Though there's been a lot of conversation about how buff he's gotten, not much is known about JK Simmons' role as Commissioner Gordon in "Justice League: Part One," other than that it's "small." In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Simmons provided a bit more information about the film's version of the character.
"In this first installment of the 'Justice League,' Commissioner Gordon is not a particularly sizable part," Simmons explained. "We just kind of introduce him and see a little bit of his interactions with Batman -- and with most of the Justice League."
"That was a really fun set," he went on. "Zack [Snyder] runs sort of a big, happy family and it's obviously, in many ways, a very different work environment when you're working on a big, giant movie like that than a relatively small movie like 'The Meddler.' But at the end of the day, the director is the one who sets the tone. And one of the things that Zack and Lorene [Scafaria, the writer and director of 'The Meddler'] have in common is they're just nice, smart, competent, fun people that you don't mind spending a 12-hour day with."
Simmons will make his debut as Commissioner Gordon in Zack Snyder’s “Justice League: Part One” alongside Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Henry Cavill, Ezra Miller and more. The film is due in theaters November 17, 2017.
