Kristen Stewart apparently thinks one blockbuster movie franchise is enough. The fetching “Twilight” star was reportedly approached by producers of the new “Superman: Man of Steel,” movie about playing love interest Lois Lane. But it was a non-starter.
Superman director Zack Snyder and his wife Deborah, a producer on the film, reportedly met with Stewart to feel her out about taking the role, according to The New York Daily News.
While Stewart was not formally offered the part, Snyder was definitely interested in the raven-haired beauty, a source told the newspaper.
Stewart apparently thought the success of the “Twilight” franchises, in which she stars with boyfriend Robert Pattinson, was overwhelming enough.
As such, she wasn’t prepared to jump into another potential multi-film franchise. Instead, she expressed an interest in “smaller, independent films,” according to the News.
Outside of “Twilight,” Stewart has also appeared in “Welcome to the Rileys,” with James Gandolfini and “The Runaways” opposite Dakota Fanning. Neither did well at the box office.
Snyder, who also helmed “300,” about the Greek stand against the Persians at Thermopylae in 480 BC, is also reportedly considering Jessica Biel, “Glee’s” Dianna Agron, Rachel McAdams, Malin Akerman and Mila Kunis for the role.
British actor Henry Cavill has been cast as Superman, according to Warner Bros.
After Stewart wraps shooting on the last two “Twilight” films, “Breaking Dawn,” Part I and II, she reportedly is eying the lead role in
director Rupert Sanders’ “Snow White and the Huntsman.” It starts filming this summer.
Maybe they should have cast Pattinson as Superman?
