Justice League Finds Its Commissioner Gordon

J.K. Simmons has been cast as Commissioner Jim Gordon.

Simmons, who won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for last year’s Whiplash, will first appear in the role in next year’s Justice League: Part One, before reprising the role for Part Two in 2019.

There is also a chance of him appearing in other films in the canon, such as Ben Affleck’s rumoured solo Batman outing.

Simmons is already familiar to superhero movies, with his celebrated role as J. Jonah Jameson in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man movies. It was hoped by many that he would return to the role in Marvel and Sony’s Spider-Man reboot in 2017, though that now appears unlikely.

The Commissioner Gordon character is a regular staple of Batman media, with Gary Oldman portraying him in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy, while Ben McKenzie is currently playing the role as a younger Gordon in Gotham.

Justice League: Part One is due for release on 17 November 2017, with the follow-up due to land on 14 June 2019.
