Have we heard anything about this movie having a JJJ? Raimi's version was perfect, and slightly toned down I'd love to see him in Webb's movies.

Raimi's version was a perfect Lee/Ditko Jameson, but a bit more broad and one-note than the more nuanced, often-heroic Jameson developed by later writers. Although the JJJ of the past few years' comics is broader again, more J. K. Simmons-like, unsurprisingly.

Ever since I saw him as the grouchy, acerbic CIA boss in Undercovers, I've felt that Gerald McRaney would make a fantastic Jameson. I doubt very much I'll get my wish, though.

I used to think that R. Lee Ermey from Full Metal Jacket and other movies would be a good JJJ but he'd be far too old now.

I still think that they could do a Judi Dench/ M and get JK Simmons back even in a new continuity.

This would be his third version of the character, he's already done his second version on the Ultimate Spider-Man TV series.

I live just about 25 miles south-east of Rochester NY and I learned yesterday that Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be filming some cars chase scenes here within the month!

Maybe that's just an intermediary look in the movie and something closer to the comic book look will show up in the later part of the movie?
Though, the mask would look absolutely ridiculous on the live action screen.

Re: "Amazing Spider-man 2" discussion

Yeah, I should have included a winking smiley. I didn't really expect them to use the classic costume (at least not the mask anyway), and I do like the look, it's pretty badass, especially the skin tone. It makes him look unearthly.

Now I'm hoping for a lot of electricity puns from Spidey.

I am completely deflated by this version of Electro. Looks like a failed makeup test for Avatar. Holding out hopes for a cool Rhino costume.

I don't have a problem with Electro's look. Anything's better than that stupid yellow starburst mask. And of course you can't judge from a set photo how something will look in the final movie with proper lighting and lenses and image processing and such.

Not to mention any special effects that might be part of the overall look.
