It looks like Oscar-winner J.K. Simmons is swapping teams, as after playing Daily Planet editor J. Jonah Jameson in Sam Raimi’s Spider-man movies, he’s hopping across to the DC stable to play Commissioner Gordon in the Justice League movies, according to THR.
There’s not too much info on how the policeman will figure into the plot of the movie, but Simmons will join the likes of Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), the Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and his presence also suggest Gotham City will feature in the movie. The role will see the actor head to the Justice League: Part One set in mid-April, shortly after the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice.
Zack Snyder is directing the movie, which is due for release in November 2017, with Justice League: Part Two pencilled in for July 2019. It’s not known is Simmons is likely to be seen in any of the other planned DC movies.
