BREAKING: J.K. Simmons Joins the ‘Justice League’

J.K. Simmons has signed on to play Commissioner Gordon in the upcoming Justice League film(s).

According to The Hollywood Reporter‘s breaking story, Simmons will join the cast of superheroes (Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher) to play the Gotham City commissioner.

J.K. Simmons has been back in the superhero circuit as fans really want him back in the role of J. Jonah Jameson in the Marvel Universe. It appears he won’t be back in that role while he hops over to the DC side of things, and Ice Cube has been rumored to fill that void with Marvel. Commissioner Gordon was most recently played by Gary Oldman in Christoher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy, and is currently played by Ben McKenzie in the FOX series Gotham.

Justice League: Part One is ramping up production next month, and is set to hit theaters November 17, 2017. Part Two will be here June 14, 2019.
