Daily Bugle in media change

The Daily Bugle was first featured on film in the 2002 movie Spider-Man. The fictional newspaper is meant to be a pastiche of both the New York Daily News and the New York Post, two popular real-life New York City tabloids. The outlet appears in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy (2002–07), Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man duology (2012–14) and Sony's Spider-Man Universe (2018–present). The agency is reimagined as a sensationalist news website in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movies Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) and Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021), the SSU movie Venom: Let There Be Carnage (2021), and the web series The Daily Bugle (2019–present), headlined by J. K. Simmons and Angourie Rice as J. Jonah Jameson and Betty Brant. An alternate version of the web series hosted by Nicque Marina was featured in promotional material for the SSU movie Morbius (2022).
