Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man films still hold a special place in the hearts of Spider-Man fans, and one of the things that was universally praised regarding the films is J.K. Simmons’ portrayal of J. Jonah Jameson.
Simmons knocked it out of the park and totally nailed the role, and the role has yet to be recast since Sam Raimi’s trilogy came to an end.
J.K. Simmons recently joined the DCEU, and he’ll be making his debut as Jim Gordon in “Justice League.” But that doesn’t mean he won’t appear in a Marvel film in the future.
Simmons was recently asked during an interview with Entertainment Tonight if he would be willing to play J. Jonah Jameson once again, and he admitted that if an opportunity came up to revisit that world it be an attractive possibility.
“Never say never,” Simmons said, coyly. “I had an amazing time with Sam Raimi and those movies… that was a great, great time and huge for my career and my life and just pure fun.”
Even though he played the character in a different film franchise, it’s certainly not that crazy to think that he could play Jameson once again as Marvel seems to have no problem paying tribute to films from the past.
You can catch Simmons as Jim Gordon when “Justice League” opens on November 17, 2017.
