Batman Day 2016: J.K. Simmons’ Commissioner Gordon in Zach Snyder’s ‘Justice League’

Zach Snyder gave fans more than just the Bat-signal for Batman Day 2016.  Last Saturday, he tweeted the first photo of Oscar winner J.K. Simmons as Gotham City police commissioner James ‘Jim’ Gordon for the upcoming “Justice League”.

Simmons joins Gary Oldman, Pat Hingle, and Neil Hamilton in the list of the actors who’ve played the role of the veteran lawman who’s willing to outside the law to help his masked and brooding friend bring justice in Gotham against the criminals and the corrupt: the monsters that continues to run wild and mad in their city.  But before becoming the commish, Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) was an ex-cop: a fallen hero making ends meet as a lone-wolf bounty hunter in the new season of “Gotham” every Monday on FOX.  Nevertheless, it was James ‘Jim’ Gordon that led to the rise of boy billionaire Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) becoming more than just the true son of Gotham, more than just the prince of Gotham, more than just a soldier, more than just a vigilante.  One day, Bruce Wayne will rise to become a crusader himself: the Caped Crusader who will bring down the wrath of the villains with his vengeance as the night, the Dark Knight named the Batman.

Picking up where “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” left off, “Justice League” finds Batman (Ben Affleck) honoring the heroic sacrifice the Man of Steel (Henry Cavill) made in the climactic fight with Doomsday.  With the help of Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Batman seeks out Aquaman (Jason Momoa), the Flash (Ezra Miller), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) in becoming the world’s finest of superheroes for the upcoming battle to save Earth.

“Justice League” is set for November 2017.
