Does Jim Carrey Have A Role In THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2?

An unsubstantiated rumor has actually gained a bit of credibility thanks to an on-set pic of the Kick-Ass 2 actor taken with a fan! Could Carrey have a cameo in Marc Webb's Spidey sequel..as yet another villain perhaps?

This all started with a user on the SHH forums claiming that he had some inside info on The Amazing Spider-Man sequel thanks to a friend close to the production. Among other things, he reckoned a well known actor had a role in the movie that nobody had heard about yet, but said he wouldn't reveal who it was on the forums. Well of course that didn't last too long -- it was Jim Carrey! So far so where's your proof right? Well, we may just have it right here..






As you can see Carrey was actually snapped on set back in March, but it went under our radar until Comicbook.com did some digging. Is this proof that he'll have a role or just a massive coincidence? It definitely lends some credence to the rumor at the very least -- but if he is in the movie, who could he be playing? The most popular theories seem to be Kletus Kassady (who would eventually become Carnage), Mysterio, or J.J. Jameson. What do you guys think? We were a couple of characters short for the Sinister Six after all!

I wonder if he really is going to play Kletus Cassidy.
soda9 - 8/11/2013, 9:53 AM
@LEVITKUZ Well there ya go! :)

Anyways, I'm calling either Cletus (not Carnage) or Quentin Beck (not Mysterio). But I'm leaning more towards Cletus since he filmed in March, which was when they filmed at Ravencroft.
BANEofExistence - 8/11/2013, 9:54 AM
I hope he is Cletus Cassidy!
SuperbatSpider1003 - 8/11/2013, 9:57 AM
HOPE HE'S CLETUS CASSIDY
soda9 - 8/11/2013, 9:58 AM
If he's Beck then there's definitely no doubt that they are setting up THE SINISTER SIX!
Zeek - 8/11/2013, 9:58 AM
Mysterio please
MrMartinMarvel - 8/11/2013, 10:04 AM
Kletus Cassidy would probably be too "violent" for his tastes. ;)
spidey1994 - 8/11/2013, 10:05 AM
CLETUS [frick]ING KASADY!!!!!! MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!!!!!! CARNAGE IS COMING BITCHES!!!!! :D
PC04 - 8/11/2013, 10:05 AM
I've been saying for YEARS that Jim Carrey should be Carnage! Not that he will be but I think many people would agree.

@Zeek- Mysterio would be really good for Jim too.

Call it a HUGE stretch but I think if Green Goblin wasn't cast already, Jim would be a good Gobby.
DudeGuyMan - 8/11/2013, 10:06 AM
So this IS confirmed!



I kid. Jim could be a number of people. My best guess is Adrian Toomes (AKA Vulture). I think I recall Webb mentioning him a while back and Jim could fill the role perfectly.
THORGodOfThunder - 8/11/2013, 10:06 AM
He would be a wicked Carnage!!
GodzillaKart - 8/11/2013, 10:07 AM
After Carrey's recent comments about violence in Kick Ass 2, I have a hard time imagining that he is Cletus Cassidy.
DudeGuyMan - 8/11/2013, 10:09 AM
asavagevandal - 8/11/2013, 10:10 AM
Are we sure he's in the movie, or did he just stop by the set?
whoa123 - 8/11/2013, 10:10 AM
If he would be Carnage, wouldn't that be contradictory to what he said in Kick-Ass 2?
Bread - 8/11/2013, 10:11 AM
Cassidy is a goddamn serial killer, Jim would'nt do that after what he said about the violence in Kick Ass 2. It would be funny to see him a JJJ though.
Bread - 8/11/2013, 10:12 AM
*wouldn't
thewonderer - 8/11/2013, 10:14 AM
Carnage but no venom? Dafuq
PC04 - 8/11/2013, 10:15 AM
@TankD- You're talking like you're absolutely sure he's playing Cletus. Do you know something everyone else doesn't?

How we wait to get some FACTS first.

spidey1994 - 8/11/2013, 10:16 AM
@thewonderer He'll be Cletus Kasady NOT Carnage yet.
BatManHeisenberg - 8/11/2013, 10:16 AM
I really doubt that he is a character. He might just be a fan of spidey or something.
RorMachine - 8/11/2013, 10:16 AM
He MAY just have been on set for another reason, but coupled with the SHH user's claims..it's worth reporting as a rumor at the very least.
jimoakley666 - 8/11/2013, 10:16 AM
Not JJJ!
DudeGuyMan - 8/11/2013, 10:17 AM
@thewonderer

If he's playing Cletus Kasady he'll probably just be playing him before he bonds with Carnage.

Dr. Michael Morbius (Morbius)
wcwpoet - 8/11/2013, 10:18 AM
That was sheer coincidence, nothing more than that.
AlanWarlock - 8/11/2013, 10:19 AM
Let's hope it was just a visit.
KeefNCookies - 8/11/2013, 10:20 AM
Chameleon would be the best fit IMO.

The guy who bailed on KickAss2 due to violence playing Casady..? You all do realize how idiotic this sounds, dont you?
ShogunNevets - 8/11/2013, 10:21 AM
He should be Kassidy, but not Carnage (yet)
theowl - 8/11/2013, 10:22 AM
I hope he is playing Cassidy! I hope we just get a look of him in he's prison cell at Ravencroft. Just can't see Carnage show up in a spider-man movie without Venom..
Lhornbk - 8/11/2013, 10:22 AM
I'm sorry, but I HATE Jim Carrey. He was terrible, terrible as the Riddler. And someone wants him to be Joker? No, just no. I don't care that much about Spiderman, but he definitely would not help the film.
IIIAdamantiumIII - 8/11/2013, 10:23 AM
Jim could really do wonders with a spider-man villain .
HOTSHOT - 8/11/2013, 10:24 AM
If this is true then I'm sold. Carrey's the man! Please be Cassidy :D
TheFox - 8/11/2013, 10:25 AM
Or-- y'know-- he could just be visiting the set because he's a Spider-Man fan. Or to hang out with Jamie Foxx, since they worked together before on In Living Color and may well be friends. Or any number of other, much more plausible explanations.

Just a thought.

Azazel1 - 8/11/2013, 10:25 AM
too violent for him

[frick] him and his bullshit
Christuffer - 8/11/2013, 10:25 AM
Cassidy would be amazing
Rogers - 8/11/2013, 10:26 AM
spidey 2 set? i dont think so

DudeGuyMan - 8/11/2013, 10:26 AM
@KeefNCookies

I doubt he'd be playing Chameleon because Webb hasn't said anything about him. Plus, I'm pretty sure adding anoher villain would completely bog this movie. Kasady's the best bet. He could be imprisoned at Ravencroft for all the extracurricular murdering he's been doing. A sweet cameo It would be!
AxlKomix - 8/11/2013, 10:27 AM
To speculate with the rest of you on the violence thing, Carnage is a different kind of violence. True, Kasady is a serial, but in most interpretations we see him already imprisoned; we wouldn't see Carrey (if he were Kasady) killing anyone. That said, once he turns into Carnage, he stops being human and becomes more of an animal, so we wouldn't see any kind of violence that would exemplify the sort of violence that Carrey is against (i.e. people killing each other with guns and whatnot). All in all, TASM is a PG-13 franchise; none the films would show an extreme amount of violence anyway.
