    That's not true because it would waste precious screen time to explain the presence of an ape.

    If modern audiences can accept sparkly vampires, then they can accept trained chimp sidekicks.

    Good to see you have an open mind about things.

    I'm not saying they couldn't accept it; just that it would have to be explained. And even if they could do that in one line of dialogue, it would be 15 seconds stolen away from more important storytelling. Human Jimmy or nothing!

    Considering that I am not really on board with this Zack Snider Superman thing, I could really not care much less as I don't intend to see it.

    I remember when they said Superman was never in the Legion of Superheroes, nothing matches compared to that. Will miss someone that actually made Clark look suave though.

    MEH! It’s only a rumor at this point. I hate the idea (unless they actually do something different with the character), otherwise it sounds stupid.

    Yeah, I feel the same way.

    I don't care as long as the actor or actress gives a good performance that is all that matters

    I keep hoping for a good Superman movie.

    This Jenny Olsen thing is just making me believe, despite having a good villain choice...the movie will tank.

    I'm indifferent. I like Jimmy as a character but it's not going to make me not want to see the movie.
    Did Wonder Woman and Superman just catch an aircraft carrier?

    I never answered because I felt it was something that didn't really matter... But I just thought about Jimmy being Clark's best friend. Clark was raised in a farm town went to a small school, like any red-blooded American male he wouldn't have a female best friend unless he was gay. It would totally work if his partner at the Planet was Larry Lane though, and then I'd be back in the "doesn't really matter" crowd.

    I would make a reference to Jack Larson that may well offend but taste dictates that I shouldn't.

    Just like Superman's suit, the movies success or failure has nothing to do with Olsen's sex.
    The only thing that matters is how well written the character is.

    Meeps? MEEEEEEPS!
