J.K. Simmons Under Contract to Return in Future Spider-Man Films as J. Jonah Jameson. Recently, J.K. Simmons spoke with PeopleTV about his reappearance as J. Jonah Jameson at the end of Spider-Man: Far From Home and if fans can expect to see him in the next Spider-Man film.
“I don’t know if I would use the word expect,” Simmons replied. “When we signed on for the first movie we signed a contract to do two sequels as well. Which, that’s always a one-sided, well not always but in my case, a one-sided contract where you’re committed to do it, but they’re not necessarily committed to use your character in the ensuing movies. It was great to have the opportunity as these things evolve to be one of the holdovers from the previous version.”
To keep interest in the franchise going and to celebrate the release of Spider-Man: Far From Home on Digital and with the DVD/Blu-ray, Sony Pictures created a “real life” The Daily Bugle, in the form of an online network called: thedailybugle.net. The fully functioning website shares a special video from none other than J. Jonah Jameson himself, J.K. Simmons, sharing his take on Spider-Man and Mysterio.
The website also features stories based on the incidents in Spider-Man: Far From Home, including articles about Night Monkey, the missing Hydro-Man, and even the recent “raid” on Area 51. (Yes, really)
J. K. Simmons reprised his role as J. Jonah Jameson from the original Spider-Man trilogy starring Toby Maguire and Kristen Dunst for Spider-Man: Far From Home and appeared at the end of the film to tell the world a great BIG twisted secret. The identity of Spider-Man!
