Lindsay Lohan would be Kryptonite for Superman reboot

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Lindsay Lohan is being considered for a major role in Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot.

What could go wrong?

What sounds like a bad joke is actually a story being reported over at TMZ, where Lohan’s representatives have leaked that the “actress” had “multiple phone conversations” with the Superman team, and could meet with them soon. She wouldn’t be playing love interest Lois Lane, but TMZ says it would be a “major character.”

While reps for Warner Bros had no comment, I’ll gladly comment for them. This will never happen. It should never happen. Lohan has proven time and again she’s a headache Hollywood no longer needs. While I respect the fact that she once showed talent in films like “Freaky Friday” and “Mean Girls,” Lohan has made far too many boneheaded decisions in her private life, and needs to prove herself with small professional projects before she’s given the opportunity to shine in a potential blockbuster.

Snyder has to know this. Superman doesn’t need the tabloid splash that would come with hiring Lohan to sell tickets. It’s Superman. Hiring Lindsay for any role in this film would instantly reduce Snyder’s Superman to the tragic depths of the disaster-prone “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.” Don’t do it, Warner. Don’t.
