J.K. Simmons has shared more about this potential return to the Spider-Man franchise. After previously sharing his return would be possible, the actor spilled some more information during an interview SiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Show.
When asked about the return he said, “Yeah, that’s the short answer,” Simmons said. “There is a future for J. Jonah Jameson after a several year hiatus. Obviously, I showed up very briefly for those who are wise enough to stay through the end credits of Far From Home, there was a brief JJJ appearance there.”
Simmons first appeared as J. Jonah Jameson in the 2002’s Spider-Man movie and continued the role through the Sam Raimi helmed trilogy. He made a surprise appearance in 2019 Spider-Man: Far From Home reprising his role as J. Jonah Jameson but instead of running a newspaper, he was running a website with the Daily Bugle name. This caused fans to speculate whether it meant the multiverse plot would be introduced further or if it was just an incarnation of the character. Simmons is the only actor so far to appear in both the 2000s Spider-Man films and in the MCU.
Sony’s next releases include Morbius and Venom: Let There Be Carnage. Morbius included Spider-Man Easter Eggs in its trailer and also showed Michael Keaton is reprising his role as Adrian Toomes from Spider-Man: Homecoming which means it takes place in Tom Holland’s Spider-Man timeline. It could also mean Simmons next cameo could appear in these films.
With the pandemic shuffling release dates, the third installment is set to release in November 2021.
