No J. Jonah Jameson in Spidey Reboot?

EDIT: Fixed the link.

EDIT 2: Judging by these set photos, the Daily Bugle exists in this universe. Maybe Dexter Bennett is going to be the boss? Doubt it.

What do you think? Is a reboot focusing on a younger Peter Parker missing something critical if it doesn’t include teenage Peter’s cigar-chomping, barber-trusting employer?
