Major spoilers ahead for Spider-Man: Far From Home!

Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy set the bar for comic book movies when they came out years ago and paved the way for the MCU. The trilogy also remains widely celebrated on the internet today. One of the best castings to come out of Sam Raimi’s films was J.K. Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson. His casting is so highly regarded that he actually reprised his role in Spider-Man: Far From Home during the mid-credits scene. With fans freaking out across the internet, Entertainment Tonight asked Sam Raimi about that surprising J. Jonah Jameson cameo:

“J.K. (Simmons) called me and said: ‘Hey, they’re talking me about reprising my role. What do you think?’ and I said: ‘With all my greatest blessings,’ because I love Spider-Man, I love J.K. and I want to see more of them.”

The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.

Directed by Jon Favreau from a script written by Jeff Nathanson, The Lion Kingstars Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon.
