J. Jonah Jameson has something to say in the newest Daily Bugle viral blog

1 year agoby:

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 viral site The Daily Bugle has been updated once again, and this time we get to hear from the man who runs the famous newspaper from the comics: J. Jonah Jameson. The character won't be in the new movie (unless it is being kept a secret), but he is still doing what he does best: being a douche to Spider-Man. So what's J. Jonah Jameson's main beef with Spidey? Property damage.

An Editorial from Daily Bugle publisher J. Jonah Jameson

Recently, Spider-Man got involved in the apprehension of a carjacker. The web he spun blocking the thief’s path on East 61st Street forced the driver to divert to First Avenue. While driving in the wrong direction, the carjacker hit four cars, one of which crashed through the front of a coffee shop…one of those places that serves that stupid latte art Melissa Hutchins loves so much. Fortunately, no one was hurt, but police estimate over four hundred thousand in damages were incurred.

Of course, civilians applauded as the wall-crawling vigilante pulled the thief out of his damaged car. Did any of them notice the damage left in Spider-Man’s wake?

Last December, Spider-Man pursued a bank robber named Herman Schultz who was using homemade weapons that emitted vibrational shock waves. Over two hundred photos of Schultz, hanging upside down from a twisted street light in a cocoon of webbing, were posted online. Including several with police officers (all of whom were reprimanded).

Did anyone consider that during Spider-Man’s prolonged pursuit and apprehension of Schultz, a city bus, a police car, two streetlights, a fire hydrant and twenty feet of sidewalk were destroyed? Estimated damage: $2.8 million dollars.

And who’s paying for Spider-Man’s actions? I am. You are. And every other taxpayer in this city. It’s clear Spider-Man’s results do not justify the reckless methods he employs. When is he going to finally realize this and just stop?

If J. Jonah Jameson doesn't like the damage Spider-Man has caused in his city, imagine the scathing editorial he would have released if he worked for The Daily Planet in MAN OF STEEL. I think it's kind of strange Jameson won't be in the new movie since he plays such a big part in the comics, however I'm sure he'll be in one of the planned sequels. He has to, right?

But if he does appear in a future film, which actor could perfectly capture the character like J.K. Simmons did in the Sam Raimi films? Even fans of the comics who hated Raimi's movies loved Simmons as Jameson. Hopefully the character will be in one of the next films, and they get an actor as good as J.K. Simmons was in the role.

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field, and Chris Cooper will be released on May 2nd, 2014.

Raimi's series shouldn't be remembered for the 3rd film. Raimi's films got a lot of things right, including a fantastic origin story. Spidey 3 could have been another great movie, but held down by an overproduced production. Still feel that Spidey 2 is one of greater superhero films of this current generation.

ASM was solid enough. Loved the Peter/Gwen stuff. Looking forward to this.

I agree about J.K. Simmons coming back. If not him...I really don't know. Tell me if I'm way off in left field, but what about Timothy Olyphant? It would be against type, but he is definitely versatile and something tells me he might be a lot of fun.

Simmons can come back as JJJ. Judy came back as M for the Bond series. I honestly believe certain characters in films can be recycled back into reboots/remakes. Depending on the character and film.

It would be great if they could get JK Simmons back for JJJ. He was perfect in Raimi's films, absolutely killed it as the character. He was the only consistently good thing in all 3 of Raimi's movies.
Tearlis mentioned below that JJJ could be like Spiderman's M. No matter what they have the same character playing JJJ. Outside of Simmons, there is no one that comes to mind as being able to portray this character.

A different actor

I think Jon Hamm could really handle the comedic rage of JJJ.

John Slattery from Mad Men would make for an awesome J Jonah Jamenson.

Christina Hendricks from Mad Men could be a good choice to play JJJ.
