WATCH: Amazing Spider-man 2 director talks about JJ Jameson appearing in future movies

April 22nd, 2014 by Marc Comments

Ok, so we’ve seen Amazing Spider-man 2 and, being honest, we loved as much as we didn’t, it was a movie of highs and lows, and personally, one of the things I liked most was the little nods to Daily Bugle Editor-In-Chief, JJ Jameson, existing in this universe.

But, we never actually saw him – although we did hear from him and, to be honest, I could just picture JK Simmons from the Sam Raimi movies, sitting at his desk, sending out messages. I was never a fan of the Sam Raimi movies, but oh my,  I loved Simmons’ JJ.

Anyway, in a recent Google Hangout (below) the cast and director appeared to talk all things Spider-man and one of those things was JJ. Director Marc Webb said: “It was more easy to accept a new Spider-Man than someone who could out do J.K. Simmons in that role, he is so iconic. That’s something we’ve really talked about. Obviously I love that character because he poses such an interesting dilemma for Spider-Man. The answer is I don’t know, but I think you can expect to see him in the future.”

Check out the full chat below and scroll on down for a special little treat for JJ fans plus a fun look at Spidey’s outfits through his history…

For a little bonus, here’s JJ’s top moments from the Sam Raimi movies… we pity the man hired to take this role over

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
