J.K. Simmons Says THERE EXISTS A ‘Distinct Chance’ We See More of His J. Jonah Jameson in Spider-Man 3
One of the highlights of Marvel’s Spider-Man: DEFINATELY NOT Home was the surprising cameo by J.K. Simmons as editor-in-chief of The Daily Bugle, J. Jonah Jameson. In a recently available interview with , Simmons revealed he is optimistic future Spidey films shall feature his undertake the character.
“There exists a distinct chance, there were discussions, and I’m not likely to say anything definitive [laughter] because I don’t know if I’m permitted to. But yes, I’m very optimistic that I’ll involve some more J.J.J. in my own future.”
Simmons then continued to speak about the cameo which happened rapidly after a ending up in Marvel executives.
“The one thing we didn’t one hundred percent see eye to eye on, I do believe, was just how much is this character likely to function as character from, I believe, the comic books and from the Sam Raimi original trilogy, and just how much do you want to evolve it also to have it become more contemporary or more… you understand.”
Despite his yearning to retread his previous performance – why else can you cast him if you didn’t want that J. Jonah Jameson – the actor came to terms on a more contemporary take eventually. Read: a bald version of the type.
“THAT I think honestly, that decision might’ve been them going, ‘We have time and energy to create a wig don’t. Tomorrow at work we surely got to shoot him,’” explained Simmons. “So, J. Jonah Jameson either lost his hair within the last few years, or perhaps a hairpiece had been worn by him the complete time. I don’t know, you select.”
Spidey fans remember all too well the actor’s spot-on portrayal of the type in Sam Raimi’s original trilogy of films, so that it was cool to see Simmons reprise a job he was clearly born to play. Hopefully, there’s more ahead!
