Diane Kruger Denies Superman Rumors

"No," the actress said today, immediately following the press conference for her latest film, Unknown , "it’s not true."

Kruger was allegedly in competition against both Alice Eve and Rosamund Pike for an unknown female lead, said not to be the character of Lois Lane. While it’s possible that even her denial is part of the secretive nature of the project, it does cast some doubt on the rumors currently linked to both the part and to the alleged short list.

An official cast is expected to be announced soon, though, as filming on Superman is expected to start this summer for a December, 2012 release.
