Oscar winner J.K. Simmons has been cast as the Gotham City police commissioner. This is pretty great casting. Although I very much enjoyed the previous version where Gary Oldman played the character.
Recently J.K responded to the petition for bringing him back as J.Jonah Jameson for The Spectacular Spider-Man, saying he would be open to return to the role., This however might be closing that door ? Not that I think JJJ is set to appear onscreen in the first outing for Tom Holland as the wall crawler.
Due to start filming in April, “Justice League Part One” is scheduled to open on November 17, 2017, Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot will first be seen as Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman in Turkish Airlines commercial “Batman v Superman v Cave Troll: Dawn of Justice” March 25, 2016. Well, March 22th for me 😉
Obviously this is a big deal for J.K . He has that Oscar which i bet raises his payday. Justice League ( Part One and Two ) might not feature his character a whole lot, but then there is the standalone Batman film(s) which Ben Affleck will direct and star inn. Hopefully Simmons will knock it out of the park so to speak.
What say you to this casting. Will J.K do a better job than Oldman ? Who is your fav Gordon so far ?Any love for Pat Hingle ?
Exclusive to the internet 🙂
This one i am very much looking forward to seeing. Which is good cause the only other films coming out that weekend is Unfriended , and Paul Blart Fat Fucking Mall Cop 2. Both of which are rated R for RETARDED.
Now back to actual good movies !!
The film, based on Tom Rob Smith’s 2008 bestseller, stars Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises, Mad Mad: Fury Road), Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows), Joel Kinnaman (“The Killing,” RoboCop), Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty, Terminator Genisys) and Vincent Cassel (Black Swan, Trance).
Today the studio released these 3 character poster :
A politically-charged serial killer thriller set in 1953 Soviet Russia, Child 44 chronicles the crisis of conscience for secret police agent Leo Demidov (Hardy), who loses status, power and home when he refuses to denounce his own wife, Raisa (Rapace), as a traitor. Exiled from Moscow to a grim provincial outpost, Leo and Raisa join forces with General Mikhail Nesterov (Oldman) to track down a serial killer who preys on young boys. Their quest for justice threatens a system-wide cover-up enforced by Leo’s psychopathic rival Vasili (Kinnaman), who insists “There is no crime in Paradise.”
