J.K Simmons, who plays Commissioner Gordon in Justice League has revealed that a sequel to the film is currently being written.
This will be Simmons’ first foray into the DC cinematic universe, but definitely not his last, as he’ll be working on future DC projects, such as Matt Reeve’s The Batman. When speaking with Total Film magazine, Simmons discussed how there are future films in the works, and how they’ll expand on his character:
“But this is the first Justice League movie — we hope — of a few. They’re working on scripts for The Batman and for the next Justice League movie. It introduces my incarnation of Commissioner Gordon. I don’t have a lot to do. I feel like I just dipped my toe in the water of who Commissioner Gordon will be.”
It’s interesting how Simmons says he doesn’t get much to do, which makes us think his role is essentially a glorified cameo. Hopefully, his role will be expanded upon in the solo Batman film.

In Justice League, fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League is directed by Zack Snyder with post-production duties handled by Joss Whedon. The film stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jeremy Irons and Jesse Eisenberg.
Justice League hits theaters on November 11, 2017.
