Gary Oldman Talks J.K. Simmons As Commissioner Gordon

While attending Cinemacon, caught up with Gary Oldman and got his thoughts on J.K. Simmons playing the role of Commissioner Gordon in the DC Extended Universe.

“J.K. Simmons doesn’t need any advice from me. He’s a wonderful actor. I’m intrigued to see what he does with it. I’m looking forward to it. Gordon was very good to me so I wish him a lot of luck. I’m excited for him.”

Oldman portrayed Gordon in the Dark Knight trilogy, and did an incredible job. His character was an integral part of that series; the performances were top notch through all three films.

Justice League, Simmons’ first appearance in the role, releases on November 17, 2017.

“Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s (Henry Cavill) selfless act, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) enlists newfound ally Diana Prince to face an even greater threat. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to recruit a team to stand against this newly awakened enemy. Despite the formation of an unprecedented league of heroes — Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash — it may be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.”
