MTV has confirmed that filming on Spider-Man 4 will commence in 2010 and J.K. Simmons will be returning as Daily Bugle publisher J. Jonah Jameson.

"We've definitely brainstormed ideas for Triple-J, but I have no desire to make Triple-J more of the focus of those movies," J.K. Simmons said. "The amount that I did in 1, 2 and 3, is just exactly right. Like be the wolf. Come in, blow in, do a week, blow out, be the comic relief, and hit the road. And let Tobey and everybody else do the heavy lifting."
