Reason Behind the Change in J. Jonah Jameson in Spider-Man: Far From Home Revealed by the Star


The fans could not hold in their excitement and happiness, seeing the character of J. Jonah Jameson, from the 2000s trilogy series, in the post-credits scene of Spider-Man: Far From Home.

JK Simmons had played the role of this highly temperamental editor of the local newspaper, Daily Bugle, in the very first installments of the Spider-Man movies, who simply hunted for pictures of the superhero and messiah of the city, in action, before anybody else could.

In the post-credit scene of Spider-Man: Far From Home, Simmons is seen portraying the role of an aged Jameson, who is currently the anchor “on a controversial online version of the Bugle”. Simmons had explained the huge and substantial changes in his character, in an interview,

“The only thing we didn’t a hundred percent see eye to eye on, I think, was how much is this character going to be the character from, I think, the comic books and from the Sam Raimi original trilogy, and how much do we want to evolve it and to have it be more contemporary or more… you know.

I was very attached to what I had done previously for a variety of reasons. So I guess the compromise ended up being no hair. Which I think honestly, that decision might’ve just been them going, ‘We don’t have time to make a wig.

We got to shoot him tomorrow in the office’. So, J. Jonah Jameson either lost his hair in the last few years, or he was wearing a hairpiece the whole time. I don’t know, you pick”. Simmons has also reportedly, hinted at various other cameos, implying that the fans will get to see more of Jameson in upcoming Spider-Man installments.

The actor claimed, “We have, assuming that movie theatres reopen and people are back in movie theatres some time in the next… ever, and if not, I guess we’ll see it on our TVs at home.

There is one more JJJ appearance in the can, and from what I’m hearing, there is a plan for yet another one”.
