The Batman: Jeffrey Wright In Talks To Join Cast For Warner Bros-DC Film


The Hollywood Reporter is exclusively reporting that Jeffrey Wright is in negotiations to play the role of Commissioner Gordon opposite Robert Pattinson‘s Bruce Wayne in Matt Reeves’ upcoming feature The Batman.

 

Matt Reeves was brought on board the project back in February 2017, taking over the reigns of directing the film that Ben Affleck was originally set to direct based on a script he wrote with Geoff Johns. Since then, Reeves has been adapting the script for The Batman along with Ben Affleck, upon which Affleck revealed in January that he wouldn’t be reprising the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman for Reeves’ version.

 

Jim Gordon is a Detective at the Gotham City Police Department that eventually becomes the Commissioner during the course of the comic canon, who becomes an ally of The Dark Knight, so it’s a question of whether Wright will be playing a seasoned commissioner, or a detective making his way up the ranks.

 

In recent years the role has bee portrayed by Gary Oldman in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, while J.K Simmons portrayed the character in Justice League.

 

The Batman is scheduled for cinematic release on the 25th June 2021.
