Kristen Stewart rumored for the Lois Lane role in the Superman reboot


Because much like Snow White, Lois Lane is known for being an angsty, lip-biting, eye-rolling, mouth-breathing, bad-postured, monotone bitch? Right? Anyway, the gossip going around Nerd Headquarters (IDLITW via Comic Book Movie) is that Kristen Stewart has read for the part of Lois Lane in Zac Snyder’s Superman reboot (starring British heartthrob Henry Cavill as Superman). Now, people are just claiming that Kristen READ for the part, meaning that she got called in for an audition and met with producers. There’s nothing about an OFFER and no mention of producers wanting her for the role.

Now, I just have a few points and questions. First of all, of course I’ll believe that Kristen came in to read. She’s one of the “biggest” young actresses out there, despite her bad attitude and unprofessionalism and despite the fact that she’s really not that talented. I would imagine that producers are having lots of younger actresses read for the Lois Lane part – I could even see Blake Lively getting that call (ha!). But I seriously doubt Kristen would end up being offered the part, and even if she was offered it, I can’t see her taking it. As much as it pains me to say this, Kristen is too “big” to take the Lois Lane part. She’s the lead in one of the most popular and lucrative franchises of all time. She’s not going to take a supporting part in another potential franchise. That’s another reason, by the way: Kristen probably has no interest in doing another franchise. She can barely stand the one she’s in now.

And finally, I think Kristen won’t end up with the role because they’ll want someone slightly older and more mature. Henry Cavill is 27 – they should be aiming for mid-twenties, someone beautiful and smart. My dream casting would be someone like 24-year-old Leighton Meester or 27-year old Mila Kunis. Right?

    Mila Kunis would be great. KS is a HELL NO, unless the script calls for Lois to stand there with a blank stare, mouth hanging open. Then KS would be perfect!

  2. Ari says:

    GOD NO

  3. Vi says:

    i couldn’t care less about superman or KS but i do agree that she wouldn’t take the role if she was offered it. she wants to be a serious actress and it’s obvious she thinks twilight is beneath her so she’d probably feel the same about any franchise.

  4. brin says:

    Definitely wrong for Loise Lane (maybe she could play Lex Luther).

  5. normades says:

    NO!!!!! You only get 1 big franchise role. She can’t be Bella and Lois. And she’s not pretty enough for Cavill.

    I second Mila!

  6. WYIJM says:

    Mila Kunis is too good for this!

  7. Siren6 says:

    Ooh Mila Kunis! What can we do to make that happen?

  8. guesty says:

    She looks like a Lois Lane imo. Very Margot Kidder.

  9. JuliaGuglia says:

    Dear god, not her for Lois! I kind of love Lois…

  10. embertine says:

    She can’t possibly be worse than Blandness McRexia from the last one.

  11. Sarcasm says:

    So Lois, an acclaimed journalist in the comic, will now stutter, eye roll and won’t be able to string a sentence together without heavy breathing pauses and touching her hair?

    She would take any offer she got now, considering that she has no future projects. She thinks she’s above Twilight but still took the part and takes the 25 Mil. while calling the fans retards.

  12. wow....really? says:

    Yeah, I’m gonna vote no. But—and this is a really little BUT-she’s a better choice than Bosworth was in that last Superman film.

  13. anti says:

    love that photo of her staring at her own bangs. jeez!

  14. Cherry Rose says:

    Urgh, everytime I see Kristen’s face, I just want to smack it.

    *tries hard to not smack computer screen*

  15. Rene says:

    Why do you hate her so much? JEEZ. Again you chose the absolute worst pictures to manipulate people’s impression of her

    This is just a stupid rumor. They also said Jessica Biel read for it are you going to have a hateful post about every casting rumor that ever happens??? Its NOT news. You’re obsessed with this girl. Twilight sucks for the script, not her. Grow up. This lois thing sounds like Bull but I believe the snow white one is possible

  16. Why'? says:

    Is she not capable to look normal at least once?

    The arrogance in her expressions is unbearable.Ughh.

  17. munchies says:

    i hope this will be just forever rumor and never be reality and she will wait for the role – endlessly.

  18. Jen says:

    Saw “Wonderland” a few years ago — great little indie film, despite KS. She always looks the same and “acts” the same. Nothing special to see.

    What pisses me off about KS:
    Something like 5% of ALL actors actually make a living at their craft. This smug little twit gets to do what she loves and doesn’t have to supplement her income by working a part time job at the mall & she can’t be grateful to those who plunk down $10 to see her “art”? Think about it Krisin, for some people, that represents an hour’s work! So someone works for an hour, just to come and see your movie and help your career but they are a “retard” to you?

    She isn’t the tiniest bit grateful to her fans and doesn’t see her success as a blessing.

  19. Mari says:

    That girl has ZERO muscle tone. She’s skinny fat. There, I said it.

  20. mia girl says:

    Kaiser – I would never want to be on your bad side… Kristen Stweart cleary is and boy, you really know how to pick her worst pictures.

  21. Why'? says:

    All of her photos look like this.

  22. Anonymous says:

    If they doll her up she’ll be a step up from Margot Kidder

  23. almond says:

    Is her name going to be trotted out for every big upcoming franchise?
    She’s bland and one-note. She’s going to stick in her niche: angst-ridden young woman who’s trying to deal with her issues.

  24. Jover says:

    No, No, No, no one will replace Margot Kidder.

  25. gabs says:

    She called the twi-hards that visited the set while they are filming twilight retards (which they are) once and apologized. She never called ALL fans or people who see the movies retards. Get over it people. If they visit a movie set, they are losers. sorry. dont blame her for letting that slip out once

    She does have better pictures. Im just saying, Kaiser really hates this girl for some reason because shes not as bad as the posts on CB make her sound or look

    She would be a bad choice for Lois lane( though anyone would be better than Bosworth from last time ) , I think its a stupid internet rumor that you guys just grabbed on to because you are obsessed with her. I read somewhere that Rachel McAdams was being considered. I can see that. Just not Anne Hathaway or Natalie Portman. They are in everything! So overexposed.

  26. ycnan says:

    I can see it, I think she would be good. But I agree she won’t take it as she would not want to be in another big budget franchise movie.

  27. Boat says:

    Ugh, she is no Lois Lane.

  28. Lane says:

    We get that you dislike her which is fine but no one has ever said she is unprofessional. Is she a bitch? yes but unprofessional no.

    Come on Kaiser being a bitch doesn’t make you unprofessional. You’re a bitch and manage to do your work just fine.

  29. hairball says:

    Actually the Twilight movies suck because of many reasons, INCLUDING Kristen Stewart’s acting. She cannot act – like literally acts exactly the same in EVERY role.

    I read an interview of her (maybe here??) where she said the director of Breaking Dawn kept telling her to ‘sex it up’ more for Bella to seduce Edward. She herself, said, “I just can’t”.

    ?? Uh….ok, then don’t be an actor if you can’t do what is emotionally needed for a role.

  30. Gwen says:

    Argh no, she’s all wrong for Lois!

    However – since it’s not Kate Bosworth again, I’ll be happy 😀

  31. Stephanie says:

    Hollywood needs to stop shoving these actors down our throats. Just because these kids act in movies w crazy followers does NOT mean that they should be cast in role after role! Kristen could barely do indie movies, she is NOT talented (enough?) to take on major/iconic roles. Ick.

  32. Ivy says:

    How in the world does this girl keep getting work?!?! She is a one note bowl of tapioca.

  33. perry says:

    Those people she call retards are paying her 25 Mil paycheck. The least she owes them is a picture to take.
    She has no problem to ask them over twitter to support her other films.

    She is a hypocrite and is hated on sets of her films.

  34. gabs says:

    @ hairball

    “like literally acts exactly the same in EVERY role.”

    ooooohh so you’ve seen ALL her movies? like literally all her movies?

    A lot of you sound like a hater who doesn’t realize they are really a fan because they can’t stop talking/analyzing that celeb. Just like Kaiser. I agree whole-heartedly that she isn’t right for Lois Lane AT ALL but some of you people are so harsh and specific that it sounds like you cant get enough of her. There are worse people to hate and this lois lane thing is not gonna happen. Just another lame started on the internet rumor.

  35. hayleej says:

    Ivy: her parents work in Hollywood and thanks to their connections she gets parts.

    But people are seeing how Godawful she is and hopefully we won’t be tortured with her presence in 2 years.

  36. mia girl says:

    @hayleej – My understanding is that her dad is the stage manager for the George Lopez show or some other TV show and her mom is a script supervisor. While that may have opened a door initially, these two hardly seem like Hollywood power players who can keep getting her parts.

    Truth is, directors love her and want to work with her, and at this point, studios think they can capitalize on her fame. It may baffle many of those posting, but that is why she keeps getting offered roles and/or why her name comes up so often.

  37. hayleej says:

    Of course directors love her, look how great the films are in which she plays.LMAO
    Always a slut or a foulmouthed depressed teen. Sean Penn hired her at the age of 15 to pose in her underwear and roll her eyes dozens of times and that’s called great acting.

  38. Jess says:

    This is her quote from 2008. She thinks auditioning is irrelevant since she is a genius who shouldn’t be forced to it.
    What you’re doing is so absurd unless you’re completely in an environment that seems believable. To fully commit to playing a different person in a room, with someone videotaping you, it’s hard to do unless you’re a performer. I had to read Shakespeare once. I went in saying “I can’t do this, I’ve never done this before, I’m just going to try to make this as real as I can.” I read it, and I thought it was great, and afterwards they said “Do you know what you’re saying?” I was like “Yeah!” (rolling eyes). “You’re never going to like me, I’m just gonna leave. We’re not going to click.” Auditions are heinous. Auditions are really awful. Even when they’re good, it’s like – “can’t we just bypass this and have a conversation and get to the thing? Just trust me, I can do it.”

    Delusional much?

  39. bluhare says:

    The reason some think she’s unprofessional is she bites the hand that feeds her. And apparently it’s OK to dis some of your fans if they have the gall to actually want to see what you do up close and personal.

    THAT’s why she’s called unprofessional. The least she could do is not dis her own fans whether she personally thinks they’re nut jobs or not.

    Notice I haven’t even mentioned the whining about how awful her life is.

  40. phlyfiremama says:

    I don’t understand the KStew hate, I truly love her. She is an amazing actress, just watch “The Runaways” with her as Joan Jett. Absolutely no Bella there. She seems to be unschooled in and unwilling to play with media manipulation, which I personally find very refreshing-I LIKE that everything isn’t filtered thru this PR circus others surround themselves with. Time will tell. As Lois Lane? I don’t think so, I think they need someone late 20’s/early 30’s for that role. KStew is only-what, 20? 21?

  41. Stephanie says:

    “Because much like Snow White, Lois Lane is known for being an angsty, lip-biting, eye-rolling, mouth-breathing, bad-postured, monotone bitch? Right?” LMAO, Kaiser!!!!

    Mila would be great for this role.

  42. My Darling Pinkett says:

    Yes, yet another movie she would ruin. I doubt she would take it even if she was offered the part, which she probably won’t be.

    And just a note to the folks who criticize Kaiser for the photos of KStew; did you ever consider the fact that she looks like this in 95% of her pictures? It is rare to see a pic of her in which she doesn’t appear miserable, uncomfortable, bored, angry, arrogant, or drugged.

    And Mila Kunis and Leighton Meester=<3 It’ll be interesting to see who they cast. Kate Bosworth was a mistake last time. Heck, cast Erica Durance!

  43. Someone Else says:

    Mila Kunis for Snow White. Kristen as Lois.

  44. Mercedes says:

    I read somewhere that Stephenie Meyer wanted Henry Cavill to play the part of Edward Cullen but ended up going to Rob Pattinson because Henry was too old to play the part of a 17-year old when Twilight the movie finally went forward. Too bad, I’d take Henry over Robert anyday! *swoon*. I hope to GOD that Kristen Stewart is not a contender for Lois Lane. She can’t act. I saw her in “Panic Room” and “The Runaways” and have no idea why she was picked unless the producers wanted someone with less than mediocre acting skills so as not to outshine they co-stars?
    Henry Cavill *swoon*, he was one of the main reasons why I had my eyeballs glued to the TV whenever “The Tudors” was on. Mila Kunis would be a great Lois Lane…or even Malin Ackerman. Women who show signs of intelligent in the eye, not a blanked out stare like Kristen has!

  45. hairball says:

    @gabs: “ooooohh so you’ve seen ALL her movies? like literally all her movies?”

    You still have yet to convince myself or anyone how she is actually a good actress?

    Retorting like a 12 year old with nothing to back up your argument doesn’t get your point across.

  46. Cherry Rose says:

    @ phlyfiremama – I saw The Runaways and Dakota Fanning was the only reason I made it through the entire movie. Kristen Stewart was terrible in that movie. Absolutely flat the whole way through. I can’t believe Joan Jett wasn’t pissed at how Kristen portrayed her.

    Kristen needs to put her big girl panties on and learn to deal with Hollywood or leave. There are plenty of talented actresses out there who would absolutely love to have her spot and would act a lot more grateful for it.

  47. hairball says:

    @Cherry Rose: I saw The Runaways too and I totally thought the same thing. Just bizarre that she thinks she is ‘acting’.

  48. Mia says:

    Ugh. Hell no! She’s only marginally better than Bosworth. She would stutter and bat her lashes and bite her nails and make me want to claw her eyes out as Lois.

    Mila Kunis would be perfect!

  49. serena says:

    Whaaat? Another superman movie or, worst, series? AGAIN??

  50. Ash says:

    Leighton Meester!

  51. Angel says:

    @rene, srsly! everything you said. I’m starting to feel major secondhand-embarrassment for the whole thing, personally.

    And @Darling Pinkett: Just tested your theory by Googling Kristen Stewart and looking at the images that immediately come up. You’re wrong. Try it and see FOR YOURSELF, how about?

  52. almond says:

    Mila Kunis would be great, I think. I can totally see her as a determined, spunky journalist.

    @gabs I saw twilight first, where I thought she was an incoherent mess, then I saw Speak where she gave her best performance and then I saw Adventurland where she did a more badass version of the same chick in Twilight: stuttering, hair-flipping, power-exhaling, head-shaking and lip-bitting mess.

    Oh, did I forget the excessive blinking? And I became morbidly curious with her specific, one-note-fits-all type of acting. I wanted to see if she really did it in every single role. And she does. So, sorry for being well-informed. You definitely outed me as a closeted fan.

  53. Camille says:

    I love Mila Kunis but I think Leighton Meester would be perfect for the role.

    Anyone would be better than Kate Bosworth though! *shudder*.

  54. Kim says:

    I really cant stand this girl. She cant act and has a terrible personality. Physically i could see her playing the part but I hope they pick someone else simply because she just isnt a good actress. There are so many better actresses suited for that role that CAN act: Anne Hathaway, Mila Kunis, even Jessica Biel maybe.

  55. Becca says:

    God! Stop making Superman movies! LAME. And that first pic of KS is hilarious!!

  56. Patty says:

    I do agree she is a bit bland inthe twilight movies but she does have some kind of appeal to her. Give her a break she is only 21, althought she is superdilly rich who knows what the pressure are?

  57. mimi says:

    Would LOVE to see Leighton as Lois!!!!!

  58. albeli says:

    OMFG, no! I refuse to watch any Kristen Stewart movies.

  59. jinni says:

    I would rather they pick Rachel Weiss ( yes, I know she’s older but she looks very young for her age) or Emily Blunt or Kate Winslet.

    They have an intelligent aura about them.

  60. MourningTheDeathofMusic says:


  61. LuckyLilGem says:

    She looks utterly bored brat on the red carpet. I hope they find someone who is excited to be a young starlet.

  62. LuckyLilGem says:

    Mila Kunis would be a hot Lois Lane. Kiera Knightly would fit the character well. Leighton Meister? Eh.

  63. icantbelievethis says:

    I vote Blake Lively for Lois Lane. Or Katie Holmes!

    hmm, maybe I’d rather see KS after all.

  64. skeevy says:

    I’m for “Alexis Bledel” besides she’s been majoring or practicing journalism in the least 2 seasons of Gilmore Girls huh -think she can do it right!

  65. baboosky says:

    That could/should NEVER happen when Henry Cavill is far more beautiful & decent than that KStupid!

  66. Katie says:

    Rachel McAdams would be an amazing Lois!

  67. My Darling Pinkett says:

    @Angel I did, honey, even before I made the comment. I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But I’ve seen pics like these in magazines that don’t hate on her. I’ve seen similar ones in a lot of places. Yes, she actually does look like this A LOT of the time. Sorry:) If you love her so much, then do yourself a favor and stop reading posts that bash her. She has plenty of insane fansites that you can adore her on with more “flattering” photos.

  68. jemshoes says:

    There’s a slight physical resemblance to Margot Kidder as Lois Lane, but that’s it (Kate Bosworth was a disaster in the last Superman movie because I kept looking for Kate Bosworth – ie the blonde hair!!!) … I agree that KS doesn’t really have any aura of depth or intelligence about her to pull off Lois Lane at this point, plus she’s overexposed because of the Twilight franchise. No one can see her as any other character other than Bella Swan. I know I can’t! I can’t comment on her acting because I’ve only ever watched Twilight (the first movie) and that’s it.

  69. annoyed says:

    leighton meester? i could see that happening.
    but Kristen Stewart?? why? why?? why does hollywood keep taunting me like this?
    first snow white, and now superman?
    do they not see that she is a terrible actress, do they not see that she isnt comfortable in her own skin….oh God, do they not see she is FAR from the fairest in the land.
    kristen should only be offered roles when she learns to stand up straight, act, stop biting her lips and when she gains some personality. i.e NEVER. i’m so fed up with her. Argh!!!!

  70. Sara says:

    I LOVED KS in “Panic Room”! I thought she was so cute and worked really well with Jodie Foster.

    Now I wonder what happened, she’s so annoying and every movie I see her in makes me cringe. Even “The Runaways” was only good because Dakoda Fanning is a great actress and the movie centered more around her than Joan Jett.

    I have no desire to see KS in any more movies. She should take the money she made and go live quietly somewhere. She says she hates being famous anyway.

  71. Str8Shooter says:

    Funny, I never knew Lois Lane was a doped-out looking stoner who rolled her eyes and bit her lower lip…oh right, that’s her ‘acting range’

    Yikes. What’s next? She gonna play Queen Elizabeth???

  72. crtb says:

    Please don’t let her mess up another movie franchise.

  73. Katija says:

    I think that she looks waaaay too young opposite the guy they chose. It would look like he’s kissing his little sister. Isn’t Lois Lane supposed to be a redhead? I vote for Isla Fisher. She is so underused and I adore her!

  74. too_foxxy says:

    Oh please… NO,NO,NO,NO!!!!! How could anyone possbly even consider putting KS as the co-star next to Henry (gorgeous) Cavill. The movie will be a sad, boring, snooze fest.

  75. annoyed says:
