Anyway, wasn't expecting this to turn into more than a page of discussion in regards to Buller's race.

Why are we talking about her ethnicity? BTW, I think she looks ambiguous enough to play different types of ethnicities on film. But anyway...moving on.

People were saying Jimmy Olsen was going to be Indian because Jenny looks Indian to them.

Haha, really?

I mean, like what I said before, she looks exotic enough that she COULD play (if the role requires it) Latina/Hispanic, Greek, Italian, Turkish, Middle Eastern, mixed, or whatever... but..this is a weird topic indeed.

For me at first glance, I thought she was white. So, I found it interesting when it was believed that she was Indian or at least looked Indian. I can see why one would think that, but her look and last name implied that she was simply white to me.

A few were making jokes about casting Jimmy, and then fanboiii lost it, to the point that saying Jessica Alba looked Caucasian in the Fantastic Four.

Stop lying dude. Don't be mad because you were wrong but apparently you want to drag things out.

Perhaps you could read Octoberist or pretty much any post here. Heck, even Lencho01 who "agrees" with you.

No need to close this thread.

Jenny is confirmed or rumoured to be Jimmy's sister. So hopefully we get a cameo or mention of our favourite readhead in MOS.

After watching MoS you know what I think it needed? Some Olsen love. If they wanted to change or replace Jimmy with Jenny but I think it wouldve helped a lot if they had an Olsen be Lois's sidekick or whatever. Couldve added some humor

Thomas Mann could seriously be Jimmy Olson.



19, still in college, trying to break in with one day dreams of becoming a photographer for the Daily Planet.

I thought "Jenny Olsen" was this universe's "jimmy olsen"? Why else would they cast her if they are just going to bring in jimmy anyways? family dynamics?
