We Also Get Some Teases About J.K. Simmons and Ben Affleck Working Together!
As expected, J.K. Simmons will spend most of his time with Batman, himself! Talking about his role as Commissioner Gordon, Simmons gives a preview as what to expect from 2017’s ‘Justice League‘.
He also talked about the “fun set” that Zack Snyder has created.
J.K. Simmons had this to say to Entertainment Weekly:
“Yeah, mostly with Ben. In this first installment of the Justice League, Commissioner Gordon is not a particularly sizable part. We just kind of introduce him and see a little bit of his interactions with Batman — and with most of the Justice League.
That was a really fun set. Zack [Snyder] runs sort of a big, happy family and it’s obviously, in many ways, a very different work environment when you’re working on a big, giant movie like that than a relatively small movie like The Meddler.
But at the end of the day, the director is the one who sets the tone. And one of the things that Zack and Lorene have in common is they’re just nice, smart, competent, fun people that you don’t mind spending a 12-hour day with. My part is done. They are filming that for basically most of 2016, so some of the superheroes are still at work in jolly old London, but I’m back home with my family.”
Looks like the movie won’t be wrapping filming anytime soon. They are not trying to rush anything along when it comes to making ‘Justice League‘. I, personally, love seeing the praise for Zack Snyder. His work as a director and reputation as someone who brings a great atmosphere to his sets is admirable. Love seeing this good connection with DC films and their artist.
Are you excited to see J.K. Simmons turn as Commissioner Gordon?
