J.K. Simmons returning as Commissioner Gordon for Batgirl


By Geoff Borgonia July 31, 2021

Sources report that J.K. Simmons has been in talks to reprise his role as Commissioner James Gordon for the Batgirl HBO Max film starring Leslie Grace.

The role of Jim Gordon has been played in live action by many actors, including Ben Mckenzie in the Gotham TV series, among others.

One of the mental and emotional tortures the Joker hatches for Gordon is the assault and severe injury caused to Barbara Gordon.

Although James Gordon broke down from the horrific experience, the police commissioner pushed back and retained his sanity long enough for Batman to come.

Fans are generally happy that J.K. Simmons is returning to the Commissioner Gordon role.

J.K. Simmons reportedly signed on for a three-picture deal to appear as the character since his first one in Justice League (2017).

If J.K. Simmons is returning to the Commissioner Jim Gordon role, then could it also mean Ben Affleck isn’t done with the Batman role for the DCEU?

It is certainly possible for Ben Affleck’s fan-favorite version of Bruce Wayne/Batman to return after his locked-in role in The Flash.
