J.K. Simmons is on a cast list of Venom: Let There Be Carnage that was shown on a movie theater company’s website. Simmons played J. Jonah Jameson in the Spider-Man trilogy starring Tobey Maguire. Simmons shocked audiences when he showed up at the end of Spider-Man: Far From Home as Jameson, the Daily Bugle’s editor-in-chief. And as Jameson publicly announces in the film that Spider-Man is Peter Parker, viewers were left clamoring for more. Simmons will again play Jameson in Spider-Man: No Way Home, the sequel to Spider-Man: Far From Home.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe appears to be tied to the Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters. Adrian Toomes/Vulture, a character previously played in the MCU by Michael Keaton, will show up in Morbius, a trailer for the film showed. The revelation expresses the link between the two universes.
And now we have proof that the universes will share Jameson.
Vue’s Cast List With Simmons Offers The Evidence
A rundown for Venom: Let There Be Carnage mentions Simmons with many of the confirmed actors. The rundown can be found on the website for the movie theater company Vue.
Here’s a screenshot of the rundown:
Screen Rant contacted Sony for comment on the cast list. But it hadn’t heard back when the publication published its story.
The rundown does not say that Jameson will be in the film. However, reason stands that Simmons will play the character. That is given that Simmons was in Spider-Man: Far From Home as Jameson.
“If this cast list is correct, Vue Cinema may have accidentally spoiled his surprise appearance in the film,” Screen Rant’s Adam Bentz wrote.
What’s the implication?
The live-action Venom was first seen three years ago. Since then, enthusiasts have been looking forward to a confrontation between the character and the MCU’s Spider-Man.
“J. Jonah Jameson could set the stage for this showdown by hiring Eddie Brock to take pictures of Spider-Man,” Bentz wrote, pointing out out that it would be possible under the new deal between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures.
Vue’s cast list also also mentions Tom Hollander (Bohemian Rhapsody). No other entities have said he will be in Venom: Let There Be Carnage.
