Olsen’s roots go back to almost the beginning of Superman comics, with his first appearance as a nameless, bowtie-clad “office boy” in Action Comics #6 in November 1938.

He was dubbed Jimmy Olsen in 1941 by Superman creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, and the young photojournalist is depicted as a close friend of Clark Kent and Lois Lane.

Olsen has been played on the big screen by Marc McClure in five Superman films, starting with 1978’s Superman: The Movie starring Christopher Reeve.

Sam Huntington played Jimmy in 2006’s Superman Returns, while Michael Cassidy played him in 2016’s Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Sampaio’s character Eve Tesmacher was actually created by Richard Donner and Mario Puzo for the 1978 Superman film, played by Valerie Perrine.

Parker Posey played a character similar to Eve Tesmacher in 2006’s Superman Returns, although she was named Kitty Kowalski and later appeared in several comics.

Gisondo started acting when he was just seven years old and has appeared in episodes of Everbody Loves Raymond, Monk, ER, Cold Case, Criminal Minds, House and CSI.

He went on to films such as Halloween, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story and The Amazing Spider-Man, where he played Howard Stacy, the brother of Emma Stone’s Gwen Stacy, the Vacation reboot, Booksmart and The Binge.
