J. Jonah Jameson is one of the most charismatic characters in the “Spider-Man” franchise and was immortalized by JK Simmons in the trilogy directed by Sam Raimi between 2002 and 2007.
No wonder the star was asked to reprise the role of Editor-in-Chief of The Daily Clarim in “Spider-Man: Far from Home”.
For those curious about how the star landed the role, a fan page on Twitter posted a rare video showing Simmons auditioning for the hero’s debut film.
The 42-second video shows the star reproducing Jameson’s signature speeches and gestures, still without the wig worn during the recordings.

Now that Jameson is part of the MCU, many fans are wondering if the character will have a bigger role in Marvel’s future on the big screen.
During an interview with Collider, Simmons was asked the same question, to which he answered:
“There is a small chance, we are still talking about it and I will not say anything definitive for the moment. In fact, I don’t know if I can. But I can say I’m very optimistic about JJ Jameson’s future in the MCU.
Earlier last year, the star previously revealed on Sirius XM radio that he had signed a contract with Sony and Marvel to appear in other studio films.
He even made sure his next scene as Jameson was taped already.
“Well, it was a secret, but I’ve already shot another scene as JJ Jameson. With that, we can conclude that there is a future for the character after so many years of playtime. appearance in “Spider-Man: Back Home” was not the last, I can guarantee it.
Unfortunately, he hasn’t revealed which movie will be Jameson’s next appearance.
Meanwhile, it’s worth remembering that “Spider-Man: No Return Home” will be released on December 16, 2021:
The film is expected to follow Peter Parker’s new battle after being publicly exposed by J. Jonah Jameson at the end of “Spider-Man: Away from Home”.
