JUSTICE LEAGUE's J.K. Simmons Says He's Open To Returning To The New SPIDER-MAN Franchise As J.J. Jameson

J.K. Simmons moved on from J. Jonah Jameson long ago and will now appear as Jim Gordon in Justice League, but the actor says he would still be open to returning to the Spider-Man franchise at some point...

J.K. Simmons is arguably best known for appearing as the hilariously volatile J.J. Jameson in Sam Raimi's original Spider-Man trilogy, but he's now set to put his stamp on another classic comic book supporting character when he debuts as Commissioner Jim Gordon in Justice League.

Does this mean all hope of seeing him return as Jameson is lost?

During an interview with ET, Simmons was asked that very question, and it sounds like the Academy Award-winning actor would be on board should the opportunity arise.


"I never say never. I mean, you know, obviously I had an amazing time with Sam Raimi on those movies, and Tobey [Maguire] and everybody. That was a great great time, and huge for my career and my life, and just pure fun. If there were an opportunity to revisit that…. I don’t know, though… how old is Spider-Man going to be if J. Jonah Jameson is this old?"

Of course, bringing Simmons back as J.J. wouldn't make a whole lot of sense considering the franchise is now on its second reboot with Marvel/Sony's Spider-Man: Homecoming, but we don't think fans would kick up too much of a fuss if he were to reprise the role without any expalanation. 

After all, Marc Webb admitted that the only reason the Daily Bugle boss wasn't featured in his Amazing Spider-Man movies was because he didn't want to cast someone else in the role after Simmons' acclaimed performances.

What do you guys think? Would you be game for Simmons to return as Jameson in the new Spidey flicks? Sound off below.
