Following Justice League’s theatrical release in 2017, Zack Snyder’s original version of the movie will finally make its way to HBO Max next year. J.K. Simmons’ Commissioner Gordon didn’t have much to do in the movie, previously teasing that there was actually “a little bit more” than what was shown in the theatrical cut. It’s unclear how much bigger of a role he originally had but the veteran actor is willing to whatever it takes for Snyder to finish his version.
“Well, the Snyder cut is happening now at long last, as DC fans know,” Simmons told Screen Rant. “I'm excited that I'm a part of it.”
“As far as I know, I've already done everything I have to do to be a part of Zack's cut,” he added. “Which is to tell Zack, ‘Yes, I want to be a part of your cut.’”
Simmons said if ever he has any additional dialogue to record or any additional scenes to shoot, whatever it is, he’d be “happy” to do it for Snyder.
The Snyder Cut is expected to feature the director's principal photography that was done during 2016, so Simmons' work could already be complete. There are currently no confirmed plans for more filming to happen, though it is possible that there will be some additional dialogue to be recorded by some actors, and Simmons' desire could be realized. It’ll be interesting to see how Simmon's part will play out in the Snyder Cut, and fans can’t wait to see what’s to come.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League is expected to arrive on HBO Max in early 2021.
