I don't know if Jimmy Olsen will be part of the Man of Steel film, but I hope they give the character a nod. It was cool to me that Jimmy was a sidekick that you could actually relate to a little more than most, which were simply younger versions of the starring hero. Jimmy was just a regular awkward kid that Superman saw something special in, and it gave the reader the feeling that they could be worthy of being Superman's Pal too. Hopefully Jimmy will not be deemed too "uncool" and be jettisoned from this new film iteration altogether.
