Is he?  He seemed so much smaller on screen.  Mind you, it could just be that I've been watching too much DS9 recently and it's screwing with my mind's eye.  I'll know for sure if I start seeing Jeffrey Combs everywhere.
When you insult someone by calling them a "pig" or a "dog" you aren't maligning pigs and dogs everywhere.  The same is true of any term used as an insult.

He's around six foot.




I was gonna p'shop a crop of most of Combs' characters into a generic scene but it's too late and I'm too lazy.

Looking forward to this!  However, being on a different network, the chances of any cross-over episodes seem unlikely.

This is already a trillion times better than Man of Steel :P

It's great to not only finally get a female led superhero show, but also one that isn't afraid to acknowledge he fun side of being a superhero.

Could they have picked a worse Jimmy Olsen?

Political correctness demanded atleast one black main character. Just like JJ is making a statement with a black storm trooper in the new starwars and I've heard talk about a black James Bond too (facepalm) Before anyone says I'm racist, I am black so shut your mouth.

All that aside I love supergirl and hope they don't turn this into a bad series much like all the mistakes the supergirl movie had. I give them huge props for using her iconic costume and not that aweful suit that new 52 (more like new pancakey two) has her wearing.

Supergirl remains my favorite female character with Hawk Girl in next and it looks like Hawk Girl is going to be in some other dc series coming soon as well. Can't wait to watch them!

Edit: After a second viewing I know what I really don't like about it.  The soundtrack in the promo.  Please please please please not have this drivel in the series unless a radio is on in the background.  This isn't ABC Family.

As long as we're on the subject, has anyone else noticed how often we see a black man and blonde woman in proximity to each other in movies, on TV shows, and even in commercials? What's with that? Are they going for visual contrast, or something? Sometimes it's almost like it's a video-industry requirement now. A part of my mind tends to notice patterns, and I've been seeing this one for some time. So, when Jimmy's casting was announced, that part of my mind wasn't surprised.

I never noticed that, but I will say that blondes have always been my weakness. Maybe because my first two gf's were blonde I don't know though haha.

I don't know about the second video, but I tried to watch this one, and it said that it's a private video, and that I need to enter a password. :/

I have absolutely no problem with Jimmy Olsen not being nerdy because he is the comic book Jimmy and not the movie and television Jimmy.

Remember this.  Jimmy was only the gosh golly kid for the first couple of years that Superman (the character, not the comic) was around, and in the trailer it makes it look like Superman has been active for a considerable time.  In the later years (at least in the comics) Jimmy has gained multiple temporary super powers.  He is a reserve member of the Legion of Super Heroes.  He has had training in multiple forms of combat.  And he has teamed up with Superman in Kandor as part of the crime fighting duo Nightwing and Flamebird.  Just like Lois went from being the constant incompetent damsel in distress to being able to kick ass, Jimmy made the same transition from kid to man.

We have gotten used to seeing him as the nerdy photographer because every single superman movie and series that has existed has been an origin reboot and covering his first year or two at the Daily Planet.  But in the comics he has gone far beyond that.

James Olsen is being re-imagined in this way because of the licensing issues over Superman and the storytelling requirements of a Supergirl adaption - Superman's connection to Kara is a very important part of her character, but they don't have access to the character - so as far as this show goes, James Olsen = Superman. That's why he's projecting the strong, confident and caring mentor personality, because he's Clark's stand-in for the show - for example, take the last scene from the trailer where he gives her the Kryptonian baby blanket - make a couple of tweaks to the dialog and switch him out for Christopher Reeve, and the scene works exactly the same.
They couldn't really have Kara only communicating with Clark with text messages, and it wouldn't really fit the style of the show with all it's call-backs and references to the comics to just invent a new character who was a close friend of Superman who'd act as his stand-in and go-between with Kara.
The traditionally geeky Olsen personality wouldn't work in this show because of the role he has to play, plus it'd overlap with Kara to a certain extent, as well as her tech friend Winslow Schott.

I have a passing familiarity with Jimmy Olsen's comic book exploits.  He remains a goof despite them.  Rick Jones on the Marvel side similarly has done all sorts of things and yet he's also a bit of a goof - albeit more in the slacker artist vein than the clean cut nerd.  Hanging with cosmic powers does not exempt one from falling into the role.
