Despite the main roles in the Spider-Man reboot being filled fans have still been wondering who will play Daily Bugle chief J. Jonah Jameson, played masterfullly by J.K. Simmons in the trilogy. Despite some casting speculation nothing has been confirmed, but now IGN has cleared things up.
The site did some digging and it turns out…J. Jonah Jameson won’t even be in Marc Webb’s movie.
The new Spider-Man movie has been filming for a few weeks now, and there’s still been no word on who has been cast as Peter Parker’s boss, Daily Bugle chief J. Jonah Jameson.
This prompted us to do a little digging and we found out from very reliable sources that it’s because … J. Jonah Jameson won’t be in the movie. That’s right, Spidey fans. We’ve confirmed that no one will be growling “Parker!” in this 3D reboot.
J.K. Simmons nailed the character and was the comic relief of Sam Raimi’s movies, but I guess Webb didn’t find the need to include the character. Maybe the reboot will be a bit more serious in tone with no comedic characters, or maybe J. Jonah Jameson will be introduced in future films.
