We’ve been wondering when we might get a peek at Daily Bugle editor and Spider-Man-hater J. Jonah Jameson, and now we have our first inkling of what we can expect from Marc Webb’s take on the classic character.
We still haven’t heard whether Jameson will even show up in the sequel, but now Webb’s team has revealed that he will definitely still have a bone to pick with the webslinger. The Daily Bugle newspaper has revealed an editorial from Jameson’s desk, and it seems like he’s in the early days of his future-hate for Spider-Man.
Check it out below:
Recently, Spider-Man got involved in the apprehension of a carjacker. The web he spun blocking the thief’s path on East 61st Street forced the driver to divert to First Avenue. While driving in the wrong direction, the carjacker hit four cars, one of which crashed through the front of a coffee shop…one of those places that serves that stupid latte art Melissa Hutchins loves so much. Fortunately, no one was hurt, but police estimate over four hundred thousand in damages were incurred.
Of course, civilians applauded as the wall-crawling vigilante pulled the thief out of his damaged car. Did any of them notice the damage left in Spider-Man’s wake?
Last December, Spider-Man pursued a bank robber named Herman Schultz who was using homemade weapons that emitted vibrational shock waves. Over two hundred photos of Schultz, hanging upside down from a twisted street light in a cocoon of webbing, were posted online. Including several with police officers (all of whom were reprimanded).
Did anyone consider that during Spider-Man’s prolonged pursuit and apprehension of Schultz, a city bus, a police car, two streetlights, a fire hydrant and twenty feet of sidewalk were destroyed? Estimated damage: $2.8 million dollars.
And who’s paying for Spider-Man’s actions? I am. You are. And every other taxpayer in this city. It’s clear Spider-Man’s results do not justify the reckless methods he employs. When is he going to finally realize this and just stop?
Do you think this is an indication we’ll actually see Jameson in the sequel, or are they just setting up the wider world? Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set to open May 2, 2014.
