So with a few months before Man of Steel hits the theaters, there’s been a lot of questions revolving around Jimmy Olsen’s character. That is, there isn’t any Jimmy Olsen in this film. So what gives? Where is the photographer of the Daily Planet? Well, from the looks of it, it’s because there’s no Jimmy Olsen.
According to IMDB, there is a Jenny Olsen but no Jimmy, so who is she? Is she a relative? a sibling? or….. a female version of Jimmy Olsen?
You may notice the unknown actress Rebecca Buller is listed as Jenny Olsen and is in the Man of Steel trailer.
Although, this potential change may stir some heat around our comic book fans or just folks that know of the character, it definitely raises an interesting debate on what the reasons are behind it and how current times affect comic books and comic book adaptations. Would this affect the story in anyway with the changes or is it irrelevant? Let us know what your thoughts are.
Man of Steel hits theaters on June 14, 2013
