J. Jonah Jameson is at it again. J. K. Simmons’ performance as the surly newspaper editor in the Sam Raimi films is memorable, to say the least, and fans are thrilled that he’s returning in “Spider-Man: No Way Home.”
Jameson first shows up in the MCU during the “Spider-Man: Homecoming” post-credits scene, in which he appears onscreen in Times Square to reveal Spider-Man’s identity to the world. This time, Jameson isn’t a simple newspaper man. TheDailyBugle.net is an online publication and talk show in the MCU, with the classic Spider-Man nemesis in front of the camera. Indeed, Jameson’s hatred of Spider-Man has always been an integral part of the comics, and we’re thrilled that Kevin Feige and the rest of Marvel’s powers that be are fully bringing the character into the MCU.
The brief glimpse of Jameson in the “Spider-Man: No Way Home” trailer certainly indicates how much of an antagonist he is to our newest friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. As the villainous Sandman swirls above, Jameson is looking up with a smile on his face and a cameraman in tow, no doubt delighting in Spider-Man’s misfortunes. The newsman’s role in “No Way Home” isn’t entirely known yet, but one thing’s for certain — Spidey has himself another foe in Jameson.
