Superman plot rumours, Lohan and Harris join cast?

Superman plot rumours, Lohan and Harris join cast?

I still find it hard to believe that Warner Bros would take such a risk in hiring the I’d-have-thought-uninsurable Lindsay Lohan for the new “Superman” movie – still Radar Online insist the troubled actor is in talks to get down with a dude in red undies that answers to Kal. The aforementioned site doesn’t state who Ms Lohan would be playing, only that she’s been reading with newcomer Adam Harris…. who, by the way, is said to be up for – drum roll! – Lex Luthor. Oh, and YouBentMyWookie has since confirmed with Harris’ people that their client is indeed in the mix to play the bald villain so there could be an ounce of truth to the Lohan rumours. I dunno…

Speaking of rumours that from the outset sound bogus -albeit ones that may actually prove to be true – there’s a rumoured plot for the new film doing the rounds this week.

MovieNewz posted the following info :

General Sam Lane, the father of Lois Lane, is a central figure in director Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot. This really is as Zack described in several interviews about the film, a “real world” Superman. I’m told that when Superman arrives on the scene; people don’t know what to think. He’s an alien from another planet. What are his real intentions? He’s not human and that scares a lot of people. Here’s a guy who can fly, see through walls, is bullet proof and can lift a tank. The military views him as a potential threat to national security. They find kryptonite, pieces of his home planet, and discover its radioactive elements can be harnessed as a near unlimited source of power, both literally and figuratively. It’s a brand new form of energy that is secretly developed by the government. The military, under the direction of General Sam Lane, uses kryptonite to power an experimental cyborg super solider named Metallo. He’s ultimately exploited as a weapon against Superman.

They also have the following short synopsis :

In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry Cavill) is a young twenty-something journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question – Why am I here? Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Diane Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner), Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as “Superman,” not only to shine as the world’s last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.

Now I normally wouldn’t bother posting a rumoured plot synopsis, especially for a film as big as “Superman” because, quite frankly, most of them turn out to be bogus (studios even leak faux synopsis as part of a misinformation campaign) but I’m mentioning this one because about a week before a possible plot leak appeared on another site called Superman Superworld– and it’s pretty much a twin. (Still, that doesn’t mean it’s not the same chap emailing these websites with fake scoops). Again, this site reports that this new ‘real world’ take on “Superman” features General Sam Lane as the villain.

Whatcha say folks? fake? real? possibly real?
