The Hollywood Reporter has just announced that J.K. Simmons will be playing Commissioner Gordon in 2017’s Justice League: Part One.
Justice League, which will be directed by Zack Snyder, sees heroes Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) teaming up to and continuing the story that builds off of this month’s Batman v Superman and next year’s Wonder Woman.
Chris Terrio wrote the screenplay for Justice League, which will be released in two parts by Warner Bros. It’s produced by Charles Roven, Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder.
Justice League: Part One will start shooting in mid-April. It’s slated for release on November 17, 2017 while Part Two will hit theaters on June 14, 2019.
This should come as exciting and rewarding news for many that enjoy J.K. Simmons. Audiences greatly enjoyed his performances as J. Jonah Jameson in Sony’s Spider-Man trilogy. While many have lobbied for him to return as the Daily Bugle’s editor, it’s now apparent that the Academy Award winner will be part of the DC Films universe.
