Spoilers ahead for Spider-Man: Far From Home
Newsflash: there's a surprise Marvel cameo in Spider-Man: Far From Home featuring the return of a character you wouldn't expect.
As the mid-credits scene rolls, Spider-Man is seen hanging out with MJ in New York City.
Just then a video broadcast starts to play, eventually revealing J.K. Simmons, who is back as J. Jonah Jameson, the cantankerous editor at the Daily Bugle.
Simmons famously played Jameson in the Spider-Man trilogy directed by Sam Raimi. His character was loud, angry, and a staunch Spider-Man hater. Needless to say, it's one of the most iconic comic portrayals in any universe—and now he's in the MCU.
In Spider-Man: Far From Home, Jameson is back to his usual ways, spreading fake news about the web slinger and otherwise sharing his displeasure with the hero's adventures.
It's awesome that Simmons is back as Jameson, because he was truly fantastic in that role. But how amazing would it have been if Tobey Maguire took up the role as the angry Daily Bugle editor? Maybe it would have been too meta (not to mention confusing).
Spider-Man: Far From Home is now in theaters.
