Deborah Snyder Shoots Down Man of Steel Jenny Olsen Rumor


Not too long ago it came out there appeared to be a "Jenny Olsen" in the Man of Steel movie, played by Rebecca Buller.

I think it was IMDb who updated their movie page listing it as so, with everyone thinking that Jenny had replaced Jimmy Olsen in the movie.

Well, there was no mention of a "Jenny Olsen" in Man of Steel, and IMDb has since appeared to correct their listing with only "Jenny."

Now, Deborah Snyder comments on the replacement rumor, stating that wasn't so, and that Jenny is just a character in the movie.

"Or that, we have a character, an intern called Jenny, who was actually Jimmy Olsen!" Snyder replied when asked about bizarre rumors in Man of Steel by SFX Magazine. "That we had replaced Jimmy Olsen with Jenny. She’s just a character.”

An official WB image still also lists Buller's character as just "Jenny," though I am unsure of what is listed in the official credits for the film. At one point it was also rumored Jenny was Jimmy's relative, though that hasn't been confirmed as well.

Update: Actually the photo below lists the name as "Jenny Jurwich."
