    Ya Jk would be great. And since it's been so long without him. And like I said before bind reusing Dench when it rebooted. And even though he is nearing or around 60. Jk is still in great shape and could easil| easily still play the role.

    JK is the only person allowed to come back in a reboot.

    I do hope he will be back. Sure there is plently of good actors out there who could take the role. But eith Jk having a working relationship with marvel still. Puts alot of pull he could be given the role again.

    I would think re cast, so that the series feels fresh & so that the mere memory of JK Simmons will be stronger than him potentially giving a bad performance if that makes any sense?

    But, if people are believing no other actor in the world would be capable of playing the role, then by all means, bring him back.

    It would still be fresh. If Jk returned. He wouldn't be the same type as raimi in films. And I brought it up before if bond could reboot and till used dench. No reason it couldn't happened here.

    Would they be in the same office/building set? Would the rest of the daily bugle cast be there? I just thought it may feel disjointed if only one cast member is still there. James Bond situation is an exception because they change characters each time.

    Well of course 8t be different building sets and cast for bugle. I was just saying Jk would be great to return. Has express desire to return. And has good working relationship with marvel. Will he be back. Who knows what. I would like if he did. But I wouldn't be adverse to someone else if they do as good take.

    As great as Simmons was in Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy, they shouldn't bring him back. As others have stated, it's just going to confuse people as to why Simmons is back from the Raimi universe, making people think that the Raimi trilogy is part of the MCU.

    It just doesn't make sense to bring him back for a reboot.

    Plus, I'm sure there are other great actors out there that should be allowed a crack at the role.

    i dont see the problem if he was to return. He doesnt look that much older. We havent seen jjj on film in a long time. And most audience members wouldnt care he was in raimi films. Again he wouldnt look/act just like raimi take on jjj. He would likely have a more different take. And i and others brought up the point when bond rebooted they kept the same M for awhile. And no one was a huff at that. Will jk be jjj again who knows. But i would love to see if he is offered to return. Then if he doesnt want to move on. Now sure their is plently of good actors who can do the role.

    I think it would be difficult to ask an actor to play the same character but differently in a different universe. JK Simmons is who he is and he brought what he could to JJJ's characterisation in the Raimi trilogy. To ask him to play the role a little differently because it's a different movie universe would be quite insulting to him, and to any actor.

    I'm not sure about the example you've given with Bond as I haven't seen the films.

    If it turns out that there's some casting news about the solo Spidey movie and Simmons does get the role again then I won't be bothered at all but I really would prefer for another actor to take on the role.

    Personally, seeing Simmons in the role again would just take me out of the movie, spoil the immersion and make it hard for me to stop drawing comparisons to the Raimi films.

    We don't even know what they plan to do with jj. He could be a bit different. Again jk would be great to see. And I wouldn't be mad if he came back. But ya there is others who could do role well. Who I don't know. But I can't wait to see who and what they do with jjj.

    John Slattery is Howard Stark. But if he wasn't I think he would be good for the role.

    ya we wouldnt have old howard actor as jj, i doubt oldman would want to get tied down to another comic book franchise. Keaton would be an interesting choice.

    Almost all of your choices have something to do with Batman.
    Don't know about Slattery.
