Is Commissioner Jim Gordon in BATMAN v SUPERMAN?
According to the aforementioned FOBOF (friend of Batman-On-Film), that’s what he’s hearing. Since the Batman of BvS is supposed to be a “seasoned, weary, grizzled crime-fighting veteran,” it’s safe to assume that most – if not all – of the Batman Family (and Bat-Villains) already exist in the new DC Cinematic Universe. Based on that line of thinking, a short appearance by Jim Gordon certainly isn’t out the realm of possibility. However, I’ve got to think that since the role of Gordon is such an iconic and important part of the Batman mythos, if the character was really in the film the part would have already been cast and we’d know with whom.
The character was created by Bill Finger and Bob Kane, and made his first appearance in Detective Comics #27 (May 1939). The character has portrayed in live-action format by many actors. For television, Neil Hamilton played Gordon on the on television 1960's campy television series, and for Fox's Batman-less series he is being played by Ben McKenzie. On film, Gordon first appeared in the 1949 Batman mini-movies, played by Lyle Talbot. Pat Hingle played the part in both the Tim Burton Batman films as wells as the Joel Schumacher films. Lastly, Gary Oldman won high praise for his performance as Gordon in Christopher Nolan's epic Batman trilogy. He'll be a tough act to follow.
BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE - Zack Snyder will direct. It's written by Chris Terrio, from a screenplay by David S. Goyer. The film stars: Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent and Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne. The cast also includes: Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Ma Kent, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince. Will arrive in theaters May 6, 2016.
