Spidey's Boss Talks SequelsSpider-Man" series is the performance by JK Simmons as blowhard newspaper editor J. Jonah Jameson. Fortunately, the character actor will be returning for "Spider-Man 3" -- and perhaps even future installments, too.
From TV Guide by way of Dark Horizons: "About his involvement in the third film, he says "I probably had not as much to do as I did in the second one and maybe a little more than I had in the first one, but from what I saw the new bad-guy stuff is once again going to top its predecessor. Hopefully there are plenty of cards to play for [Parts] 4, 5, 6.... I'll do a Spider-Man for every two or three years for the next couple decades if they want. That'd be all right!"
Was there any talk of Spider-Man 4 on the set? "Yeah, it got mentioned. In fact, the last couple of days I shot was at the very end of the schedule -- we were doing some night-action scenes in New York -- and [director] Sam [Raimi] was talking about it. It's not a done deal because everybody's deals, including Sam Raimi's and all the actors', was for three pictures. But he's certainly open to doing more."
