Superman/Lois Lane

I've never been all that into Superman, and I had very little hope that the new movie, if it ever happened, would be any good at all. But w/ Bryan Singer (X-MEN, X2) at the helm, maybe it won't totally suck. They cast some soap actor as the Man of Steel, and I'm all for casting nobodies in superhero/comic book flicks. But, the real news is about who might be Lois Lane:

According to the scooper, these six actresses are presently frontrunners for the part of Lois Lane in SUPERMAN. In alphabetical order they are:

Mischa Barton (THE O.C.)

Charisma Carpenter (ANGEL)

Mia Kirshner (THE CROW: CITY OF ANGELS, 24)

Evangeline Lilly (LOST) <---[ding, ding, ding, we have a winnah!]


Keri Russell (FELICITY)

I was pulling for Selma Blair back when she was all hot to do it, but please, please use EVANGELINE LILLY, Singer. The more we can see of her, the better, and she's not too recognizable as anybody else yet. Charisma Carpenter would make a better Wonder Woman. Mia Kirshner looks too old (not that she's haggard or anything, just looks too mature) and last time I checked Lois won't need to be doing any naked, lesbian love scenes with Lana Lang or anything (although that might have improved the movie Nic Cage was going to make). Mischa Barton is bleh, even though she's one of those "It" girls going right now. Keri Russel is eh. Natalie Portman's stock has been slipping with each woeful Star Wars prequel, but she showed she could return to form as every fanboy's wet dream in Garden State, so I'd put her at #2.

UPDATE: I guess there's one more addition to the Lois Lane list: Amy Acker, castmate on Angel of Charisma Carpenter. I don't know anything about that broad, though.
