You don't just have to be good to date Gina Carano, you have to be super, man. Luckily for Henry Cavill, who stars in this summer's "Man of Steel" movie, he fits the bill.

Former Strikeforce female fighting sensation Gina Carano, who left mixed martial arts (MMA) back in 2009 to pursue a career in Hollywood, has already been cast in her latest role.

Meet the new Lois Lane.

"Conviction" made her red carpet debut at the Critic's Choice Movie Awards (see the full pic here) alongside her boyfriend of four months, Henry Cavill, who just so happens to be playing the part of Superman in the upcoming "Man of Steel" summer blockbuster movie.

I believe that's referred to as "winning."

While the onscreen role of Lois Lane goes to Amy Adams, Carano can next be seen in "The Fast and the Furious 6,"sharing screen time with WWE superstar "The Rock" and longtime franchise lead Vin Diesel.

While her big screen debut in "Haywire" failed to deliver any box office beatings, Carano was quickly invited back to Tinseltown for this year's "In the Blood" as well as a female version of "The Expendables."

Carano actually flirted with the idea of returning to combat sports and even went so far as to book herself in a return fight against Sarah D'Alelio back in 2011; however, she was subsequently forced off the card for undisclosed medical reasons.

A return to the cage at this point in her career, seems highly unlikely.

Oh, Henry.
