J.K. Simmons was recently nominated for an Oscar for his role in Whiplash, but it seems that one of his previous characters remains firmly on people’s minds.
Simmons of course played Daily Bugle editor in chief J. Jonah Jameson in the Sam Raimi Spider-Man movies, and during an appearance on The Howard Stern Show, he was once asked again if he’d be reprising the role for a future Spidey movie.
Simmons replied, “I just heard that we… that that’s a possibility”, before adding that he would “absolutely” come back if asked.
If Simmons is to return, we have no idea at this point whether that would be in The Amazing Spider-Man 3, a re-rebooted Spider-Man, or as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, given the current state of Sony’s superhero franchise.
