J.K. Simmons has revealed that his cameo at the end of Spider-Man: Far From Home as J.J. Jameson wasn't the last we'll see of the character.

In an interview on Sirius XM's The Jess Cagle Show (via THR), Simmons revealed he has already filmed an additional cameo as the iconic Spider-Man nemesis, and that another appearance is in the works. 

"Well yeah, [I’ll be back as Jameson] that’s the short answer," Simmons said. "There is a future for J. Jonah Jameson after a several-year hiatus. He showed up very briefly for those who were wise enough to stay through the credits of Far From Home … There is one more J.J.J. appearance in the can, and from what I'm hearing there's a plan for yet another. So hopefully J.J.J. will continue now and forever."

Simmons reprising his role from Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy was a big deal because as it's the first time an actor from an earlier franchise played the same character in Disney's MCU. However, the two Jamesons are both different versions of the character, and so far there's no other link between Rami's trilogy and the MCU (although, fingers crossed for a crossover in Rami's upcoming Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness).

For now, it sounds like Simmons is content with bringing J.J. Jameson back in minor cameo roles, comparing the situation to his recurring role as Billy Barber from the Chris Evans-lead Apple TV Plus series, Defending Jacob.

"I come in, I do my thing, it's not the biggest part in the thing, I'm only in six, seven, eight scenes, but it has an impact while I'm there," Simmons said (via TheWrap). "I really kind of like not having to shoulder the whole load a la Chris Evans, but I like doing my thing and having that thing be impactful."

Here's how we sorted the best Spider-Man movies ranked.

I'm GamesRadar's green tea-fueled, late-night news hound. I'm perpetually in search of an MMO to recapture the feeling of playing Ultima Online in the early 2000s, and I'm still sorting out self-esteem issues from being relegated to second player duties growing up with two older brothers. On a related note, I'm irrationally defensive of Luigi and his mansion.
