Commissioner Gordon from Justice League Movie First Look
If you are excited for the upcoming Justice League movie that is starring an all-star cast of people then you have probably already clicked that “read more” tag at the bottom of this snippet. After the jump we have the first look at J.K. Simmons portraying Commissioner Jim Gordon in the new Justice League movie, currently in the filming stage. Some things are interesting in this snapshot from the rooftops.
First, J.K. Simmons is portraying a much younger Commissioner Gordon than we are used to seeing (unless you are a fan of Fox’s Gotham television series). For the most part, this character has been played by older actors, usually with at least salt and pepper hair, in the cartoons he has been portrayed as full on grayed over.
In the picture we have a younger Commissioner Gordon standing on the rooftop of what I presume is the police station. Also on that rooftop is a slightly different Bat Signal than we are used to seeing previously. The bat symbol is distorted quite a bit in my opinion.
What is interesting about this is, Commissioner Gordon apparently does not play a large role in the Justice League movie even though Batman (Ben Afleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) are headquartered there as they assemble the Justice League. I take it they won’t stay in Gotham very long?
The story for Justice League, as far as I know it right now, goes something like this. Batman has his faith in humanity restored after the selflessness of Superman reminds him how precious life is. Working with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) Batman begins bringing together others that have powers (um, Batman doesn’t have super powers) to help fight a new menace. Other characters from the DC Comics world set to make appearances include Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash.
We have to wait over a year for Justice League to hit so get ready for plenty of these “teaser” pieces from Twitter.
