There is little doubt that J.K. Simmons' surprise cameo in Spider-Man: Far From Home was one of the most awesome things that happened last year. But could that little appearance lead to J. Jonah Jameson showing up again in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? The Justice League star has just confirmed that he has signed on to work on more MCU films in the future.
Simmons recently spoke to PeopleTV's Couch Surfing where he was asked if fans can expect to see him in Spider-Man 3. Interestingly, his response somehow confirmed that and so much more.
"I don't know if I would use the word expect," Simmons said before adding, "When we signed on for the first movie, we signed a contract to do two sequels as well. Which is always - I guess not always, but in my case - a one-sided contract where you're committed to do it, but they're not necessarily committed to use your character in ensuing movies."
That's great news for fans who are hoping to see the original J. Jonah interacting with Tom Holland's Peter Parker. Not surprisingly, Simmons is just as delighted to continue playing the iconic comic book character that he portrayed in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy.
"It's great to have the opportunity, as these things evolve, to be one of the holdovers from the previous version," Simmons admitted.
For now, the premise of Spider-Man 3 has not yet been revealed. Additionally, we're still uncertain if Simmons will play a larger role in the sequel. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
The still-untitled Spider-Man 3 is scheduled for release on November 5, 2021.
