3 considered for ‘Superman’ female lead

Eve, Kruger, Pike compete for Warner Bros. pic

Exclusive: With Henry Cavill set as the Man of Steel, Warner Bros. has set a short list of contenders for “Superman’s” femme lead.

Alice Eve, Diane Kruger and Rosamund Pike are the three thesps being considered for the role, whose identity hasn’t been disclosed — but it’s not Lois Lane.

Eve has the most modest resume, but has seen her profile grow in the last year after starring in Paramount’s “She’s Out of My League.”

Pike has been on Hollywood’s radar since her turn as a Bond girl in “Die Another Day” and has since had several supporting roles, including “An Education” and “Barney’s Version.”

Kruger has had significant leads in both “National Treasure” pics, “Troy” and “Inglourious Basterds” — but this would mark one of her most high-profile roles.

Studio is also in the midst of a search for a “Superman” villain. Zack Snyder is directing from a script by David Goyer with Christopher Nolan producing. Studio is looking to start production this summer with a December 2012 release date.

All three thesps are repped by UTA. Eve is also repped by Untitled and Pike by Magnolia Entertainment.
