Kristen Stewart To Play Lois Lane?

Kristen Stewart has allegedly auditioned for the part of Lois Lane in the new Superman movie, according to reports.

The Twilight actress is just one in a long line of stars named as the potential heroine in the new flick, with Natalie Portman and Anne Hathaway amongst others in contention.

Kristen’s name however popped up when a Hollywood insider took to Twitter to say: “I’m hearing Kristen Stewart has officially read for Lois Lane in Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot.”

The blockbuster, scheduled for a 2012 release and titled Man of Steel, would be a follow-up to the 2006 film Superman Returns, where Kate Bosworth was cast as the Daily Reporter’s top investigative journalist.  English actor Henry Cavill has already been cast to don the red pants.
