Veteran film and television actor J.K. Simmons has been cast as Commissioner James Gordon for 2017's Justice League - Part One, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The film, which is scheduled to begin shooting this April, is said to feature Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), the Flash (Ezra Miller), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and Lois Lane (Amy Adams).
Zack Snyder is directing Justie League - Part One, based off a script from Chris Terrio. The film is being produced by Charles Roven, Snyder and Deborah Snyder.
Simmons has played numerous roles in superhero-based television and film, ranging from J. Jonah Jameson in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy and various Marvel animated series, to also playing two roles in DC animated shows: General Wade Eiling in Justice League Unlimited and Evil Star in Batman: The Brave & The Bold.
While not definitive, this new role as Justice League's Commissioner Gordon seem to make Simmons' return to the role of J. Jonah Jameson unlikely.
Justice League - Part One is scheduled to debut in theaters November 17, 2017.
