Malin Akerman, Dianna Agron, Mary Elizabeth Winstead Also Mentioned With one of the big casting questions of 2011 answered on Sunday, with the announcement that "The Tudors" veteran Henry Cavill will be playing Clark Kent/Superman in Zack Snyder's reboot of the iconic hero, questions immediately turn to who will be joining the British actor in the film, and specifically, who will play the Man Of Steel's better half, spunky reporter Lois Lane.

At their most positive, they can show the kind of crusading, truth-seeking journalists that the embittered hacks wanted to be when they started out (as Aaron Sorkin recently said, "'All The President's Men' made journalists want to be rockstars"), and at their most negative, they provide a certain catharsis.

With Terrence Malick hard at work on his next film starring Rachel McAdams, Ben Affleck, Rachel Weisz, Olga Kurylenko, Javier Bardem and Barry Pepper, details have, as usual with Malick, been completely under wraps. Aside from the casting, and set pictures revealing that Bardem and Pepper play priests in the film, little is known about the picture but has a French website spilled the beans on the title?
