The 62-year-old-actor has shared that he loved playing Jameson and would very much like to make a return to the character in Tom Holland's Spider-Man films, according to Contactmusic.

Adding, “If there were an opportunity to revisit that, I don't know though. How old is 'Spider-Man' going to be if J. Jonah Jameson is this old?”

Helmed by Zack Snyder, the flick is slated on November 17
