You may have already heard, but the latest absurd casting rumor for the tentatively called Man of Steel (title, also a rumor) is Natalie Portman as Lois Lane, joining the ideas of Zachary Levin and Jon Hamm, among others, as Superman. It’s the sort of casting rumor that one could logically connect because of Darren Aronovksy’s rumored connection to direct, and his recent working relationship with Portman in the Oscar-contending Black Swan. That is to say, it’s a rumor connected to another rumor, and it’s all based upon a a hearsay suggestion.

But it could happen. Weirder things have. But the likelihood is on par with these other casting rumors of recent years that, theoretically, haven’t been ruled out, as there has been no official casting on any of the below projects.

2. Cher as Catwoman in the Dark Knight sequel (UK Telegraph)
