Second time’s the charm it seems, as the latest, shorter Supergirl trailer drops the romance in favor of action, bringing out some famous Kryptonian abilities to do it.

Will Mehcad Brooks’ Jimmy Olsen Be A Love Interest For TV’s Supergirl? (Or Will She Date A Horse?)

Mehcad Brooks

Good news this week for fans of ComicsAlliance's officially ranked Third Greatest Comic Book Character Of All Time: Mehcad Brooks has been cast in the role of Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen in CBS's upcoming Supergirl show, meaning that the long national nightmare of Olsen-free television that we have suffered since 2009, when Jimmy was killed off on the 8th season finale of Smallville, is finally over.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Brooks's Olsen will be joining the ranks of other established comic book characters like the Toyman and -- no kidding -- Cyborg Superman in the cast, and will be featured on the increasingly bizarre-sounding show as a photographer at CatCo, a media company in National City founded by Cat Grant, where Supergirl works in her civilian identity, when she's not involved in what has been described as a crime procedural. Also included in the announcement, though, was the idea that Kara will have a crush on him, hinting at a relationship between the two characters.
