Westworld's Jeffery Wright to play Jim Gordon in new Batman movie

The new Batman movie has got some fans quite perplexed at who will be taking on the legendary characters, and one of these characters is Batman's good friend in the Gotham City Police Department, Commissioner Jim Gordon.


We now have some news out of THR that has said that Westworld actor Jeffery Wright is currently in talks with Warner about taking on the role of the Commissioner. Who has already played Jim Gordon? Well, if Wright is to take on the role of the Commissioner his performance would be going up against Gary Oldman's portrayal in Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy and J.K Simmons in Zack Snyder's Justice League.

This new Batman movie will be focusing much more on the detective side of Batman that hasn't been shown on the big screen as of yet. Judging from this angle, I think it would be safe to assume that since we will be seeing a more detective orientated Batman that Gordon's role would become much more important, therefore giving more screen time etc. For those that didn't know, Robert Pattinson will be taking on the role as the Caped Crusader and the film is expected to hit theaters on June 25, 2021.
