‘Spider-Man’: J.K. Simmons May Return as J. Jonah Jameson

One character The Amazing Spider-Man never got around to showing was fan-favorite J. Jonah Jameson, Peter's boss at the Daily Bugle. While it was rumored that Jim Carrey might play a new version of Jameson in the big screen reboot, there were also plenty of rumblings that J.K. Simmons may reprise the iconic role. Now, the actor has backed up these rumors, claiming he's heard about the possibility of a new project that could see him return.

This is interesting, not just because he might return, but also because he seems to indicate that another Spider-Man movie is currently in the works. As everyone knows by now, The Amazing Spider-Man 3 was put on ice because The Amazing Spider-Man 2 did not perform as expected at the box office, and it was not well-liked by fans or critics. Is Sony planning to announce The Amazing Spider-Man 3 soon? Possibly a reboot? Or is J.K. Simmons talking about The Sinister Six spinoff, which, as far as we know, is still set for November 2016? Either way you slice it, having J.K. Simmons back as J. Jonah Jameson should make a lot of people very happy.

‘Spider-Man’ Reboot Details Reveal Marvel and Sony's Plan

While the Sony hack appears to be over for the time being, more information is still coming forward that was leaked from various emails and documents from deep within the studio. By this point, everyone knows that Marvel was working hard to make a deal with Sony to bring Spider-Man into Captain America: Civil War. That deal never happened, but more details on exactly what was to take place have emerged, and they shed some light on the proposed The Amazing Spider-Man reboot that would have seen Marvel and Sony working close together. It is believed that Sony is still ready to reboot the franchise without Andrew Garfield in the lead.

Some of this new information both confirms and contradicts what we've heard in the recent past. It is speculated by CBM that some of the past information was made up by foreign bloggers looking to cash in on the Sony hack by publishing erroneous information. That has not been confirmed.

Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. When Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents' disappearance - leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors (Ifans), his father's former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors' alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.
