Could Natalie Portman Be the Next Lois Lane?

     September 28, 2010

In more Superman linked news, Moviehole is reporting that Natalie Portman might be the new Lois Lane in the reboot of the Superman franchise. The common thread to this rumor, as with current details surrounding Superman: The Man of Steel, is visionary director Darren Aronofsky. Portman and Aronofsky recently collaborated on the director’s upcoming thriller, Black Swan, which has been attracting buzz like the Tea Party attracts middle aged Caucasian women with political aspirations.

While just a rumor, it seems logical given Aronofsky and Portman’s recent work together and Portman’s past connection to the franchise. I’m certain Portman could excel in the role and be a vast improvement over past celluloid incarnations of Lois Lane. Though, would it be beneath her considerable acting chops to play a damsel in distress? Black Swan swoops into theaters with a limited initial release beginning December 1st, 2010.
