'Superman' To Be Totally CGI?



Update: Reps for Kristen Stewart have told People, There are a number of fabricated stories circulating. The fact is that she has not met on this film nor has she been approached for this film."

With Henry Cavill officially cast as Clark Kent in Zack Snyder's forthcoming "Superman," rumors are now flying fast and furious for who will play Lois Lane. Just yesterday reports surfaced that Malin Akerman, Dianna Agron, Jessica Biel, Rachel McAdams and Kristen Stewart have read or been asked to read for the part. Well, you can now scratch one name from that list and add a couple more.

The NYDaily News reports that Stewart did meet with Zack Snyder and his wife and producer Deborah Snyder to discuss the part of Lois Lane, but that things didn't get very far. Not quite ready to once again face the exposure and media scrutiny the "Twilight" films have thrust upon her, Stewart apparently declined an opportunity to read for the role, with reps for the actress cagily stating she "did not read for the part." According to the paper's source, Snyder was miffed that Stewart used up his precious time for a meeting only to politely decline but a) we don't buy that Snyder is upset -- he's got his pick of hot, young actresses to choose from (more on that in a second) and b) it smells like some unnecessary pot-stirring. Stewart has moved on, smartly choosing to focus on lower key films and indie fare, and Snyder apparently has a couple more beauties he'll be talking to.

The NYDailyNews has casually mentioned Mila Kunis -- a name we haven't heard tossed around yet -- as another potential contender for the part of Lois Lane, while Latino Review have revealed that Olivia Wilde has already tested for the part. The potential roadblock to her landing the gig might be her commitment to the crime thriller "Kin" with Eric Bana, but apparently that production is willing to be pushed to accommodate Wilde if she lands Lois Lane in "Superman." This surely won't be the last of the casting rumors, so expect more names to crop up in the coming days and weeks. We can't say we're too surprised that Kunis and Wilde are in the mix -- they are two fanboy faves who recently have proven they can hold their own on screen in "Black Swan" and "Tron: Legacy," respectively.

And if that's not enough rumor mill stuff for you, Cinematical quietly dropped that they're been hearing that Henry Cavill may never even wear the iconic superhero costume, as Superman may be an all-CGI creation "that looks sorta like Christopher Reeve." It's not an idea that's unheard of -- Ryan Reynolds' suit for "Green Lantern" is going to be purely pixels -- but given that reception for that suit has been very, very cool (at best) we're not sure that's the best idea. And if Christopher Nolan really is putting his producing powers into the film, we don't see him giving the thumbs up to a computer generated costume and/or character, particularly given his penchant to anchor the world of Bruce Wayne into something as close to reality as possible. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

"Superman" is gearing up to shoot later this year and will hit theaters in winter 2012.
