J.K. Simmons Was Heartbroken When Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 4 Was Canceled

December 8, 2021

Many fans were disappointed when it was announced Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 4 was no longer happening, capping off the Tobey Maguire-led series of movies as a trilogy. One person who felt particularly saddened over the situation is J.K. Simmons, who had been playing J. Jonah Jameson in all three of Raimi’s Spider-Man movies. Like Maguire and Kirsten Dunst, Simmons was also on board to reprise his role in the fourth movie, but issues behind the scenes led to the project’s collapse before it managed to get off the ground.
