We’ve started to get a pretty good look at Man of Steel recently — we’ve got images, trailers and a pretty complete casting list. There is one character, however, who has eluded all of this publicity: Jimmy Olson. Jimmy, Clark Kent’s pal over at the Daily Planet, is usually depicted as a young, freckly ginger-haired fellow. It’s not unusual for movies to slightly alter a comic book character’s appearance, but there’s a rumor going around that Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel may have gone farther than the rest — by turning him into a girl.
Now this would be a turn for the worst.
