    I never could think of Howard stock or Thunderbolt Ross as JJJ.


    That's an awesome idea. But i'd rather see J.K Simmons come back to play JJJ again.

    No to Sam Elliot. Elliot's too badass with his mustache and cool Southern accent to play that sleazy old Jonah Jameson.

    Get J.K. Simmons to play him again. He's pretty much synomous with the character to me.

    J.K. had Jameson nailed, they didn't change Q or M for a new Bond(at least till the actor for Q died), why change J Jonah's actor?

    OK, they "rebooted" Bond when they went with Daniel Craig, and they still had Judi Dench as "M", so even with this reboot, I would have repeats from the first franchise that stood out, instead of reusing actors from other Marvel movies.

    The Bond movies with Daniel Craig are considered a reboot since it is the beginning of his status as a 00 instead of when he was already a 00 for many years, like the Connery/Moore/Brosnan movies, and they still used the same M from the Brosnan movies.

    So what is wrong with using JK Simmons as JJJ? I think if it is not broke, don't change it and JK nailed JJJ so why use someone else who already had a role in the Marvel U

    Hm..very big shoes to fill. Simmons was a great JJJ, i mean, the first time i saw Spiderman i shout "he is perfect! ". :p  I gotta admit he did a great job with the character.

    Either JK or Stan Lee since one J.Johan Jameson is based on Stan Lee and Second it is about damn time he gets a major role in a marvel movie!

    Kinda torn here. JK was brilliant in all three movies, probably the best cast actor in any Marvel comic film ever. But on the other hand, reboots should come off with a clan slate.

    Yup, keep the JJJ from the other Spiderman movies. He stole every scene he was in. I liked him in the role so much, I'd go see a JJJ movie. Yes, a movie based on a supporting Spiderman character. Just have him ranting & raving for 90 minutes. Comedy gold.

    Stan Lee said that J.K nailed it so well Stan Lee decided he wouldn't want to bother as JJJ.

    J.K Simmons FTW!!!!!!

    J.K. Simmons for JJJ. No doubt about it. I never was a fan of Spidey in it's movie form, but Simmons as JJJ was simply awesome. Whichever nucklehead chose some other actor for JJJ needs to get fired.
