J.K. Simmons could appear in Spider-Man 3 as Daily Bugle editor J. Jonah Jameson. The celebrity stunned fans when he emerged in Spider-Man: Far From Home. Since then, Marvel Cinematic Universe devotees have wondered whether he will be making a return. In a new interview, the actor discusses possible forthcoming appearances in the MCU while also reflecting on his first audition for Sam Raimi’s initial Spider-Man installment.
Mysterio framed Peter Parker in the conclusion of Spider-Man: Far From Home and J. Jonah Jameson delivered the information to the entire world. Since then, Marvel and Sony Studios put up a Daily Bugle website that is fictional in the editor. For many, this demonstrates that J.K. Simmons will be returning. Simmons had this to say about anticipating his return.
“I don’t know if I would use the word expect… It’s good to have the chance, as these things evolve, to be one of the holdovers from the former edition.”
While J.K. Simmons isn’t revealing much, it’s been verified that he signed on for numerous movies, although the studio retains the choice as to whether they’ll bring him back or not. Marvel Studios and Sony are operating in secrecy, so we’re not going to find any concrete response from anybody, especially this early in the development of Spider-Man 3. With that being said, Simmons also took some time to reflect on his audition for Sony. He clarifies.
“The manufacturers and the people at Sony, they had to be convinced, since obviously, there were plenty of much more high-profile celebrities they had in mind that would help with the box office… It was quite nerve-wracking.”
In the long run, J.K. Simmons proved to be a wonderful fit for the function of J. Jonah Jameson. But, it does not sound as the audition process was very easy. He recalled the scene he needed to browse through and it sounds like every actor’s nightmare. It is possible to see what Simmons had to say regarding his audition.
“It included a scene in which the Green Goblin breaks through the chimney and picks up me from the throat and lifts me in the air, and so is strangling me. I am holding the script pages, reading the scene on the audition, but at the same time, attempting to… pretending I am being lifted by the throat and choked.”
Spider-Man 3 was supposed to go into production this summer, but it does not look like that’s going to take place, for obvious reasons. Cities across the USA starting Hollywood productions upward again and are starting to explore movie theaters that are opening, but not everyone is prepared for that to take place. Director Spike Lee certainly isn’t prepared to return to work and that he won’t be heading into a movie theater. The meeting with J.K. Simmons was originally conducted by People.
