Just for kicks: Anthony Hopkins had 16 mins of screen time in Silence of the Lambs. Anne Hathaway had about 15 mins in Les Mis. Judy Dench 8 mins in Shakespeare in Love.....I'm guessing Olsen won't be as important to the plot as those other roles.
True, but I wasn't taking you as meaning a literal 5 minutes tops. I was responding to your argument which read as "it doesn't really matter because she will barely be in the film". I was responding that based on what we've seen, she appears to be a prominent Daily Planet character and always in frame with Perry.
Also, I can't believe anyone seriously thinks that Jenny will be Jimmy's older sister. When Smallville did that, the fans were outraged and Smallville fans were able to stomach and accept a lot of ridiculous and crappy ideas. There is no way that Goyer is doing that.
