Casting and production news for the upcoming Batgirl movie is pouring in, with a familiar face popping back up in Gotham City for the project. The Hollywood Reporter has stated that J.K. Simmons is in talks to reprise the role of Commissioner Gordon for the project.
Simmons first played Gordon back in Justice League, where he infamously got completely shredded for a role which netted him a miniscule amount of time on screen–though with any luck that’s about to change. In DC Comics, Gordon is the father of Barbara AKA Batgirl (though he is usually unaware of his daughter’s secret vigilante lifestyle). Batgirl herself was recently cast as In The Heights alum Leslie Grace.
