Jimmy Olsen In Batman v Superman Signaling a Very Grim Tale?

August 29th, 2014 by Todd Black Comments

Ok, this is not confirmed by ANY stretch of the imagination, but if it was, boy is DC going dark.

Rumors have been flying about how Batman v Superman won’t have any jokes, or humor, it’ll be an incredibly dark film.

According to The Devil’s Eyes, an extra revealed that Scoot McNairy will be playing Jimmy Olsen. A picture of him from the set was shown to the internet a little while ago…

And EVERYONE has been wondering what those green screen socks were for. Well…

“Scoot is playing Jimmy Olsen, but with a bit of a twist. Jimmy was injured during the battle of Zod vs Superman. His legs where pinned under falling building rubble and that caused him to lose the legs. He now walks with the use of two prosthetic legs.” The source goes on to add “He doesn’t blame Superman for it [his loss of legs]. He feels grateful that Superman saved the world.”

Hmm…interesting right? That’s definitely a twist from the usual set relationship Superman and Jimmy have. Again, this has not been confirmed, but it does raise some questions. Especially since the ending of Man of Steel was (and still is) highly controversial to many fans. With them bringing it up (apparently repeatedly) in BVS, what will the fans think?

Time will tell I guess.
