Superman Man of Steel (2013): Jimmy Olsen Is A Girl?! Rebecca Buller As Jenny Olsen

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:5163:]]We are a few months out from the debut of the new Superman movie, Man of Steel, but no where in site has there been mention of Clark's pal from the Daily Planet, Jimmy Olsen.

And the reason being could be because Jimmy Olsen is not Jimmy Olsen, but Jenny Olsen.

The Man of Steel IMDb page has been updated which lists The Playboy Club actress Rebecca Buller as "Jenny Olsen."

This isn't the first time we've heard of a Jenny Olsen as we know she is the female version of Jimmy from DC Comics in which everyone on Earth changed sexes in an issue of Superman.

Obviously the male to female (and vice versa) switcheroo is not happening with the Man of Steel movie, but it looks as if Zack Snyder is staying true to his word in that he is taking Superman in a different direction, and again we see that with a female Jimmy Olsen.

Jimmy Olsen was most recently played by Sam Huntington in Superman Returns.

Is this an issue for the super fans out there? Let us know in the comments below.

Man of Steel flies into theaters June 14th, 2013 directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill as Superman, Michael Shannon as Zod, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Russell Crowe as Jor-El, Kevin Coster as Jonathan "Pa" Kent, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Martha "Ma" Kent, Christopher Meloni as Colonel Hardy, Harry Lennix as General SwanwickAntje Traue as Faora and Aylet Zurer as Lara Lor-Van.
