Warning: this article contains major spoilers for Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Spider-Man: Far From Home surprises fans with a major cameo that will leave Marvel fans buzzing and clamoring for the next film featuring the wall-crawler when they leave the theater. Seriously, this is your last chance to avoid spoilers! At the end of the film, during the mid-credits scene, Marvel pulls the ultimate surprise and reveals the shocking return of JK Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson. The actor known for his iconic over-the-top performance as the Daily Bugle publisher reprises his role when the publication gets a proper introduction in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
After taking MJ swinging through New York City, Peter drops her off and is ready to go when a breaking newscast catches his eye. The report features JK Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson, revealing a video Mysterio’s accomplices have edited to portray Spider-Man as the real villain behind the Elemental attacks across Europe. Peter is shown moments before Mysterio’s death as he takes back control of the EDITH system and recalls the drones that displayed the illusion of the Elemental in London.
The real kicker is when JK Simmons’ J. Jonah Jameson declares Spider-Man a menace just before he reveals another video in which Mysterio outs Spider-Man’s true identity as Peter Parker, setting things up for quite an interesting starting point in the next Spider-Man film.
