    I thought it was a announcements that Spilberg was doing Blackhawks for DC and for Krypton did originally announced it was set in DCEU and for JK Simmons as Johnah Jameson in MCU i would love to see them use Jameson as podcast host lol

    I remember hearing that the Jack Reacher does not have the physical characteristics are different for Jack Reacher compared to the film. Also another one is Ready Player One describes the main characters as having diiferent physical features than in the film. Also in the book the main character started out overweight & looses weight as he digs more holes where as in the Disney film he starts & ends still thin.

    You would have to be totally clueless to think that Kevin Fiege doesn’t have 4 plans already ready to go for X-men and Fantastic Four. Back when the MCU was taking off, and the Avengers was a huge success, Kevin was doing an interview and was asked what he would do if having the entire marvel catalog to use at his disposal. He said that he doesn’t know and that they do multiple story boards and then picks the best of each board.

    I didn't like JK Simmons in the Spider-Man movies. I thought he was a big buffoon. I wanted to see a genuine flesh and blood human being in there. That is why when Michael Keaton was said to be in the new Spider-Man movie, I wish he would have been cast as JJ Jameson so that Peter could have interesting exchanges with him going forward. Whether it's investigating a crime, etc....Similar to how the character was written in the Daily Bugle comic-book series. A hard nose guy who is tough but fair. And not a clown. He hates super-heroes but he is willing to give everyone a fair shake.

    Absolutely. JK Simmons is a national treasure.

    Theres an episode of "Ultimate Spiderman" I think it is where they travel the multi-verse (Spider-verse) and in there is a Comment that "JJJ is JJJ no matter where you go" - And I think they should absolutely play on that. He was the best part about those movies other than maybe Willem Dafoe. Holland walks into his office as Peter, right as he's coming in "First, we have these "Avengers" tearing the city apart, then we let Hydra try and keep us safe, and now we have this Spider menace terrorizing Queens, so much for the Sokovia accords if they can't stop him".

    A Spectator is a moron. The author “describing” a character is no different than a comic book artist drawing a character a certain way. The only time race matters is when it is a necessary factor in who the character is. Race isn’t for James Bond. It would be if James Bond was a real life person who was being portrayed onscreen, but he isn’t. He’s imaginary. The only thing he has to be is British because of the government he’s supposed to work for. No one was going to cast Sean Connery as Nelson Mandela instead of Idris Elba. Similarly, no one was going to cast Kate Mara as the lead in Crazy Rich Asians instead of Constance Wu.

  • Joshua Jeffries

    For me, Ive always thought of James Bond as a moniker or title earned by agents throughout their years of service, and I want Idris Elba as James bond I also dont want or think it needs to be rebooted, but John's argument against it being a reboot was retarded, arguing that if their eyes are different then that's the same qualifier as skintone for a reboot. Eyes go unnoticed, aswell as the other miniscule shit he mentioned. Something as bold as a huge shift in skin tone IS absolutely reboot or narrative shift territory, not neccessary but it IS the territory. The way John argued came across as Virtue Signaling rather than actually arguing for a black character. You know how when youtubers cry on cam and it comes across as hugely inauthentic? Your spill on the skin tone struck a huge inauthenticity flag from me, an we both want Idris as Bond

    The mutant thing could easily be dealt with...something has suddenly triggered the mutant gene to kick in recently and suddenly it's flaring up all around the world and it's become a crisis for governments. There could be older mutants like Xavier, Magneto or Logan who have managed to keep their powers out of the public eye. Logan would be easy. He doesn't shoot lasers out of his eyes or looks like a blue demon or anything. Maybe Logan will be the first mutant.

    Tommy Lee Jones of course won an Oscar for The Fugitive in what must have been considered a bit of an upset. No Ralph Fiennes? It's a good, fun movie but it's weird now watching it seeing Julianne Moore getting a big billing as a doctor who basically has one very minor scene and then gone. Seemed like she was going to be a bigger deal but chopped out. Jane Lynch has more to do as another doctor.

    Yeah, to me all the Abrahams/Zucker spoofs are the gold standard of thst sub-genre with Airplane/Top Secret/Naked Gun/Hot Shots. Although I like High Anxiety, Men In Tights, and Spaceballs enough - honestly, I think Mel Brooks isn't nearly as sharp nor clever as Abrahams/Zucker. We won't even dignify the Wayans brothers stuff with any further mention, except to say they ruined the concept with lazily inept, inert, inane execution. But I'd say National Lampoon's Loaded Weapon 1 is certainly the most underrated spoof film. Does UHF count though?

    No because every marvel fan makes fun of Tobey maguire and raimis trilogy but when it comes to jk Simmons playing JJ everyone knows his the perfect cast for it, so they keep there mouths shut, of course the mcu fans want jk Simmons because they know he can’t be replaced by a better actor, once again personal convenience and interest,

  • TheVIadMan
    TheVIadMan 9 months ago +9

    JK Simmons was perfect in the role and would fit right in the MCU. He even voices the character in the Ultimate Spider-Man series.
    If he doesn’t reprise his role, I think Gary Oldman should step in his shoes. Thought about this ever since Simmons played Commissioner Gordon.

    31:20 Yes, I've heard the rumor...LAST YEAR. There's recent You Tube video in...German, (?) that revises this to Avengers 4. At least thats what the headline says. It also says 'confirmed' *Which means it smells like stinky unwashed socks* Hey, at least Tony Stark becomes Kang. Heard that one too. There's also a character called The Sphinx, who ...oh wait. We haven't gotten to that theory yet, Getting ahead of myself.My bad.
    Anyway. 31:54 In Stephen King's novella Rita Hayworth and The Shawshank Redemption, Red is a white Irish guy with red hair. Morgan Freeman played that character in the film, and nobody had a problem. Also, the character of Andy is played by Tim Robbins. In Kings story, Andy is short. Nobody cared. Why? The film was great., that's why.

    I would say that James Bond’s whiteness was important in 1962 because the character kind represented Britain clinging to relevance in its post-imperial period. For the 21st century, Idris Elba can represent Britain as well as any white actor.

    Even though JK Simmons was a perfect J Jonah Jameson I think he wouldn't be an ideal JJJ in this current MCU. His JJJ was over the top and almost bordered on a parody which fit in perfectly with some of the elements of the Sam Rami Spiderman movies. I think someone like Bryan Cranston or John C. McGinley would be perfect for the MCU JJJ.

    I think there are certain fictional characters that need to look a certain way because the look is iconic. Superman needs to look like Superman always does. J. Jonah Jameson has to look like the comics version. Mary Jane Watson has to be a hot redhead.

    • M Blair
      M Blair 9 months ago

      Based on that why should anyone ever cast a look then? To some people the "best actress" would be one that can play the role and look like the person she is playing.

    • Nicktendo 1

      Mike Blair Because getting the best actress for the role is more important than making sure she has the right color eyes.

    • M Blair
      M Blair 9 months ago

      I think having a character look like the character is pretty common sense. After reading decades of Spider-man I have no idea why it would even be a consideration to have her look different when there is no reason for it. After all they usually do cast people with the right look. To some people Jame Bond might be an exception because we have already seen many different looking bonds on screen.

    • Nicktendo 1

    Examples of Reboots or Franchise start-overs that kept actors for the same role:
    James Bond - Judi Dench as M
    The Flash - Mark Hamill as The Trickster
    The Lion King - James Earl Jones as Mufasa
    Marvel - Lou Ferrigno as the voice of Hulk
    I see no reason as to why they shouldn't get J.K Simmons for Jameson if they ever bring the character back.

    John, are you familiar with the Adam Dagliesh detective series by PD James that has been televised by BBC? PD James only minimally described the physical appearance of the intellectual, poetry writing protagonist in her novels. She had mentioned in an interview that she gave it little thought. The actor Martin Shaw who portrayed Dagliesh had an appeal to the female audience although he doesn't seem particularly attractive or sexy in a conventional way (to me anyway). After watching Shaw as Dagliesh, James said that she couldn't really imagine any other actor as the character. This is an interesting case of the actor portraying a character and influencing the author.
