After the huge success of Wonder Woman, there have been reports that Warner Bros. and DC will deemphasize the DCEU after Justice League, to focus on standalone films featuring our favorite heroes. However, during an interview with Total Film, J.K. Simmons talks about suiting up as Commissioner Gordon, and states that a script for a sequel to Justice League is being written:

"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."

This is sure to reassure fans who were concerned about the future of the DCEU post-Justice League. It also sounds like they hope to have a trilogy of films based around the Justice League. J.K. Simmons continues to talk about stepping into the shoes of the iconic Commissioner Gordon:

"That's an iconic thing, and 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."

From what we have seen of him in the Justice League trailers, it looks like he'll give us a memorable Commissioner Gordon.

Simple, honest, humble and matter-of-fact. Pure JK Simmons. What a nice guy. Go get them, and here's to hoping you get an awesome part in Batgirl.

His J. Jonah Jameson will be missed.
Ha1frican - 10/20/2017, 4:39 PM
@JonC - will be? Dude it’s been 10 years since his last movie as JJ lol
MrKnight - 10/20/2017, 8:28 PM
@JonC - Still can happen since laurence fishburne is both in dceu and mcu

Ryguy88 - 10/20/2017, 8:31 PM
@MrKnight - wait, was is Fishbourne doing there anyways?
MrKnight - 10/20/2017, 9:01 PM
@Ryguy88 - He was cast as bill foster aka goliath in ant man and the wasp.

Ryguy88 - 10/21/2017, 10:40 AM
@MrKnight - oh shit! Is he going to be the main villain for that?
MrKnight - 10/21/2017, 10:55 AM
@Ryguy88 - He's a superhero in the comics.
Ryguy88 - 10/21/2017, 12:04 PM
@MrKnight - I thought he was both. Regardless this is cool news. I also just read that Ghost will be in the movie too.

Well WB is certainly counting their egg's before the hatch on a sequel.
pitbull76 - 10/20/2017, 4:12 PM
@pitbull76 - they*
JoeMomma29 - 10/20/2017, 4:13 PM
@pitbull76 - Not really.......all their movies have done well financially at the box office.

Even their worse film SS did over 700 million and won an Oscar......yeah they are not counting their eggs before they hatch.....they are running a farm at this point.
MUTO123 - 10/20/2017, 4:15 PM
@JoeMomma29 - Let's just hope that the farm doesn't catch on fire.
JoeMomma29 - 10/20/2017, 4:15 PM
@MUTO123 - LOL! Well than they are will be in the fried chicken business!
JoeMomma29 - 10/20/2017, 4:17 PM
@pitbull76 - And let me make it clear they are on pace with Marvel from a financial point of view.......not so much a critical point of view. WB needs to realize if they put out good movies they will get more revenue..........Imagine what BvS could have done if it was spot on?
pitbull76 - 10/20/2017, 4:18 PM
@JoeMomma29 - Just because all the other ones made money does not mean justice league will.It will come down to the critics and word of mouth.They want to hit that $1b mark but hey i hope im wrong.
JoeMomma29 - 10/20/2017, 4:24 PM
@pitbull76 - Of course they want to hit 1 Billion.....hence why Zack was given the boot!

I am agreement with you that WB can make a lot more money if they put out better films.
JoeMomma29 - 10/20/2017, 4:12 PM
But.....but the DCEU is dead!!!!! It was going to end after BvS, than SS, than WW, and now JL.....but wait we still have Aquaman.......

I hope this is true.
Darlene1974 - 10/20/2017, 4:13 PM
Hopefully this upcoming DCEU films are huge huge success first... Then we'll see...
JoeMomma29 - 10/20/2017, 4:14 PM
@Darlene1974 - Well from a financial point of view they are a huge success.....four films in and they have done over 3 billion.
Darlene1974 - 10/20/2017, 4:17 PM
