JUSTICE LEAGUE Star J.K. Simmons Unsure When He'll Return As Commissioner Gordon After THE BATMAN Delay

With Joe Manganiello making it clear he's no longer sure about whether he'll star in The Batman, now J.K. Simmons is unsure what's next for Jim Gordon as he discusses his role in Justice League.

J.K. Simmons will make his debut as Commissioner Jim Gordon in Justice League this November, and while we've known for a while that he'll have a relatively small role in the highly anticipated release, it no longer sounds like the actor is certain what's next for him. That can be blamed on the delay of The Batman, something which came as a result of Matt Reeves replacing Ben Affleck as director.

"My part in the first film coming out this fall is very, very small… It’s a little introduction of the character," Simmons reiterated in a recent interview with Screen Crush when asked what's next for him. "But whenever the next one gets off the ground, whether it’s ‘The Batman’ movie or the ‘Justice League’ sequel, and I know those things are getting shuffled around right now … we thought we might be getting to work pretty soon on ‘The Batman,’ but we’ll see what the future brings.
Hopefully that’ll be another comic-book character that I get to take two or three or four cracks at."

It doesn't sound like Simmons has moved on from the role (something which would be hard considering the fact his Gordon will be showing up in Justice League later this year), but he's clearly not sure when Warner Bros. will be calling him up to return! The Batman was originally set to begin shooting in the next couple of months. Now, cameras are unlikely to start rolling until well int 2018.

As always, be sure to let us know your thoughts on Simmons' comments in the usual place.
