Superhero Hype! recently talked to J.K. Simmons (AKA J. Jonah Jameson) on the set of his new comedy, I Love You, Man, with Paul Rudd and Jason Segel, and asked a few Spider-Man 4 questions:

SHH!: So we know that James Vanderbilt is close to turning in a script for "Spider-Man 4." Have they reached out to you yet?
J.K. Simmons: We sort of check in once in a while. They say, you know, we want J.K. to do it. We don't know where. We don't know when. We don't know who. We don't know anything, you know? They signed all of us for the first three films. Sam, Tobey, all the way down the line to me and we'll see where it goes. I mean its all conjecture and you guys probably know more than I do at this point. There was talk of doing four and five concurrently and I don't know if they're still considering that or not and I spoke to Tobey in I guess it was February, sort of awards season time and he's certainly amenable to doing some more and hopefully we'll be able to get everybody back and make another good one.

SHH!: Or a couple of 'em?
Simmons: Couple, three, four, five! Whatever. You know, I could buy a bigger house.

SHH!: What if Sam decides not to come back as a director but stays as a producer, would you guys still be...
Simmons: Well...

SHH!: Would you and the rest of the gang still come back?
Simmons: Well, I can only speak for myself, but if Sam were not the director but still had a hand in it then I would certainly have a reasonable amount of faith in it. Obviously if he's the director I'm there 100%. If he's not involved at all, which I think is VERY unlikely, then it would be a situation that I would have to think about. But if he's involved, hopefully directing or at least as a producer then, I'm pretty confident that it would be something that I wanna do. Plus they pay money.

JK is probably the best living embodiment of any comic book character ever.

True, but he could have been an even better Venom. He was good, but just didn't have a role where he could really show off.

Too many stories in Spidey 3.
