Three Competing for the Superman Female Lead?

With Henry Cavill set for Zack Snyder’s Superman, the attention is shifting to the female lead, and Variety is reporting that three actresses are in contention for the role – though it’s not Lois Lane.

Alice Eve, Diane Kruger and Rosamund Pike have emerged as the three actresses being considered for the unknown character, says the trade.

The article also mentions that the studio is currently putting a search out for its villain as well, but no names have been set in stone.

Filming is expected to start this summer for a December, 2012 release.
