From the blurry video cap, they're closer to Romita / Romita Jr eyes.

Apparently J. Jonah Jameson won't appear in this film.

I don't know, the eyes almost look like they could be like Ditko's:

Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

I just saw the story about JJJ not appearing. That's too bad. Perhaps he'll be cast for the second film...perhaps my theory of an ongoing arc through the trilogy is true.

Curses. Spider-powered curses.

Perhaps they want to leave it as long as possible before someone else has to replace JK Simmons pitch-perfect performance.

Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Yeah, I wouldn't want to be the one to replace J.K. Simmons, either. It could have been a similar scenario like with Thunderbolt Ross and the Hulk movies. Sam Elliot (who was ironically at one point or another rumored to be J. Jonah Jameson in this reboot) was pitch-perfect in Ang Lee's Hulk and while William Hurt was a decent replacement in The Incredible Hulk, he still wasn't as good as Elliot's portrayal.

^ And even then, it wasn't really like people raved all that much about Sam's performance. Don't get me wrong, he was excellent, as always. But Hulk was such a mess that no-one really raved about any of the performances. Whereas everyone seemed to love Simmons' JJJ, thus making it even harder to fill his moustache and flattop.

Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Simmons performance as Old Flattop was perfect. I guess if the first movie is about Peter in high school then they're going in a different direction with his job...or maybe he doesn't have one. Who knows. Harry and Norman are both absent in this movie too.

in Ultimate he still works at the Bugle, as a web intern.

The second movie should have him soon or already graduated from high school.

The subplot is Peter looking for work maybe at OSCORP as an intern or the Daily bugle.

Hey, if Judi Dench can be 'M' to Brosnan and a prequel Bond in Daniel Craig then I see no reason J.K.Simmons can't be JJJ yet again. If any casting in the first trilogy was spot on it was him.

I've always preferred the smaller eyes on Spidey myself. It gave him a slightly creepier, more serious look than the big giant round ones did.

Wasn't Hugh Laurie supposed to be JJJ in Spider-man?

Why not use him?

^ Hugh Laurie was supposed to be Perry White in "Superman Returns".

Re: Spider-Man movie (casting, rumors, pix till release)

I still vote for Hugh Laurie, regardless.

And mechanical webshooters and narrow eyes for the win.
