We would have personally just brought J.K. Simmons back, but we suppose this makes sense, too!
Although there was speculation that John Slattery and Sam Elliot were both up for the role of J. Jonah Jameson in the upcoming Spider-Man reboot, sources close to the production have revealed that the Daily Bugle chief will NOT be featured in the flick at all!
Kind of a bummer, but Peter Parker is still in high school in this adaptation, so we're not surprised that his boss won't be around!
We'll just have to wait for the sequel, we guess! Sigh.
