Natalie Portman to romance Superman in new movie?

London: Hollywood actress Natalie Portman is reportedly in talks to play Superman`s love interest Lois Lane in a new movie based on the superhero.

Darren Aronofsky, who directed `The Wrestler` and the forthcoming `Black Swan`, may land the job of helming the new film, reported Contactmusic.

Portman, 29, would be cast as Clark Kent`s love interest, the journalist `Lois Lane`, joining a long list of high-profile actresses who have previously tackled the role, including Kate Bosworth and Teri Hatcher.

"They wanted her (Portman) first time around, this time they can get her - with Darren. But who knows where that`s at now.... nothing on paper yet," said a source.

Aronofksy and Portman recently teamed up for the thriller `Black Swan`, which sees the actress playing a New York ballet dancer intent on landing the lead role in a production of `Swan Lake`.

The next Superman movie, provisionally titled `The Man of Steel` has been written by David Goyer and will be produced by Christopher Nolan.
