JK Simmons reveals that he has signed up for two more Spider-Man movies after his surprise cameo in Far From Home.

JK Simmons has revealed that he has signed up to appear in two future Spider-Man movies.

The actor portrayed Daily Bugle editor J Jonah Jameson in the Sam Raimi trilogy featuring Tobey Maguire, reprising the role for a surprise cameo in the end credits of last year's Spider-Man: Far From Home.

In an interview with People, Simmons confirmed that he is on board for more films should producers want him and was then asked if fans should expect to see JJJ back on screen.

"I don't know if I would use the word expect," he replied. "When we signed on for the first movie, we signed a contract to do two sequels as well. Which is always – I guess not always, but in my case – a one-sided contract where you're committed to do it, but they're not necessarily committed to use your character in ensuing movies.

"It's great to have the opportunity, as these things evolve, to be one of the holdovers from the previous version."

Pre-production is already underway on the next Spider-Man movie, which is due for release in November 2021.
