Everyone knows JK Simmons for his multitude of roles. For some, he’s the pitchman for the Farmer’s Insurance ads. For other’s he’s famous for his roles in Law & Order, New York Undercover, and makes us wet our beds for his roles in HBO’s Oz and his Oscar-winning role in Whiplash. Within the Geek community, he flawlessly played J. Jonah Jameson in Sam Rami’s Spider-Man trilogy. Recently JK Simmons was cast to play Commissioner Gordon in the upcoming Justice League movie, and will probably reprise that role for the Ben Affleck solo Batman film. Now that filming for the Justice League movie has started, fans are starting to get a look at Simmons for this role.
A new report claims Warner Bros. is considering four possible titles for their Justice League movie, which is currently in production. Earlier this year it was announced that production would take place on April 11th for the joining of the superheroes. Though Warner Bros. has been silent as to any confirmation that filming is taking place, the studio has its cast set at Pinewood Studios, located in the United Kingdom.
Some have speculated that the studio’s keeping hush because things are still in development… such as a title. It has pretty much been established that ‘Justice League: Part I’ was simply a working title. With the news today, we see that was the case. (more…)

From “Sad Affleck” to corporate and creative shake-ups behind the scenes at Warner Bros., criticism, and the fallout therein, has been nonstop since the release of Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Yes, we live in a world where a movie that makes $900 million is seen as a profound disappointment, but when your movie features, arguably, the two biggest superheroes of all time, “almost a billion dollars” just isn’t good enough. Pretty much every cultural commentator’s been asked to autopsy Batman V. Superman’s “just not as successful as it should have been status,” but the situation requires a dispassionate voice of someone unafraid to be candid. Someone like Batman’s trusty butler, Alfred. Maybe the guy that plays him will suffice. (more…)

Budget was agreed upon, the location for filming was decided, the principal shooting for the film was set to begin. Heck, even a title was chosen… Justice League Mortal. Then the writer’s strike of 2007 and Warner Bros. indefinitely putting the hold on what could have been an outstanding film which held true to the comic books. (more…)
