J. Jonah Jameson Would Have Been Demoted in Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man 4"

Posted: January 24th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
J. Jonah Jameson Would Have Been Demoted in Sam RaimiSubmit Comment
MTV caught up with JK Simmons, who revealed that his "Spider-Man" character (Daily Bugle head J Jonah Jameson) would have had a bigger role in the fourth installment if Sam Raimi never left the franchise.

"J. Jonah Jameson was going to be somehow exiled or disgraced or demoted and end up in some little cubicle somewhere and be railing, even more than usual, against the world," he explained.

Simmons added that before everything fell apart he and Raimi had several meetings together to discuss the script. The director mentioned that the plan was to make three more "Spider-Man" films.

Simmons went on to joke about how disappointed he was when Sony decided to reboot the franchise. "I'm still reeling from the rug being pulled out of us," he said. "I had just bought a house I can't afford."

He's an awesome actor and really did the J Jonah Jameson part SPOT ON. I wish they would use him for the reboot... I don't even see the Jameson character on the list of actors http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0948470/fullcredits#cast Damn!

I feel your pain Simmons. It was rather a shock to a lot of people. I'm sorry but everything about this reboot screams ridiculous.

J. Jonah Jameson is Peter Parker father in Sam Raimi's Spider-man 4

I'm not feeling that about JJJ being demoted. I'm sure Simmons would have made it funny, but JJJ should always be top dog.

@dbreuning: Jameson will not feature in the Spiderman-reboot. WP had an article about it some weeks ago. Sad day, indeed.

One of the absolute best casting decisions (Simmons as Jameson: spot on!) ever was tossed aside so Sony could make one of the gayest little comic book films in all of cinematic history.

Good job, you greedy little *ssholes.

That would be a good plot of a film, so I hope they recycle the diea eventually. In the old stories, Jameson really goes off the deep end and helps to fund the creation of Scorpion and the Spider-Slayers to kill Spider-Man. He eventually comes to his senses, and he and Spidey agree to disagree. But that would be some great character development.
In the Ultimate version, Jameson turns into the d*ckhead only after his son dies in a shuttle explosion and he begins to blame the capes.

I find it difficult to call one Spider-Man suit gayer than another. Every suit he's ever worn (sabe the symbiote) was a fashion nightmare.

If that's the most interesting part of the script maybe a reboot is for the best. Wait...no it isn't, it's an attempt to ,make the same movies cheaper. Thanks Sony.

They really should find a way to put him in there, even if it's only for a few scenes.

We're all there with you, JK.

Just to restate what others have said, he was dead perfect as JJJ in the three Raimi films, and it's truly a shame he won't be part of the new series. Just another reaosn not to watch.

Actually, he's good in everything he does, even Law and Order and those insurance commercials.
