J.K. Simmons will be playing Gordon, who is a staple of the Batman franchise and was last portrayed by Gary Oldman in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy. Simmons is not new to the superhero genre, as he famously played J. Jonah Jameson in the Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy as well.
It appears Snyder posted the image to celebrate #BatmanDay, the national social media holiday that celebrates anything and everything having to do with the Caped Crusader. This is surely one awesome way to do it. Simmons will be introduced in Justice League and will reprise his role in the upcoming Ben Affleck directed solo Batman movies coming to the DCEU as well.
Now, we just eagerly await for Ben Affleck or Joe Manganiello to share some cool #BatmanDay updates.
Are you excited to see Simmons tackle the role of Commissioner Gordon is Justice League? Sound off in the comments.
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.
