AceShowbiz - A sequel to "Justice League" is already in development at Warner Bros, star J.K. Simmons confirms. The Oscar winner, who plays Commissioner Gordon in the DCEU, reveals in an interview with Total Film that a script for "Justice League 2" is being written.
Simmons first talks about playing Commissioner Gordon in the first "Justice League" movie. "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!" the 62-year-old says.
"But this is the first 'Justice League' movie - we hope - of a few," he continues, before revealing that "they're working on scripts for 'The Batman' and for the next 'Justice League' movie. 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."
"That's an iconic thing, and obviously there are some very big shoes that I'm attempting to step into," the "Whiplash" actor goes on saying. "Some really, really wonderful actors have played that part before," he adds. "It's like all of a sudden everyone in London is doing 'Hamlet'. Now it's my turn to be Gordon."
It's been confirmed that Zack Snyder will direct "Justice League 2". The sequel was initially scheduled to be released in June 2019, but has since been delayed to accommodate the release for Matt Reeves' "The Batman". While the Batman solo film has yet to set a release date, the next "Justice League" film is now set for a November 11, 2019 release.
"Justice League" is coming in theaters across the nation on November 17. It stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash and Ray Fisher as Cyborg. Other cast members include Amy Adams, Amber Heard, Jeremy Irons, Willem Dafoe, Ciaran Hinds and Diane Lane.
