Jonás Manuel Gutiérrez (-esxo'naz γu'tjeřes; born 5 July 1983) is an Argentine footballer who plays for English Premier League side Newcastle United, and for the Argentinian national team, as a winger. He acquired his nickname "Spider-Man" or "Spider-Mag" (referencing Newcastle's nickname; the Magpies) during his time at Real Mallorca where he celebrated a goal by putting on a Spider-Man mask. He also calls himself "el galgo" meaning "The Greyhound" in Spanish.

He was considered a key part of the national side by former coach Diego Maradona who stated that his team was "Mascherano, Messi, Jonás and eight more." He appeared for Argentina in the 2010 World Cup.
