'Justice League' Release Date, News: JK Simmons Teases His Commissioner Gordon Role, Calls It 'Very Small'
This Nov. 17, the highly anticipated "Justice League" is arriving to theaters and it seemingly takes a page from Marvel's book. The film's trailer hints at some comic relief from the dark and brooding "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" that debuted last year. Zack Snyder admitted to changing up the formula in the upcoming "Justice League," and it seems that JK Simmons, who play Commissioner Jim Gordon in the film, echoes the same sentiments.
Simmons On His Involvement
According to The Wrap, JK Simmons teased his Commissioner Gordon role in "Justice League," admitting that it's "very, very small." The actor explained that his Commissioner Gordon role is being given an "introduction" in the upcoming "Justice League" movie. He added that when another film follows "Justice League," that's when his character may finally get more of the spotlight.
According to JK Simmons, both "The Batman," which is being plagued with production problems and the "Justice League" sequel are "getting shuffled around right now." Nonetheless, he remains hopeful that his Commissioner Gordon role will be a character that he can play multiple times across several films.
Matt Reeves has been hired as the new "The Batman" director, who's also tasked to rewrite the whole thing. As for the "Justice League" sequel, that would most likely highly depend on how the upcoming film will do box office-wise.
Who Else Will Be In The Movie?
As per Screenrant, "Justice League" won't only introduce JK Simmons's Commissioner Gordon, but also Jeremy Irons' Alfred, which is another small role that would hopefully get a bigger part in the upcoming "The Batman" and possibly, "Justice League 2."
Director Zack Snyder previously teased JK Simmons in his Commissioner Gordon role in a black and white photo posted on social media. Comment below on what you're looking forward to the most in "Justice League" and "The Batman." "Justice League" arrives on Nov. 17.
