Here’s Your First Official Look at J.K. Simmons as Jim Gordon in JUSTICE LEAGUE

Oh, Zack Snyder, you glorious tease.

Earlier today, the Justice League director Tweeted out an image of himself in front of the Bat-signal, with the “Batman day” hashtag. It was a cool picture, but nothing really that we hadn’t seen before. It was, however, just a precursor to showing a more appropriate character ready to shine a light on the sky. You might say that in his first Tweet, Snyder was j/k. In this one, Simmons is J.K.

His massive Zeus-like muscles seen in recent gym photos look to be well-hidden under a much more traditional Commissioner Gordon look, which, as always, shows that whatever one thinks of Zack Snyder’s movies, he tends to get the visuals fairly dead-on. Although in real life, the small details on that Bat-Signal would probably be lost a bit in projection, this looks absolutely like summoning Batman should. And from what we’ve heard in set reports, it’s not just Batman who’ll be coming to the rooftop…

While most of us have fond memories of Gary Oldman, given that a recast was inevitable it looks like they’ve done right by the Commish with J.K. Simmons, who’ll presumably be nicer to ol’ growly voice than he was to ol’ web-head the last time he encountered a superhero.

Is this the guy you want to see summoning the league? Will he, as one long-ago Ain’t It Cool story legendarily put it, have a beer and “cheet” on his wife? Let us know in comments what you think of this reveal that “Gordon’s alive!”
