J.K. Simmons Signed Up For 'SpiderMan 3'

J.K. SimmonsJ.K. Simmons, who plays the role of J. Jonah Jameson in SpiderMan 2, says that he has already signed up for SpiderMan 3.

"I am absolutely signed up and ready, willing and able and excited about doing Spider-Man 3," Simmons told Sci-Fi Wire. "I think the original plan was to do them every other year, but then [Spider-Man 2] ended up getting a little bit delayed, so we're doing a late June release instead of May. They like that Memorial Day slot, so I think that's the reason for doing a [May 4] 2007 release."

Simmons then talked about developing his character. "You have to stay within the confines of what the character's relationships are," Simmons said. "Certainly, the comic books took him to some interesting places over the years. I don't see Triple-J ever being the focus of a Spider-Man movie. I'm not campaigning for that. I don't think that's the function the character serves. Having said that, it's always fun to have a little more to do and a little more screen time and to get to interact with more characters. But in this world I'm very happy to be one of the guys in the background helping to keep the thing afloat."
