Default Re: The Jimmy Olsen Casting Thread

Jenny's the girl who was Lois' coworker at the DP.

Due to some stuff that showed her last name being Olsen it was speculated that she was Jimmy with a sex change, Jimmy's sister/relative, or Jimmy's wife. Her name ended up not being Olsen.

Lerman as Jimmy would be such waste of potential as he suits to play Dick.

Oohhh...the girl with the awesome my life is about to end scream. Thank you! I remember her now.

Jenny aside, we need Jimmy Olsen. I just don't see him as a traditional Jimmy in this universe.

I think the reason I recommended Chon is I kind think Jimmy should be tenacious and fearless, which means in my mind I was thinking about Glen from TWD.

Anyhoo, with all talk about Supes disguise I think Jimmy's role could be pivotal. He maybe trying to get a picture of Supes and finally gets one.

Whatever reason he is used I think he should be non-white. The fact they did it with Perry is irrelevant. I just think as a character for this universe he shouldn't be white.

But why?


What's so wrong about Jimmy being Caucasian?

Hahaha. Yeah, her.

I just have this feeling they're going to have someone that looks about Clark's age, so I don't see someone like Chon who plays high school to college aged characters getting the role.

I'm pretty sure it's common for Jimmy to be the first one to get a good picture of Superman.

Exactly times 1000!!!
This pic: "Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson traveled back back in time during the events of DKR".
Few other actors in history are as much Robin material as Lerman is/was. I haven't seen something similar since 1998/99.

Nothing wrong with it. I just don't think he should be because this is a much more diverse world. It just makes sense to have his character be diverse. I guess you can say it's diversity for diversity's sake, but we do live in a diverse world so I think it's a more modern take.

Hmmm...and older Jimmy that's Clark's age...meh. I'm not seeing it. I don't think he should be high school young, but definitely in his twenties. I think that's just my view of him. Chon is in real life 32 years old. He just has that good Asian skin. I'm sure he can play older.

I'd like Jimmy being the first one who gets a pic or video of Supes to be kept if that's possible. Considering photos or video of him might be a key point then there should definitely be a Jimmy Olsen in the film.

Well this is a dumb post.

I'm pretty sure comic book movies are the only movies where people are this conscious of race.

People are taking "diversity" too far. Yes, it's good to have diversity on film, but it's not a negative thing for another white character to be involved. Wtf

True. I wouldn't have minded Zoe Saldana as Lois Lane perhaps.

Actually I may have preferred it.


I'm fine with racebending as long as it makes sense.


Like it wouldn't make sense to have a Black Bruce Wayne since the Wayne family is 'old money.'

Why because I think the world is diverse or I want a movie that represents that? I understand the complaints from folks that hate these cries, but the reality is A LOT of comics were created when things were just Lilly white. They are not representative of the world we live in today and it's a good things to make that change when appropriate. It doesn't mean it should always be made in every case, but in this case with Jimmy I think it would be a good change to make.

Well, he was pretty much Clark's age in Superman Returns, Smallville (though it wasn't the real Jimmy), and I think the current comics.

Doesn't really matter how old Chon is. Just how he looks. All I've seen him in were roles that high school or college aged. I mean, his latest major role was about some kid who just turned 21. So, even if they were to cast an Asian actor for the role, I'd imagine it'd be someone that looks older or at least about the same age as the actress that played Jenny.

I don't care that much who plays Jimmy. I just want there to be a Jimmy in the movie. I don't see why they would want to exclude him from all Supes movies.

I'm not really current with 52. I probably won't ever be until the Lois Lane situation is resolved.

I like Chon's energy on film. He's bubbly and excited. He just has a vibe that I think would work well for Jimmy. He does look young, but I think that has some to do with way he is styled. He could be dressed up a bit to look a bit older.

Anyhoo, I just want someone with his energy and I think it would be good if they changed it up with Jimmy. I don't see anything wrong with that and would applaud Synder if he went there.

He never said there was anything wrong with having a white actor. And why do you have diversity in quotes? You should go back and actually try processing what was being said.

Hard to grasp how someone thinks that having a comic book film be slightly more representative of the real world (something that same film was aiming to do anyway) is somehow "taking diversity too far."

Stop saying that everything is a missed oportunity. Their job was to make Batman films and not to satisfy every fanboy's desires for fan service.

The real missed opportunity was making JGL's character John Blake and not Dick Grayson

If "fans" (and i'm using the term very loosely) didn't like John Blake as a character or didn't get his name reveal then if he was Dick Grayson they would be hating, big time !! This isn't some Mandarin thing were you can turn your brain off, laugh at the jokes because the character doesn't matter. Changing Dick Grayson so much with 0 payoff just so we can dream and speculate about a Nightwing movie that will never happen is just bad ! Bad screenwriting, very disrepsectful to the character and to the movies for trying to do something different. A spinoff was NEVER a plan for Nolan. John Blake is there as a reference to what Robin as a character represents (every Robin, not just Dick) and that alone.

Less to do with fan service.


More to do with using Nolan's films as the backdrop for a bigger DCU on film.


Like I said, they retired, retconned and rebooted their #1 franchise at it's prime. That was a dumb move, and a missed opportunity indeed.

They were never going to be part of a bigger DCU ! That was not the plan. The geniuses behind the movie never intended to make the film a part of a bigger universe. Man of Steel was conceived as an idea after The Dark Knight Rises had wrapped up its production. Also there is something called art and believe it or not cinema except buisness is art and some people are not willing to change their "art" for money which is essentially what you are asking for.

The fact they did this actually showed me WB doesn't always eff it up. Retiring that Batman was the perfect thing to do because the actor, director and pretty much everyone else involved had told their story. I am glad they didn't try to force the issue and instead brought their golden child Nolan in on MOS. I doubted this would be a good decision, and I'm still not totally convinced, but it certainly wasn't a bad idea...that is for sure.

Anyhoo...back on Olsen. The more I look at Chon, the more I hope we get a different kind of Jimmy. We definitely need more news and information soon though...lol.
