Only last week we reported that JK Simmons said he’d never close the door on playing Spider-man’s disgruntled Newspaper editor J Jonah Jameson.
Well, we have to say JK, however far the door was already closed, it’s now completely shut because we can’t imagine you going back to The Daily Bugle now that you’re the DC Movie Universe’s Commissioner James Gordon in Zack Snyder’s Justice League movies.
While rumours have been SPOILERS that Gordon is dead in Batman V Superman SPOILERS END, it looks like there may be more to the story if Simmons is set for the sequel movie. In fairness, I had convinced myself that Brian Cranston was going to be the head of the GCPD but we at FTN HQ love this casting.
Gordon was most recently played superbly by Gary Oldman in the Dark Knight trilogy and we loved his take on him but we knew he wouldn’t be returning for this universe.
What do you think of this casting? Let us know…
Justice League Part One is scheduled to open on November 17, 2017.
