    It would be great if he can return! They say everyone is replaceable, which is most likely true. But with some actors, you simply feel like they were made for certain roles! I feel that with Simmons as JJJ. I also feel the same as Robert Downey JR as Tony Stark. At some point, Iron Man will get a remake and maybe they will choose someone who would fit to play Stark, but I doubt it will be such a perfect fit as Downey is. It's the same with JK Simmons imo, so if they can bring him back, it would be a good thing, even though I kinda lost my hope when it comes to getting a proper Spider-Man franchise if I'm completely honest...

    He did an excellent job in the Raimi movies, but unfortunately it would screw with the face that the MCU Spiderman is cut-off from the Raimi continuity, so I do not think he should be cast again

    Here's a thread I haven't seen for a heck of a long time. I'm starting to find it less and less likely Simmons comes back. My current top pick is Timothy Omundson. I've been watching my way through Psych on Netflix and I think he would nail JJJ.

    why would you think jk couldnt come back. He has said many times he would llike to. Plus he is on good terms with marvel/disney via doing the current cartoon. Less they where going for someone younger ie like 10 yrs younger then jk is right now i dont think its really that far out of realm he could come back. He doesnt really look his age and you put him back in the wig and facial hair he wouldnt be that hard to pull off again.

    God just cause he was in the raimi films doesnt mean he couldnt be back. He could have slightly different look, and be protrayed differently then raimi take on the character. Plus look at bond they rebooted and started with dench at the start of reboot again for new m. Plus its been enough yrs passed general audience members and new viewers probably wouldnt know or care he did a past film.

    I won't complain if he does come back (assuming the character isn't as over the top as he was in the Raimi films... he ended up just a little too cartoonish, IMO, which wouldn't fit with the bit more grounded MCU). However, I would prefer it if he didn't (hence why I voted 'no'). I liked him well enough in those films, but I wouldn't mind seeing what someone else could do with the character.

    Just my opinion, though

    His portrayal was too much of a caricature, the most none cartoonish moment of his is the time the Green Goblin attacked him in the office.

    I might be the only one who wants Simmons to stay in the Maguire/Rami universe.

    Don't get me wrong, he was funny and great in the role, but I really would like to see another actor step up to the plate and give it a swing versus pulling a Daniel Craig Bond and bringing back an actor that only confuses things, the continuity, timeline, etc.

    I'd love to see Cranston get a shot at JJ. Much like Simmons, he balances comedic and serious talent perfectly. Still though, I really want Odenkirk at the end of the day in the same way I want Johnathan Banks for Vulture.

    Edit: Just realized my picks broke bad. :hehe:

    Wow. Never thought of Banks before but I can see it/dig it.

    Like that you have Cranston or Odenkirk on your list. :)

    Disagreed. His portrayal was perfect for Jonah. Jonah nearly always comical and over the top. He one of funniest characters in Spider-Man world.

    I felt that a bit in Spider-Man 3, but that wasn't really the actor's fault. That movie was just F****d up on so many levels...

    Since he likely won't be Uncle Ben, I'm moving my Tom Hanks suggestion to JJJ. He needs to be in a superhero movie, dammit :o

    really if tom hanks did a comics film i doubt he take what would be a small role as ben would be. He could probably do great as JJ and i can see it. Still i would love jk again. But hanks would be a good backup, and he does have a good relationship with disney.

    Agreed. You're not alone. I adored Simmons as JJJ in the Raimi trilogy. Now let's leave it there for all posterity. There's just no way for it not be feel like a re-tread.

    It would be such a mistake to bring back JK Simmons.
