J.K. Simmons to play Commissioner Gordon in Justice League
News broke earlier today that Zack Synder has chosen Oscar winning J.K. Simmons to portray Commissioner Gordon in the upcoming two-part Justice League film.
With an impressive history behind him and after playing (what is probably his most famous role) J Jonah Jameson in the Sam Raimi Spiderman franchise, its no surprise why Synder wanted Simmons on the roster for this huge double bill in the DC Cinematic Universe.
Justice League - Part 1 is due to begin filming within the next month and will bring together a mammoth cast including Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Aquaman (Jason Mamoa), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and more.
Part 1 of the Justice League is scheduled for a November 17th 2017 release date with Part 2 following on June 14th 2019.
But as you may know, before the Justice League comes Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice which swoops into UK Cinemas on March 25th this year.
