Promoting the Man of Steel!
Total Film is ready to promote the H’el outta the new Superman movie Man of Steel. Check out the cover of the upcoming May issue featuring Henry Cavill and Amy Adams, as Superman and Lois Lane!
Jenny or Jimmy Olsen??
Who else will be featured in the upcoming reboot!? Well debate of a gender change for Jimmy Olsen has been running rampant on internet. The IMDB listing of Jenny Olsen has caused its fair share of confusion but apparently this is all changing with the announcement that Jimmy Olsen will not be left out of the mythos this time around. According to CBM’s Jake Lester:
What I can tell you though, via my source close to the movie, is that Jenny will NOT be replacing Jimmy in the movie. Jenny will be Jimmy’s sister. There will even be a reference to Jimmy in the movie, although I was not told what it is.When I asked what Jenny’s job in Man Of Steel would be, I was simply told “No comment.“
I hope that they do include everyone’s favorite ginger photographer! How else will we get the spin-off of The Adventures of Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen!?!?
Don’t ever count out Lex Luthor!
Last but certainly not least today what would a Superman film be without at least the mention of Earth’s favorite genius super-villain Lex Luthor?! Man of Steel is set to feature the bald man in at least spirit, ala the Amazing Spider-Man‘s Norman Osborn reference!
He’s never shown but he is referenced in the way Norman Osborn is referenced in ASM. They state in the movie that he is working on a new AI that will “revolutionize technology unlike anything Metropolis has ever seen.
Is this hinting at the inevitable introduction of Brainiac? I hope so, it has been far too long, and hopefully with the release of Superman: Unbound this summer, the demand for the character to show up in the cinematic universe will be EXPECTED!!
Man of Steel flies in to theaters on June 14th!
