Comic book movie fans will be quick to tell you: one of the best parts of Sam Raimi’s original Spider-Man movie trilogy – and a case of pitch-perfect casting – was character actor J.K.

he really was the x factor of the first trilogy..i think the new spiderman doesnt have enough supporting cast like jameson and harry osborne..even dr connors was barely seen in every movie along with easter egg actors like bruce campbell. i dont mind if they include jameson in this new trilogy because i dont know anyone who can pull off that character that well as JK simmons
