JK Simmons On Commissioner Gordon's "Badass" Side For Justice League


While talking recently to Entertainment Weekly, JK Simmons discussed about how he hopes to show the more badass side to the beloved character, Commissioner Gordon. He still has one last trip to London to finish off his duties for Justice League, but he has already worked with the likes of Ben Affleck (Bruce Wayne/Batman), Ezra Miller (Barry Allen/The Flash), Gal Gadot (Diana Prince/Wonder Woman), director Zack Snyder, and more.

“[Filming has] been a fun experience, and knock wood, if it continues, then I’ll hopefully get to play Commissioner Gordon in a handful of movies,” Simmons wishes.

“People of my generation remember Commissioner Gordon as this jolly, ineffectual Santa Claus type, and I think over the years in the comics there’s definitely much more of a badass side to him,” he explains. “One of the things that’s interesting to me is investigating hopefully a little bit more of that badass [side]…You’re living in a universe where it’s pretty tough to be a badass compared to somebody like Batman, but in the universe of non-superheroes I like the idea of Commissioner Gordon as a guy that can take care of himself, a guy that’s a real partner to Batman, not just a guy that turns on the bat signal and goes, ‘Help! Help, Batman!’”

Here's hoping that he not only shows this side of Gordon in Justice League but in other installments of the DCEU too. Me personally I was thrilled when I heard that he would be playing Jim Gordon and I am still excited to see his portrayal.

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy.  Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat.  But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Directed by Zack Snyder, this marks the big screen debut of the Justice League, featuring an all-star lineup: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher. With JK Simmons as Commissioner Gordon, Amber Heard as Mera, and Willem Dafoe as Vulko.
