Is Jim Carrey Playing Carnage or J. Jonah Jameson in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’?

Despite his stance on violence, actor Jim Carrey may be continuing his work in the very hyper-violent world of comic book movies. Its being revealed this morning that the Kick-Ass 2 star was on the set of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 earlier in the year. He was there during filming, but was he taking part in that filming? Or simply visiting? A super fan named Danny Browne snapped this picture on set.

"It's Jim Carrey! #sorrynotsorry he came to the spiderman set today! I wonder what he's doing there!!!"

This tweet from March had gone unnoticed until an insider from the production started hinting that a major comedic actor had taken a minor role in the film that would lead to something bigger in The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man 4.

With the Sinister Six rumored to be coming in future movies, its being speculated that Jim Carrey will make a cameo as Kletus Kassady in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 before turning into Carnage as the series continues. The other most logical character is that of J. Jonah Jameson, Peter's boss at the Bugle. What do you think? Who should Jim Carrey play in The Amazing Spider-Man franchise? Or should he just stay away from violent comic book movies all together?

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was released May 2nd, 2014.

        I bet he can laugh like Cletus Kasady! But Robert Knepper is perfect for the role of Carnage, but I don't know about being Cletus Kasady.

          I still like Jim however I can't see him in violent comic book adaptions.

          I enjoyed him when he did The Riddler, but it was the way he portrayed the character that impressed me.

          These newer version of spiderman makes me wish that Spiderman 4 happened.

            He'd be good as kletus but i suppose its very doubtful that carnage will be in any of the spiderman movies anytime soon...plus these new spiderman movies are rubbish anyway

              What about ANYTHING in this article points to him playing Jameson? Oh, I remember, a stupid title used to grab attention. F*ck you, Orange.

                  Huh, Jim Carrey almost condemned his violent role in Kick-Ass 2, I don't see why he would play Carnage whom is a character of great violence, even the name is of violence

                    @therealGoku ...If they water down Carnage Im for sure gonna be pissed off...Maximum Carnage is one of my most favorite storylines growing up, hes a pyschotic killer and they better not mess with that fact and make him likable for the kiddies.

                            The reason they are hinting Carnage, is because he was rumored to play him before in the now cancelled Spiderman 4

                                I cannot imagine seeing Jim Jarrey in a Spider-Man movie.

                                      I haven't been a huge fan of their casting for these new Spider-Man movies.

                                        I think he would make a good Carnage, Jim is a good actor, all he has to do for this role is just be downright creepy.
