J.K. Simmons reprised his role of J. Jonah Jameson from the beloved Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy for Spider-Man: Far From Home‘s end credits sequence, an appearance which will inevitably lead to more. Simmons is portraying a new version of the same character as this Marvel Cinematic Universe portrayal is disconnected from that of the original Spider-Man trilogy. The character remains, however, similarly grounded in his Marvel Comics roots and defining traits. While Simmons is going to be coming back for the third Spider-Man movie starring Tom Holland, it sounds like he has already filmed another appearance in a different movie.
Simmons was recently asked if there is more of his J. Jonah Jameson on the way. “Yeah, that’s the short answer,” Simmons said in an interview. “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.”
This is not surprising. The man in charge of the Daily Bugle is a key component of Spider-Man stories in comics. However, by the sound of it, he may be popping up elsewhere in the live-action Spider-Verse which is slowly being built out. “We have, assuming that movie theaters reopen and people are back in movie theaters sometime in the next whatever and if not we’ll see it on our TV’s at home, there is one more JJJ appearance in the can and from what I’m hearing there is a plan for yet another one,” Simmons said.
