Director Zack Snyder has revealed a first look at J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon in “Justice League.”

In the photo, Simmons stands next to the bat-signal, while he glares at the sky. The director also shared a color image of himself beside the well-known image.

In March, it was announced that Simmons was cast in “Justice League,” having taken over the role from Gary Oldman, who played the police commissioner in Christopher Nolan‘s “Dark Knight” trilogy. The character also currently appears on the small screen, with Ben McKenzie as Commissioner Gordon on Fox’s “Gotham.”

Snyder is directing “Justice League,” which unites superheroes Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher).

Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder are producing the two-part epic, which was written by Chris Terrio (“Argo”).

Recently, Simmons told Entertainment Tonight that he had finished filming his part of the film.

“My part is done. They are filming that for basically most of 2016, so some of the superheroes are still at work in jolly old London, but I’m back home with my family,” Simmons said.

Simmons next stars in the Ryan Gosling-Emma Stone musical “La La Land,” which reteams the veteran actor with his “Whiplash” director Damien Chazelle. He also co-stars in “The Accountant” with Ben Affleck, “Bastards” with Ed Helms and “The Snowman” with Michael Fassbender.
