J. K. Simmons' portrayal of the cranky Jonah J. Jameson in Sam Raimi's set of Spider-Man movies is legendary and his performance has seen him voice the character time and time again.

When he showed up in Spider-Man: Far From Home, this spelled the possible return of the reporter that we love to hate. Again, he appeared in No Way Home to harangue Peter Parker publicly and is even there for the Green Goblin fight. He's becoming more and more of a central character and with all of this in consideration, it would be a dream for fans to see Simmons' original character come back. We need some more one-liners from the editor-in-chief, right?

Check out the trailer for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, which comes to cinemas on 2 June, below!

Simmons appeared on the latest episode of Michael Rosenbaum's Inside of You podcast to discuss his storied career. When asked about the potential appearance Jonah J. Jameson in Sam Raimi's take on Spider-Man 4, the actor expressed his utmost enthusiasm.

"Absolutely. I would do anything that Sam Raimi approached me with. I mean, almost anything," he replied. No Way Home brought back $1.9 billion at the box office against a $200 million budget, but, updates on the next Spider-Man MCU movie have been few and far between. The response to Maguire's return was overwhelmingly positive and Jonah J. Jameson has shown up twice now, so it's not out of the realm of possibility, though I wouldn't pin all your hopes on it.

Additionally, the podcast welcomed Simmons' brother David to speak on their bond and the work that The UBU Project does. As a performing arts education outreach organisation, The UBU Project's mission is to prevent youth suicide, addiction, and bullying and teach empathy and healthy skills for emotional distress. On 28 January, J. K. and David Simmons are performing for the annual benefit concert along with a number of local artists to Scottsdale, Arizona, and tickets are on sale now.
