What If Ice Cube Played Spider-Man’s Boss, J. Jonah Jameson?

Since news broke of actor J.K. Simmons jumping ship from Marvel to D.C. to play Commissioner Gordon in the Justice League film, fans have been speculating on who would replace him as the ornery J. Jonah Jameson in the Spider-Man reboot.

Of the choices tossed around in the fantasy casting Ice Cube’s name has been brought up more often than most, considering the hot-headed boss he played in 21 Jump Street and the sequel 22 Jump Street.  One artist’s rendering was spot on:

In the most recent Superman films actor Laurence Fishburne played Clark Kent’s boss at the Daily Planet, Perry White, opening the door to the idea of race-bending J. Jonah. While we think J.K. Simmons was the PERFECT J.J., we imagined what Ice Cube could do in the spot. Watch the video above and let us know what you think.
