Superheroes really like working for the same newspapers that cover their (mis)deeds, which is basically the worst conflict of interest since, well, insert latest NYT headline here. Luckily, we can always count on J. Jonah Jameson to maintain the fourth estate’s integrity... even against the most powerful alien in the world.


YouTuber DrMachakil, who previously made that video where Tom Cruise fell through a bunch of movies, has brought us a hilarious mash-up that puts J.K. Simmons’ legendary performance from the Spider-Man films straight into Zack Snyder’s super-serious world of news. Turns out, all Lois Lane and Clark Kent needed was an editor who wouldn’t take any of their bull-shit. Come on, Clark, trying to do a hit piece on the masked vigilante who happens to be cramping your alter-ego’s superhero style? Not cool, man.

There’s still no word who will be playing Daily Bugle publisher J. Jonah Jameson in Spider-Man: Homecoming, should the character make an appearance at all. There are rumors Marvel is changing the gender of the role, possibly having Tyne Daly play the iconic character. Simmons has said he’s open to reprising his role, but right now he’s kind of busy playing Commissioner Gordon in Justice League.

I love JK Simmons’ JJJ so much. There is nothing that will ever top it. Hell, his screen test was great:

However, I am perfectly okay with Tyne Daly playing J. Jonah Jameson, too, although I am still rooting for Keith David.
