MAN OF STEEL: Jimmy or Jenny?

MAN OF STEEL: Jimmy or Jenny?

With less than six months to go until Man of Steel hits, many fans have been wondering about Jimmy Olsen. Where is he? Why we have not seen anything about him? Well, it might be because there's no "him". HE is actually HER. Will we see a female version of Jimmy Olsen in Man of Steel?




According to IMDB, unknown actress Rebecca Buller is playing Jenny Olsen in the upcoming Superman movie, Man of Steel.




IMDB is not the most reliable source in the world, but, watching the trailer, the girl running from the bursting building alongside Laurence Fishburne's Perry White looks a lot like Buller.



Change can annoy some purists fans - and even those who are not as demanding - but the controversy raises an interesting debate about sexism in comic books and comic books adaptations. We're already familiar with the ethnicity changes in comic book movies, but what about the change of gender of a character? Is it too much? Could this be a reflection of modern society trying to fix past mistakes with regard to sexual segregation in old social orders? Or is it irrelevant? Leave your thoughts in the comment section.

Directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill, Michael Shannon, Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Laurence Fishburne, Kevin Costner and Ayelet Zurer, Man of Steel is set to hit theatres on June 14, 2013.
