J.K. Simmons who’s playing Commissioner Gordon in the DC Extended Universe, has confirmed in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, that he has finished his scenes for Justice League and that most of his scenes are with Ben Affleck, who plays Batman.
Simmons also goes on to praise director Zack Snyder, stating he’s a nice, smart, competent, fun person, that he didn’t mind spending 12 hour days with.
I’m not arguing with you on that, J.K. And you’re moving back into your own superhero world with Justice League — how is filming going?
My part is done. They are filming that for basically most of 2016, so some of the superheroes are still at work in jolly old London, but I’m back home with my family.
Playing Commissioner Gordon, I assume that most of your scenes are with Ben Affleck’s Batman? But did you get to play around with anyone else on the team?
Yeah, mostly with Ben. In this first installment of the Justice League, Commissioner Gordon is not a particularly sizable part. 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. 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 have in common is they’re just nice, smart, competent, fun people that you don’t mind spending a 12-hour day with.
