TheDailyBugle.Net J. Jonah Jameson Video

The mid-credits scene for Spider-Man: Far From Home brought quite the shocking development to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a number of ways (even though the webslinger is no longer part of the Marvel Studios roster of superheroes). But one of the biggest revelations was the return of J.K. Simmons as the venomous J. Jonah Jameson.

In Sam Raimi’s original Spider-Man trilogy, J.K. Simmons perfectly played the editor-in-chief of The Daily Bugle, a newspaper that constantly called out the webslinger as a menace to society. Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios couldn’t think of anyone better to play him, so Simmons came back to reprise the role, this time as a pundit for TheDailyBugle.net, which has now been turned into a real website to help promote the home video release of Spider-Man: Far From Home, complete with video of J.K. Simmons doing his best J. Jonah Jameson again. Watch below! Read More »

spider-man far from home post-credits cameo

Spider-Man: Far From Home takes the webslinger out of his familiar New York haunts and takes him to the far-off shores of Europe. But once he’s back swinging through the skyscrapers of New York, the film reintroduces us to all the familiar faces in Peter Parker’s life — including one face that’s new to Tom Holland‘s Peter, but very recognizable to us.

In the post-credits scene, a jaw-dropping cameo raises all sorts of questions about the fabric of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and how the Spider-Man series plays into it. Or it’s just too perfect a piece of casting to pass up.

Major spoilers for Spider-Man: Far From Home follow.

Another show has been added to the purgatory of cancellation for the time being, but there’s a chance it might be picked up elsewhere.

Counterpart is a sci-fi espionage thriller at Starz starring J.K. Simmons that has been running for two seasons. Sadly, the series has just been canceled, but Media Rights Capital is already shopping it around to other streaming platforms. Read More »
