Everyone remembers Tom Holland’s spectacular performance in Marvel Studios’ Spider-Man series and Avengers films, but how the world came to love Spider-Man was something that happened way back in 2002, and the first Peter Parker that we fell in love with was the legendary Tobey Maguire. The Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy was one of the most beloved superhero films of the decade. It was also a window into the future of what superhero films can achieve when executed with finesse.
The other character that the fandom couldn’t help but love or hate was Peter Parker’s editor-in-chief of The Daily Bugle and a pain in the web shooters for Spider-Man, J. Jonah Jameson.
From the recent images from Sony Pictures’ upcoming Madame Web sets, we are getting subtle hints about the inclusion of The Daily Bugle in the film, which has opened the possibility of the audience to witness J.K Simmons as the grumpy Spider-Man critic that J. Jonah Jameson was once again!
J.K Simmons Might Return To Play J. Jonah Jameson In Madame Web
Madame Web is going to be the next addition by Sony Pictures to its version of the Spiderverse films, and it’s all set to bring a lot of familiar faces from the Spider-Man comics as well as the films that preceded it before, becoming one of the most anticipated films of the year, Madame Web will have to prove its worth to Sony Pictures, or else it might become the last-ditch effort for the studio to create its own cinematic universe with the characters from Spider-Man Comics. Thankfully, bringing in some familiar faces always tends to help this cause.
In a recent post made by @SpiderMan3News, we are presented with images from the set of Madame Web, where we can see that the newspaper dispenser has the logo of The Daily Bugle clearly visible. This post, along with many others are clear indicators that we will be seeing a lot of Bugle’s influence in the film. But The Daily Bugle is not complete without its resident Spider-Man hater, is it? Madame Web might also bring back Sam Raimi’s version of J. Jonah Jameson into this new world of Spider-Man, and thus, J.K Simmons might reprise his role as the editor-in-chief.

J.K Simmons played the role of J. Jonah Jameson in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy and was praised for his comic-accurate depiction of the character. With the news of the addition of The Daily Bugle in Madame Web now confirmed, people have been speculating about whether J.K Simmons will join the cast and reprise the role of Jameson once more. In Venom, we were introduced to Jameson’s son as the astronaut who had initially made contact with the asteroid that housed the symbiote. Since the new Spiderverse is connected to each other, it won’t be a surprise to see J. Jonah Jameson once more.
Who Is Madame Web?
Madame Web is a fictional character appearing in the Spider-Man comics who is a cosmo-sentient being that has tasked herself to look after Spider-Men from different dimensions of the multiverse. She performed an arcane ritual that granted her immortality, which she now wields to help and guide the Spider-Men and Spider-Women of all the realities scattered throughout the Spider-Man multiverse, also known as The Web Of Life. Dakota Johnson is all set to become part of the film as the titular protagonist of the project.
