Warner Bros. is just a couple of weeks away from releasing Justice League, and it's now been revealed that the studio is already at work on a sequel's script.
The script for Justice League 2, where the team will potentially face off against Darkseid, is underway according to J. K. Simmons, the actor who plays Commissioner Gordon in the DC Extended Universe. Speaking to Total Film, Simmons explained what we can expect in the upcoming film, and teased that the sequel is indeed coming.
"Well, Commissioner Gordon wears a trench coat in every scene, so I don't know that the 'pumped up' part is going to be all that evident, especially when you're standing next to Batman! But this is the first Justice League movie - we hope - of a few," the actor explained.
"They're working on scripts for The Batman and for the next Justice League movie," he revealed. "It introduces my incarnation of Commissioner Gordon. I don't have a lot to do. I feel like I just dipped my toe in the water of who Commissioner Gordon will be." Typically a supporting character of Batman in the comics, it's likely the Simmons will reprise the role in both The Batman and the untitled Justice League sequel.
Opening Nov. 17, Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Raymond Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Amber Heard as Mera and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
