J.K. Simmons will step into the DC Universe as Gotham City’s Commissioner Gordon in the forthcoming JUSTICE LEAGUE. The Academy Award-winning actor joins all-star cast Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher for the two-part blockbuster.
Zack Snyder will direct the movie written by Chris Terrio. Snyder will also produce with Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder. The first installment of the movie is slated to be released on Nov 17, 2017, while part two will hit theaters June 14, 2019.
