Jim Gordon’s character in DC Universe has always been portrayed as a tough cop. Although DCEU hasn’t been tight lipped about our superhero’s character description, details on Jim Gordon have been low profile. However, during a recent set visit, few journalists had the opportunity to see a shot including J.K. Simmons along with the Justice League members.
While they haven’t teased any details from their visit, J.K. Simmons himself shared some insight on playing Jim Gordon in Justice League to EW. During his interview Simmons shared his fascinating views on the realm of DC Universe and how its “tough to be a badass compared to somebody like Batman.” He went on to add that he liked “the idea of Commissioner Gordon as a guy that take care of himself” rather than a helpless cop using “the bat signal” and truly be of aid to Batman in chaotic times.
It definitely looks like DCEU plans on portraying Commissioner Jim Gordon accurately to the comic storyline. Readers of the New 52 could possibly find similarities of J.K. Simmons’ character to the comic version.
In other news, as Suicide Squad is exactly a month away from its release, a new movie poster has been found on the internet. According to Reddit user evilsnowcookie, the poster was found on “some forums.” While its likely to be a fan-art, it definitely got most fans’ attention.
Justice League will be hitting theaters on November 17th, 2016. On the other hand, fans can expect Suicide Squad on August 4th, 2016.
