Clark Kent's Daily Planet colleague Jimmy Olsen could change gender for the upcoming Superman reboot Man of Steel. Actress Rebecca Buller is listed as Jenny Olsen on the movie's IMDb page, leading to fan speculation that the character has been reinvented for Zack Snyder's film.
The most recent Man of Steel trailer featured a scene of Laurence Fishburne's Perry White and Buller running away from an explosion in Metropolis, suggesting that her character is a Daily Planet employee. Buller's role in the film has yet to be confirmed by Warner Bros or any official sources on the production. Jimmy Olsen, a photographer known as 'Superman's Pal', first appeared in Action Comics #6 in 1938.
