Is J.K. Simmons really playing Darkseid
Earlier this year J.K. Simmons was announced as Commissioner Gordon and I thought it as great casting as J.K. is an Academy Award winning actor and great character actor. We all primarily remember him as J. Jonah Jameson in Sam Rami's Spider-Man films, but now that he will be in the upcoming Justice League film directed by Zack Snyder, well, lets just say one needs to be League Fit.
What's interesting is that J.K. Simmons is only play Commissioner Gordon. And while lately the character of Commissioner Gordon has been some kind of Ex-military guy, its hard to see why Simmons is getting so buff. I mean, I never expected to see this 61 year old actor do a glamour shot to show off his physique as Commissioner Gordon, who traditionally smokes a pipe and wears long trench coats. So, to me, it looks more like this world class actor just might be playing the odious villain Darkseid. Yeah, its a long shot. Its jut going to be weird and even a tad bit awesome to see a Commissioner Gordon that looks like he could punch out Superman.
Justice League is slated to hit theaters 17 November 2017.
As always, See you in the Theater.
