A new Spider-Man: No Way Home action figure teases JK Simmons’ role in the film.
In the mid-credits scene for Spider-Man: Far From Home, fans were caught by surprise when Academy Award-winner JK Simmons returned to play the Daily Bugle’s J Jonah Jameson. JK Simmons previously portrayed the character in Sam Raimi’s original Spider-Man trilogy to much acclaim. The actor’s performance was so beloved and iconic, that Marvel Studios and director Jon Watts brought JK Simmons back, albeit he’s playing a version of the character specific to the MCU, and not the same version seen in the Sam Raimi films.
Marvel recently revealed a collection of new merchandise in promotion for Spider-Man: No Way Home. Obviously, much of the merchandise is focused on the webhead’s new suits, but one of the more intriguing reveals involves an action figure of JK Simmons as J Jonah Jameson as portrayed in both the Spider-Man: Far From Home mid credits scene and in Spider-Man: No Way Home. You can check out this collectible action figure down below:
It would make sense that JK Simmons would have a bigger presence in No Way Home as yet another force to taunt Tom Holland’s Peter Parker in the film. Although plot-details remain firmly under wraps for the highly-anticipated sequel, it will likely pick up where the previous film left off, and Peter will likely have to clear his name after his identity was leaked to the public.
