Default Re: The Official Jimmy Olsen Casting & Discussion Thread

Supposedly, as speculated, Jenny is related to Jimmy by being his sister...


SCOOP: Jenny Olsen Is NOT Replacing Jimmy Olsen In MAN OF STEEL

A lot of people have been up in arms thinking that Jimmy Olsen would be replaced in Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel by a female version of the character named Jenny. While Jenny will be in the movie, she is not replacing Jimmy.

A while back, an IMDB listing showed that actress Rebecca Buller (Pictured left with Laurence Fishburne) was playing Jenny Olsen in the upcoming Superman film, Man Of Steel. Then it was suggested that what Warner Brothers has done is replaced the character of Jimmy Olsen, with Jenny. While this rumor was unconfirmed it has seen it's fair share of fan uproar and backlash.

What I can tell you though, via my source close to the movie, is that Jenny will NOT be replacing Jimmy in the movie. Jenny will be Jimmy's sister. There will even be a reference to Jimmy in the movie, although I was not told what it is.When I asked what Jenny's job in Man Of Steel would be, I was simply told "No comment."

So what we can take away from this is that yes, Jenny Olsen will be in Man Of Steel, but she will NOT be replacing Jimmy like the rumors said. She will be his sister, and be featured in this first Man Of Steel movie. For the latest on all things Man Of Steel, make sure to check back here at CBM.

I was at some diplomatic party once. Got to talking to this princess who told me that when it came to Superman, I was missing the point. She told me, "His real strength lay in his generous spirit and sense of what's fair." - King Faraday
