J.K Simmons open to Spider-Man return

NEW YORK: J.K Simmons would “never say never” to returning to the Spider-Man world.
The 62-year-old actor starred as Daily Bugle newspaper editor J. Jonah Jameson in all three of the Sam Raimi “Spider-Man” movies, and he has returned to the comic book genre playing Police Commissioner James Gordon in the DC Extended Universe film “Justice League.”
Simmons loved playing Jameson and would very much like to make a return to the character in Tom Holland’s Spider-Man films which are part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Simmons said: “I never say never. I mean, you know, obviously I had an amazing time with Sam Raimi in those movies and Tobey Maguire and everybody.
“That was a great, great time and huge for my career and my life, and just pure fun. If there were an opportunity to revisit that ... I do not know though. How old is “Spider-Man” going to be if J. Jonah Jameson is this old?”
Holland starred in his first feature film as the webslinger this year in ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming.’
Despite being part of the MCU, the film marked the first time Marvel and Sony Pictures — who own the film rights to Spider-Man — worked together on the fan favorite superhero after Marvel sold the rights in 1985 for $225,000.

However, Sony Pictures are also developing their own ‘Spider-Man’ universe and recently announced two spin-off movies are in the works.
Sony has announced the release date for the upcoming Gina Prince-Bythewood directed movie ‘Silver and Black’, which will hit cinemas four months after the previously announced October 2018 release of ‘Venom’, starring Tom Hardy.

$18M worth of cocaine found in bananas given to Texas prison

  • Federal officials and the US Customs and Border Protection are investigating

HOUSTON: Authorities say bananas donated to a Texas prison turned out to have nearly $18 million worth of cocaine hidden inside the boxes.
The Texas Department of Criminal Justice says in a Facebook post that the drugs were found in two pallets of bananas that were donated because they were already ripe. The donation arrived Friday.
The department says sergeants who picked up the boxes found a bundle of a white powdery substance under the bananas. US customs officials were called to the scene, and authorities say 540 packages of cocaine were found in 45 boxes of bananas.
The department says federal officials and the US Customs and Border Protection are investigating.
