Movie beauty Kate Bosworth will play Lois Lane in the new Superman movie, after beating Beyonce Knowles to the much sought-after part.

The 21-year-old Wonderland actress - the girlfriend of ORLANDO BLOOM - will join relative unknown Brandon Routh, who will become the Man of Steel in eagerly awaited blockbuster SUPERMAN RETURNS.

OSCAR-winner Kevin Spacey is being tipped to play Superman's nemesis LEX Luther.

The movie, the first Superman film since 1987 flop SUPERMAN IV: THE QUEST FOR PEACE, will begin shooting in March (05) - and is scheduled for release in 2006.
