Word around the campfire over the past few days was that three actresses were up for a part in Zach Snyder’s upcoming “Superman”, a part that is now rumored to be the villainess Ursa. The women named are Alice Eve, Rosamund Pike, and Diane Kruger. However Kruger now says that there is no truth to the rumor that she is on the shortlist to play the sinister Kryptonian.
“No,” the actress said today, immediately following the press conference for her latest film, “Unknown”, “it’s not true.”
That’s too bad, because out of the three, Kruger would have been my favorite to play Ursa. She seems like she could bring a nice little mean streak to the character, an understated nastiness that would help the role. Oh well.
“Superman” is supposed to begin filming this summer, with eyes on a December 2012 release date.
