Yes, Spider-Man: Homecoming was pretty damn great, wasn’t it? While Sony may have worn out the character in their Amazing Spider-Man franchise, this new Marvel Studios-run entry injected new life into it. If they are missing something, it’s that very same element that Amazing Spider-Man was missing…J. Jonah Jameson.
That’s right. Everyone’s favorite editor-in-chief of the Daily Bugle, and the mean-spirited, fast-talking boss of Peter Parker, who can’t seem to get his fill of pictures of Spider-Man (and good thing Peter is always able to deliver). The role was memorably played by J.K. Simmons in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy, and so iconic was he in the role that it seems that the filmmakers have been hesitant to bring the character back into the fold.
Well, there is now one actor that some fans have been going nuts over…an actor who’s already a part of the MCU. Ladies and gents, may I present Chris Evans!

I know, I know. He’s already an integral part of the MCU, isn’t he? True, but from everything we’ve heard, it sounds like his time in this world is coming to an end. And with Cap’s probable death, it would open him up to take on a completely different character in the form of J. Jonah Jameson.
And before you go nuts in the comments, no I’m not being serious. That being said, the resemblance is striking. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t at least entertain the notion, even if for a small moment. What do you think? Would he be good for the role, and how do you feel about Marvel recycling their actors?
