When discussing Justice League, conversations tend to skew towards the reshoots. From all we’ve heard, a good chunk of the film was reshot, but ever since Snyder departed the film, the conversation has shifted to people speculating a huge change in tone as Joss Whedon takes control.
Speaking with Red Carpet News, actor J.K. Simmons, who plays Commissioner Gordon in Justice League, expressed whether or not he thinks the tone would be changing, and in the process revealed his non-involvement with the film after principal photography.
“No, I don’t think so, and I wasn’t involved with Joss at all. It was just some of the reshoots, and I wasn’t involved in that. But I think he’s really dedicated to finishing the story that Zack was telling. Again, that’s my understanding from my vantage point, and I haven’t met Joss, so I’m probably not the guy to answer that question.”
So while we can’t exactly take his word that they haven’t changed Justice League’s tone, we can take it as gospel that he hasn’t been involved in the reshoots, meaning that his role as Gordon is virtually unchanged. This isn’t exactly a surprise, as Gordon was revealed to only have a small role to begin with, so Whedon and co. not feeling the need to add on minutes to the supporting cast certainly makes sense.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s (Henry Cavill) selfless act, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) enlists newfound ally Diana Prince to face an even greater threat. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to recruit a team to stand against this newly awakened enemy. Despite the formation of an unprecedented league of heroes — Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash — it may be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League hits theaters on November 17, 2017.
