:26 AM
I hate to say it, but she's sort of boring & i'm not sure I can see her as Lois.
Saying that, I only really care about Superman so I don't care if Lois isn't even in this film

I don't read the comics so can anyone tell me, is there another love interest of Clark's? or has Lois been the only one all this time?
flames809 - 1/31/2011, 6:37 AM
no! her boobs r to small for the Lois part. and also she bored in watchmen well the whole movie bored me what am i saying he better not pull another watchmen movie and i mean make superman reboot wack.

grime- Lana in high school.

Just one thing to say:
RorMachine - 1/31/2011, 6:53 AM
Butler is Scottish:)

Not bad, though the complains have been told up there (I don't really concern nationality though)!

Maybe Snyder learns from Nolan to use actors that he has worked with before?
Rodimus9 - 1/31/2011, 7:02 AM
Article fail.


FYM ;-)
Xandera - 1/31/2011, 7:04 AM
That could work...
Angelus - 1/31/2011, 7:08 AM
Zooey Deschanel is Lois Lane. If not her then Lizzy Caplan or Rachel McAdams! Malin Akerman is too eggheaded. Her head disturbed me through Watchmen. She's simply an egghead, but less than Kate Bosworth. I really hope this is a stupid rumour!

True contestants:

Yummmmmmmmy Lois.
AlexDeLarge87 - 1/31/2011, 7:12 AM
She is great, but my vote goes to

Olivia Wilde, Evangeline Lilly or Odette Yustman


Jason Isaacs, Patrick Wilson or Michael Fassbender is Lex Luthor


And Paul Bettany is Brainiac
WorldsGreatestdetective - 1/31/2011, 7:13 AM
She was the weak link in Watchmen, I don't want her. There are much better actresses then her
Daniellantern - 1/31/2011, 7:14 AM
Hmm.. i think i agree about this one. but still hope for olivia wilde..
flames809 - 1/31/2011, 7:16 AM
tea- lol
rsalas - 1/31/2011, 7:17 AM
She's not bad, but I would like to see Wilde in that role.
Ivan - 1/31/2011, 7:18 AM
You want a Lois with personality, spunk and who's also a looker. Akerman is great-looking but lacks the sassiness. Two words: Emily Blunt. Best choice.
rsalas - 1/31/2011, 7:21 AM
I also like Rachel McAdams. Check her out in State of Play, not a bad movie and she plays a reporter.
AlReg - 1/31/2011, 7:22 AM
I was thinking of Laura Mennell who played Janey in Watchmen.
ManofSteel22 - 1/31/2011, 7:27 AM
Zooey deschannel :)
bubba27 - 1/31/2011, 7:33 AM
Zooey Deschanel is my choice besides Malin Ackerman is a horrible actress
AC1 - 1/31/2011, 7:33 AM
Wouldn't mind her if she dyed her hair darker (About time we had a hot lois in a Superman movie) but I'd prefer it to go to Olivia Wilde or my personal favourite Rachel McAdams
Angelus - 1/31/2011, 7:36 AM
@TheGODDAMNSUPERGUY - Ugly..? Aahahahahahahahaha! You're such a silly pants! =)
TheGreatone0207 - 1/31/2011, 7:47 AM
Lois has to hot, but she has to be a good actress. I say Racheal McAdams isn't bad.
AlexDeLarge87 - 1/31/2011, 7:53 AM
TheGODDAMNSUPERGUY@ Thanks. Yeah Lilly is my favorite too.

Pruitt Taylor Vince (Captivity, Identity, The Legend of 1900) is my choice as Rudy Jones aka Parasite. He is great actor and this role is made for him.


As for Metallo, Fassbender would be great if he doesnt get Luthor´s role.
bubba27 - 1/31/2011, 7:57 AM
I'd also be very happy with Rachel McAdams but Im not gonna hold my breath on that one
AlexDeLarge87 - 1/31/2011, 8:03 AM
TGS@ Yeah why not?! Great actor and can play assholes very well!:) Like The Town shows.
Havok89 - 1/31/2011, 8:11 AM
Jon Hamm - Lex
Brainiac - [frick] it...Hugo Weaving
Metallo - Ewan McGregor
Lois Lane - Olivia Wilde
LocoLobo1127 - 1/31/2011, 8:13 AM
Lois ----- Evangaline Lilly
Lex ----- Jason Issiacs
Zod ----Manganiello
Perry White ------ martin Sheen
RyKnow - 1/31/2011, 8:14 AM
If this happens, it'll be yet another potentially crushing blow to an already doomed film.

@ AlexdeLarge666 - Agreed, Odette Yustman all the way.
ThePencilNeck - 1/31/2011, 8:24 AM
Not really a big Ackerman fan.

I've never really liked any of the actresses they've chosen for Lois... except for Erica Durance.

I wouldn't mind Olivia Wilde but there's got to be better actresses who are smoking hot who could play Lois.
BatLantern - 1/31/2011, 8:27 AM
NO. SHES THE WORST!! Just what we need another 8-headed Lois.
McFly13 - 1/31/2011, 8:28 AM
I hope this is true.. I LOVE Malin Akerman!
Betty - 1/31/2011, 8:30 AM
I hate that Zoe bitch!
commanderhulk - 1/31/2011, 8:30 AM
Zooey Deschanel is the perfect Lois Lane. Lois is supposed to be smart, beautiful, and tough and Zooey Deschanel is all of thoses things. Zooey is a great actress and has great potential and the perfect Lois. You need someone beautiful enough that you'd believe Superman would fall for.

Akerman isn't that good of an actress and I really don't think she fits Lois, neither does Oliva Wilde.
AlexDeLarge87 - 1/31/2011, 8:34 AM
RyKnow@ Yeah she would be good choice.
JYCowboy - 1/31/2011, 8:39 AM
If you have to go with a name, Olivia Wilde channeling Erica Durance would do. I am not a Smallville fan but Durance has come as close to the comic Lois that I have ever seen, barring the dialog for the show. What it really boils down to is if Henry and the chosen Lois have chemisty.
