So our list of Top 10 Superhero Movie Characters is well underway now and we have already brought you a couple of actors who gave us some impressive performances on the big screen as their superhero character. At number 10 we had Patrick Stewart as Charles Xavier in the X-Men movies, while at number nine we had Jackie Earle Haley as Rorschach in Watchmen, which brings us to today.
While most of the characters on this list will be actual superheroes, we simply could not have a list of great characters from superhero movies, without having J Jonah Jameson on there and, in particular, the performance of actor J.K. Simmons in the role. J.K. Simmons played the role of J Jonah Jameson in the Spider-Man trilogy and got the character spot on, in our opinion.
We feel it is fair to say that the character of J Jonah Jameson did not exactly play a key role in any of the Spider-Man movies but, the performance of J.K. Simmons as J Jonah Jameson made it feel like the character had jumped straight of the pages of the comic book, onto the big screen. Simmons got every aspect of the character spot on and was arguably the star of all three Spider-Man movies.
It is even worth noting that, in the new movie series The Amazing Spider-Man, they have yet to re-cast J Jonah Jameson, as it would be very difficult to replace the genius that was J.K. Simmons in the Spider-Man trilogy.
