This November’s ‘Justice League’ will see the introduction of a new Commissioner Jim Gordon to the DC Extended Universe – but it sounds like it will be a pretty short introduction. JK Simmons, who will make his debut as the time-honoured ally of Batman in the superhero ensemble piece from ‘Man of Steel’ and ‘Batman V Superman’ director Zack Snyder, has revealed in a new interview that he won’t be in the film much. Reintroduction might be the better word, given that Commissioner Gordon has been a staple of the ‘Batman’ movies, played by the late Pat Hingle in the Tim Burton and Joel Schumacher movies, and most recently by Gary Oldman in Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dark Knight’ trilogy.
“Rock Dog” is 3D animated comedy that’s based on the Chinese graphic novel, “Tibetan Rock Dog”. “Rock Dog” is directed by Ash Brannon, with a story and screenplay by him too. It features the voice talents of Luke Wilson (Bodi), Eddie Izzard (Angus Scattergood), J.K. Simmons (Khampa), Lewis Black (Linnux), Kenan Thompson (Riff), Mae Whitman (Darma), Jorge Garcia (Germur), Matt Dillon (Trey), and Sam Elliot (Fleetwood).

Speaking to Extra TV on the upcoming superhero projects and about what fans can expect, Affleck teased over the new additions we will see to the Batsuit in terms of tech and gadgets.
J.K. Simmons has not only revealed that he’s already finished his work on ‘Justice League’ but he’s also admitted that his role as Commissioner Jim Gordon in the blockbuster isn’t actually that big. Simmons was then quizzed about who he got to spend most of his scenes as Commissioner Jim Gordon with, which led him to remark, “Yeah, mostly with Ben [Affleck]. Which, off the back of the poor critical response to ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice’, is probably the nicest thing that ‘s been said about Zack Snyder in a while.
