More Supergirl Set Photos Show Iconic Clark Kent Moment

imageWith filming of the first episode of season 2 underway, there are bound to be a lot of photos to come from the set of Supergirl. Last night we showed you some of Tyler Hoechlin in his glorious Superman Costume and now we have a few more of him as Clark Kent. Candagraphs revealed an additional photo of him with a noticeably taller Jimmy Olsen. But, more interestingly, they also have an image where Hoechlin does the most iconic Clark Kent thing; He runs down the street while unbuttoning his shirt revealing the Superman costume. This is something that his DC Films counterpart has not done yet. So, a lot of hard core Superman fans should be happy, unless they’re already unhappy that Jimmy is a giant compared to Clark. You can check out a few of those images below and check out more from Candagraphs.

What do you guys think of the photos? Are you excited for this new interpretation of Superman? Let us know in the comments section below.

    I really wish they cast someone else as Jimmy Olsen. This guy does not embody the character at all. Someone like Tyler James Williams would’ve been a better fit.

    • ArKane

      Yeah i’ll be honest this jimmy is nothing like what I at least know. I hate when people try to “reinvent” a character to such extremes.. I mean at some point just call it a new character. Plus its kind of awkward to see superman next to Jimmy. I saw other pictures where superman is looking up towards him. Just odd in my opinion.

        The beauty about the DCU, is that it’s a Multiverse, so there can be different incarnations of the same character. Some are very similar to others (almost identical), others quite different, to the point of only having a name in common.

        But that’s okay. DC never once promised the public that they were doing to do direct adaptations of their stories. There’s plenty in the Supergirl show that is recognizeable. Just because this Jimmy isn’t the one “you know”, doesn’t mean he’s not still Jimmy Olsen. And just like the CIA version of the character in BVS was still Jimmy Olsen.

        And some might say this Jimmy from the TV show is far more interesting than the versions in the comics that we’ve gotten over the years.

        • ArKane

          ugh don’t remind me of Bvs. The most I can say about that Jimmy is he died. Didn’t get to know him. Which in my opinion was idiot to kill him off. I got Zack didn’t know what to do with him or how he fit but that doesn’t mean people after wouldn’t…

          The thing with changing the characters so drastically is that it can alienate audiences who expected something and know those characters. I’m not saying i’m alienated by this jimmy like i feel alienated by some of the DC movie universe’s choices.

          Personally Supergirl isn’t really my cup of tea. I will watch this upcoming season but last season bored me. I get changing little things to a character like changing hair colour or making him black for example not a big deal to me. His whole persona and attitude is quite different.

          My question is if you are going to make the small and big changes to a character what is the harm in making a new character? To just slap the name on someone completely different doesn’t seem like a good move..

            Meh, it’s not like Jimmy is a major character (or a particularly interesting one) to start with. It’s not like they killed off Lois. Although, it would have been interesting to see where they went with CIA Jimmy in the DCEU, but it’s no biggie. People are not turning out in droves to see Jimmy Olsen, in any incarnation, all the more reason why this grievance of yours seems a bit strange.

            The thing with changing the characters so drastically is that it can alienate audiences who expected something and know those characters. I’m not saying i’m alienated by this jimmy like i feel alienated by some of the DC movie universe’s choices.

            There are two types of audience members: 1) Those who know little to nothing about those characters, and 2) Those who are thoroughly informed about these characters. I myself fit into category #2.

            As such, I know about the DC Multiverse. So a change to a character doesn’t bother me, because I’ve trained myself to know/understand that I’m looking at the Multiverse. In fact, the changes are not only welcomed, but they are expected at this point.

            Besides, Toyman Jr more than fills the role of the “classical” Jimmy on the show.

            Well, if you don’t like the show as a whole, then I don’t get what complaining about a supporting character will change. This just sounds kinda nitpicky to me.

            My question is if you are going to make the small and big changes to a character what is the harm in making a new character? To just slap the name on someone completely different doesn’t seem like a good move..

            I just explained to you, that this is the Multiverse. Not sure how much more plain that can be explained to you.

            Jimmy never really had a chance to be interesting in the movie. What is one major thing missing from the DCMCU so far? levity. Jimmy could have added that in the Superman solo films… I have two grievances with this actually. 1) No he’s not a draw for the films but I enjoyed his interacts with Superman/clark in comics now the big screen wont have them. 2) Zack simply killing him for the sake of killing him. There was no real weight for that guy being Jimmy. If he was in man of steel sure, maybe. But why even make him Jimmy at that point?

            I would say im part of the audience that is fairly well informed on the comics as well. Your right the Toyman Jr does fill that role but why does he have it? So they gave away jimmys role to someone else to revamp jimmy into someone else. Logic. It just seems weird.

            I never said i didn’t like the show. Near the ending it bored me and in the beginning it was a bit to much girl power but i enjoyed it. Enough to let you know Im watching season two. So you cant said i didn’t like it.

            I mean fine if they wanted to arbitrarily change peoples names and personas around. Let them, I`ll stop watching most likely. I mean I hope people like it. My opinion isn’t the centre of the universe lol. As for the movies. I get that is one of the multiverses as well. I have huge issues with those however. I’ve waited so long to see all these and to see them miss handled, miss cast, having people shoved into the movie, completely changing backgrounds for a lot of them. Its frustrating.

            Lastly one thing that does bug me a lot is the audiences that dont know these characters and are being introduced to them like this, people who may never read a comic. I feel sorry for them they wont get to fully realise the richness of some of these characters because of the poor quality movies.

          • SAMURAI36

            Jimmy never really had a chance to be interesting in the movie.

            True, to some extent. But the premise that they intro’d was at least somewhat interesting.

            What is one major thing missing from the DCMCU so far? levity. Jimmy could have added that in the Superman solo films…

            Meh, levity is grossly overrated. Having Jimmy in the previous Superman films didn’t make them great (or not great).

            Also, what is the DCMCU?

            I have two grievances with this actually. 1) No he’s not a draw for the films but I enjoyed his interacts with Superman/clark in comics now the big screen wont have them. 2) Zack simply killing him for the sake of killing him. There was no real weight for that guy being Jimmy. If he was in man of steel sure, maybe. But why even make him Jimmy at that point?

            These are fair points. Honestly, I thought they’d replaced JImmy with “Jenny” in the last 2 films. But I guess not. I just don’t feel like I’ve lost much of anything, since Jimmy isn’t that interesting of a character. He’s just comic relief, and not much more.

          • JMMagwood

            It’s pretty simple to me. That character in “BvS” was named Jimmy Olsen as more of a little jokey Easter egg more than anything else. There was a decision to not use the JO character in these movies thus far, but ya wanna bet whenever we get to some Superman solo movies again, don’t be surprised to see Jimmy show up, and perhaps we’ll find out that the “BvS” JO was the uncle of the JO that will work at The Planet, and inspired a younger Jimmy Olsen.

            I gotta say, picking on Snyder and Terrio for a bit part non-character is SUCH weak cheese…

        • JMMagwood

          I’ll ignore most of the comments here and reply to yours. The Jimmy in Supergirl reminds me of the “Mr. Action” Jimmy Olsen of the ’70’s. A more mature, man of action JO than we usually have, but still the nicest guy around, and best friend of Superman. This Jimmy seems in that mold to me, and he’s well played by Brooks. I’m hoping the chemistry is really there between Brooks and Hoechlin, like it is with Brooks and Benoist. Well, not exactly the same, but you get my point. lol

          • SAMURAI36

            LOL precisely!! See, you get it!!
            Which just goes to show, that most people who complain about these changes, really don’t know the full history of these characters, they only know the brief period in time in which they might have encountered them.
            Now, I will say that perhaps one of the best Jimmy renditions, was the Sam Huntington version from Superman Returns. That’s probably closer to the version people know best.
            However, that didn’t save that movie from being bad, now did it?

          • JMMagwood

            That movie had some bad writing, I have to say, but I sure did like Routh as Superman. I wish he’d been given a better script to work with. But then, we wouldn’t have gotten Cavill, whom I prefer.

            My favorite Jimmy Olsen is Mr. Action, as a matter of fact. That’s the only time I’ve enjoyed the character anywhere. Therefore, it makes sense that Brooks’ JO is probably my favorite portrayal in live action settings. I do admit I have a soft spot for Jack Larson’s Jimmy, but the rest have always left me cold at best, and annoyed at worst.

    I like that boyish farmboy thing Tyler is doing in the last picture.

  • Joey Wabi-Sabi

    I’m loving the iconic shirt rip moment. We haven’t seen this on the big screen or small screen in YEARS. Seeing this kinda makes me want a Superman TV series….I actually wouldn’t mind something like a Lois and Clark series. It would also appease those fans who prefer the more lighthearted Superman stories; or for people like myself who enjoy seeing different interpretations of their favorite heroes.
