[I]t seems the media (TV and newspapers) are just now picking up on the “Beyonce Knowles as Lois Lane” rumor from earlier this week, and even though the rumor has been shot down as being false, various TV news programs and newspapers are running with the story.
It also appears that Johnny Depp is not connected with the role of Lex Luthor as previously rumored, but that he is supposedly trying out for the role of Jor-El.
As always, take these as purely rumors. Nothing is official until Warner
Bros. announces it… actually, believe nothing until you actually sit in the cinema and see it for yourself. :)
Media Rumors (www.supermanhomepage.com)
My former student Bobby Kuchenmeister sent me this item. The underground fan network has already deflated this as a rumor, but the mainstream media haven’t noticed.
It’s not unheard of for a PR campaign to “leak” something that is still under negotiation; when politicians do it, it’s called a trial balloon. If the public response is too negative, the informal report can be disowned as premature.
