Gotham has found its Police Commissioner, as J.K Simmons is set to play Batman’s most trusted ally within the force. Justice League: Part One is slated for release next year, and is planned to begin filming this coming April.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Simmons will join the likes of Ben Affleck (Batman), Henry Cavil (Superman), Ezra Miller (The Flash), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Jason Mamoa (Aquaman), and Ray Fisher (Cyborg). The film marks the teams cinematic debut for DC, and is set to compete against Marvel’s very own Avengers franchise.
The actor isn’t really new to the Superhero scene either, as he originally appeared as loud mouthed editor-in-chief J. Jonah Jameson in the Spider-Man series. There have been reports that fans have asked for his return to the rebooted franchise, but it seems like DC has got a hold of him now.
