Entertainment Weekly is reporting that J.K. Simmons (Justice League, Spider-Man) has signed on for more MCU Spider-Man films.
Fan we’re shocked to find out Simmons reprised as J. Jonah Jameson at the end of Spider-Man: Far From Home, which he made famous in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man films. Upon his return, he exploits Peter Parker, conforming he’s Spider-Man. The film left on this massive cliffhanger and set up a unique dilemma for future films.
During the interview for PeopleTV’s Couch Surfing, Simmons claimed that fans shouldn’t “expect” him in the future; however, he confirms he signed a multi-picture deal. “It’s great to have the opportunity, as these things evolve, to be one of the holdovers from the previous version.”
Hopefully we get to see more of Jameson in future films. What do you guys think? Let us know over on Twitter!
Spider-Man: Homecoming and Far From Home screenwriters Erik Sommars and Chris McKenna are returning to write the third film, with Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal producing. The majority of the cast is expected to return including Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jon Favreau, Jacob Batalon, Tony Revelori, Angourie Rice, Martin Starr, and J.B. Smoove. It is unknown, if Jake Gyllenhaal will return as Quentin Beck aka Mysterio.
The next film in the Spider-Man trilogy hits theaters November 5, 2021. It’s expected to start production in July.
