Almost a decade after he played J. Jonah Jameson in Sam Raimi’s last Spider-Man film, it was announced that Oscar-winner J.K. Simmons would be taking on the role of Commissioner Gordon in Justice League.

Simmons recently spoke with Collider about playing Gotham’s finest, saying, “I’m sure there will be differences and similarities with what Gary Oldman or Pat Hingle have done before. But I’m just going to try to do my take on it and be as informed as I can about the rich history of the Batman universe.”

Ben Affleck is also directing and starring in a standalone Batman film, although its unknown if Simmons will appear in that project.

Justice League: Part One comes out on November 17, 2017. The second half hits theaters on June 14, 2019.
