10 Perfect Casting Choices To Support Tom Holland’s Spider-Man

10. J. Jonah Jameson – J.K. Simmons

Sony Pictures

With the Civil War storyline coming into play, Marvel will need a strong media figure to take a stand either for or against the superhuman registration act, and no one is quite as outspoken as the loud mouthed editor-in-chief of the Daily Bugle J. Jonah Jameson.

J.K. Simmons portrayal of Jameson in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy is arguably the most popular supporting role ever cast in a superhero film. It was so good that the Amazing Spider-Man series tip toed around the very idea of Jameson and the Daily Bugle, instead introducing the character through e-mails and passing mentions rather than risk casting someone who couldn’t escape Simmons’ shadow.

There is a small issue of continuity, but it’s quite possible that everyone will happily turn a blind eye if Simmons was recast in the role. It was so flawless the first time round it seems foolish to go in search of someone else when the perfect candidate has openly stated he’s more than willing to return.

This is a no brainer really.
