During an interview onSiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Show, the Oscar-winning actor said he has already filmed the character for one upcoming project and plans to play him at least one more time beyond that.
“Well yeah, [I’ll be back as Jameson] that’s the short answer,” Simmons told his host. “There is a future for J. Jonah Jameson after a several-year hiatus. He showed up very briefly for those who were wise enough to stay through the credits of Far From Home. … There is one more JJJ appearance in the can, and from what I’m hearing there’s a plan for yet another. So hopefully JJJ will continue now and forever.”
Simmons played the classic comic book character for the first time in 2002’s Spider-Man, appearing in all three films that starred Tobey Maguire as the web-slinger. At that time, the Spider-Man-hating JJJ was the editor-in-chief of The Daily Bugle, where Peter Parker worked as the photojournalist, just like in the comics.
In 2019’s Far From Home, Simmons reprised Jameson as no longer a newspaperman, but rather a far-right radio show host a la Alex Jones.
Simmons is the only actor from the 2000s Spider-Man films to appear in the Disney MCU.
