J. Jonah Jameson NOT in SPIDER-MAN Reboot?

     January 19, 2011

Adding to the bevy of comic-book news today is the report that the character of J. Jonah Jameson will not appear in Marc Webb’s Spider-Man reboot. The iconic character, so perfectly portrayed by J.K. Simmons in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man films, is the editor-in-chief of the Daily Bugle where he frequently torments that rascal of a photographer Peter Parker.  IGN reports that reliable sources tell them that the character is not a part of the currently filming Spidey reboot.

This is not to say that Jameson won’t appear in the sure-to-be-numerous sequels, but as of now it looks like the first flick will be Jameson-less. Personally, I don’t find this news vey upsetting. Simmons’ portrayal of Jameson was so spot-on that replacing him and re-introducing the character is gonna be one hell of a task.  The Spider-Man reboot stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen, Sally Field and Denis Leary. The film hits theaters in 3D on July 3rd 2012.
