Well, even if Jimmy also exists in the movie universe..technically since she's in there instead she IS still replacing him!
SauronsBANE - 3/11/2013, 5:14 PM
^I like this man Ror's thinking! Even if she was completely replacing Jimmy Olsen and becoming the female version of him, I don't see the big deal. Same thing with people whining about Lois Lane being a redhead. Amy Adams is gorgeous and is a great actress, she'll own her role

Jimmy is awesome
JR - 3/11/2013, 5:24 PM

Good Choice!
WhiteSAMURAI - 3/11/2013, 5:27 PM
Hmm Jimmy and Jenny. Sounds like twin names.
superbigguy32 - 3/11/2013, 5:29 PM
THANK GOD!!!! Cameron Monaghan (Shameless) needs to be Jimmy.
wolverinesfury - 3/11/2013, 5:30 PM
Kinda expected this.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 3/11/2013, 5:31 PM
I feel better now. A lot better.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 3/11/2013, 5:31 PM
Perfect choice
Tevii - 3/11/2013, 5:31 PM
Thats good news.

I always find it interesting when people say things like "who cares he's a uselss character" or when they change superheroes in the comics, "who cares he/she was a stupid character" "b-list" etc.
The fact is SOMEONE, SOMEWHERE cares for the character being changed. Its easy not to care when you dont care for the character, but we dont all like the same things. Always try to imagine if a character you like is being changed, how would you feel. THATS how someone feels EVERYTIME a change happens, EVEN about Jimmy. (not me personally for Jimmy, BUT im happy they didnt lose the character)
Invictor - 3/11/2013, 5:33 PM
I had no problem with a female version of Jimmy, most women just aren't so comedic like how Jimmy Olsen is.
StrangerX - 3/11/2013, 5:38 PM
Didn't really bother me.

xfan320 - 3/11/2013, 5:39 PM
I NEED me some JIMMY!!!

Ron Weasley for the new Jimmy! Lol

ironically, Jimmy is thhe character I've been wonderin about most for MoS!!
manofiron3 - 3/11/2013, 5:43 PM
People actually give half a shit about Jimmy Olsen?
DCjohnny - 3/11/2013, 5:49 PM
even if she is jimmy's replacement , I am fine with it.
superherofan21 - 3/11/2013, 5:57 PM
I totally called this. I knew she had to be his sister, not a replacement.
maryboo - 3/11/2013, 5:58 PM
Anyone who's a true Superman fan knows that Jimmy is basically Superman's own Robin. Aside from Lois, he's the only other friend that Clark has and is a huge part of mythos.
Shadowmaster35 - 3/11/2013, 6:10 PM
There was an uproar about Jimmy huh?
superbigguy32 - 3/11/2013, 6:14 PM
Why is everyone saying they didn't have a problem that Jimmy was going to be a girl or not being in the movie all together?!? You guys are A$$HOLES!!! Seriously. I mean Jimmy is apart of the Superman mythos. He's his sidekick. You guys are the same idiots that said, Robin better not show up in Nolans Batman. He's too cartoony, he won't fit in that world. And as soon as all you dumb asses figured out JGL was really Robin you all were praising the idea. So STFU!!!
MJPETTY7 - 3/11/2013, 6:16 PM
This makes me feel better about this situation...
Scooby - 3/11/2013, 6:33 PM
Whatevs, boobs make everything better :)
boostergold - 3/11/2013, 6:35 PM
Jenny gets killed off and her little brother Jimmy, who always wanted to be a photographer takes her place later, after the encouragement of Chloe Sullivan. Ah, crap!
CyberA - 3/11/2013, 6:38 PM

That works well enough for me, I suppose... *cool*/P :)

Rhino4508 - 3/11/2013, 6:39 PM

Superman fans will be affected by the lose of Jimmy, yes. He was a fairly major supporting character of Superman. If you read the comics, that's fairly obvious to anyone.
storyteller - 3/11/2013, 7:06 PM
Contrary to popular belief gender and ethnicity can matter. Ethnicity not so much depending on where the story takes place. Gender though matters a lot.

I'm hoping that Jimmy and other missing characters are just out of the game so that they don't try to shoehorn every character in.
Vaportrail - 3/11/2013, 7:08 PM
Well, alright then.

Yeah, she is so gonna die. There is no way she is not gonna die.
Ocelot - 3/11/2013, 7:11 PM
@superbigguy32 JGL wasn't robin lets get that straight
Super12 - 3/11/2013, 7:22 PM
Dang, some of you just can't be pleased huh? This is fantastic news! Jimmy Olsen still lives. What does it matter that he isn't in the first movie of a series? Everyone in all of Supermans life doesn't need an appearance in this first film
superotherside - 3/11/2013, 8:08 PM
I knew she was just Jimmy's sister.
CavEl - 3/11/2013, 8:20 PM
Who cares, Jimmy is quite literally my least favorite Superman supporting cast.
TopherH - 3/11/2013, 8:23 PM
Jimmy...Jenny. Doesn't matter, as long as there's someone getting coffee and taking pictures for Superman, it doesn't F***king matter.
