Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)
Yes. Chloe appeared in back up stories to Paul Cornell's Action Comics run prior to the relaunch. Think the plan was to eventually bring her into the main book, but of course the relaunch happened. Prior to this Kurt Busiek attempted to work her into his run but it never quite worked out.
I was kind of surprised they didn't work her into the New52 Superman stories in some manner.
