J.K. Simmons says a Justice League sequel is in development

Justice League J.K. Simmons

As JUSTICE LEAGUE was initially announced as JUSTICE LEAGUE - PART ONE, with JUSTICE LEAGUE - PART TWO set to follow on June 2019, it's far from a surprise that another flick following the adventures of Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Flash (Ezra Miller), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and Superman (Henry Cavill) is in the works. However, as the JUSTICE LEAGUE sequel was later delayed and DC Entertainment president Diane Nelson and DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns have said that future DC movies will feature less universe building, we weren't exactly positive if Warner Bros. was currently working on the sequel.

During an interview with Total Film, J.K. Simmons spoke about playing Commissioner Gordon in JUSTICE LEAGUE as well as revealing that a script for the sequel is underway.

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. 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.

Although J.K. Simmons won't have a huge role in JUSTICE LEAGUE, he does seem very pleased to be playing the character, saying, "obviously there are some very big shoes that I'm attempting to step into. Some really, really wonderful actors have played that part before. It's like all of a sudden everyone in London is doing Hamlet. Now it's my turn to be Gordon." JUSTICE LEAGUE will hit theaters on November 17, 2017.
