At the 2018 Comic-Con in San Diego we got a chance to talk to Marc McClure, Jimmy Olsen in the Superman and Supergirl movies, who attended the convention to promote the Blu-ray release of Supergirl. About 40 years of portraying Jimmy Olsen, McClure states that he loves the character for his personality and relationship with the other characters in the films. “He’s the greatest guy!” McClure admits. He also states that he is ready to pass the baton to the next actor to play as Jimmy and hopes that “in the future they take care of Jimmy.” When asked about his favorite memories with the late Christopher Reeves and the late Margot Kidder on set, he could not pin point one particular moment, but states he misses them dearly and wishes them rest in peace (as we all do). He left us an inspirational quote he heard of, “‘get out of bed and make a difference’,” and encourages anybody with a dream to take the quote to heart as it can lead them to be the next interviewee. We are so glad to meet McClure at Comic-Con. We thank him for his advice and luck on our career paths and we wish him well on his.
A generation before Kara Zor-El conquered the airwaves, a soon-to-be-legendary actress made her motion picture debut as the “Maid of Might” in a big-screen follow-up to Superman: The Movie. As a fan-favorite phantasmagoria, Supergirl arrives in heroic high definition at last (after decades of demand) from your friends at the Warner Archive Collection (WAC). The original Supergirl, Helen Slater (The Secret of My Success), alongside her Jimmy Olsen, Marc McClure (Superman, Back to the Future), and WAC podcasters Matt Patterson and D. W. Ferranti shine the super spotlight at this caped wonder and reveal what’s in store on the new Supergirl Blu-ray release. Moderator Gary Miereanu will have goodies for some lucky fans. | Schedule
