With less than a month to go for Justice League, news is already out that the sequel to it has already entered the production stage. Actor J.K. Simmons, who plays Detective James ‘Jim’ Gordon in the upcoming movie, has shed some light on the future of the Justice League.
In an interview with Total Film Magazine, Simmons confirmed that the script for the Justice League sequel is already being written. Talking about his role in the Justice League, Simmons said:
“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 are 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.”
Another news which has surfaced regarding the sequel might attract some polarizing reactions. Director Zack Snyder will be at the helm for the Justice League sequel. For fans of Man of Steel and Batman v Superman : Dawn of Justice, this comes as an exciting news. But for the ones who were left unimpressed with Snyder’s vision, this will surely be a major disappointment.
In early March of this year, Zack Snyder had to deal with the loss of his daughter, who had committed suicide. Later in May, Snyder had to leave the post-production team of Justice League to spend some time with his grieving family. But now it seems, Snyder is back to his feet to re-join the DC Extended Universe.
The sequel was originally planned to be released in June, 2019, but has since been delayed to accommodate Matt Reeves’ The Batman, starring Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman.
Justice League hits the theaters on November 17, 2017.
