“Justice League” is still filming in England, but JK Simmons has already wrapped his role as Gotham City’s Commissioner Gordon.

“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 told ET.

Simmons also revealed that most of his scenes involved interacting with Batman, who will again be played Ben Affleck, but that Gordon isn’t the main focus of the movie.

“In this first installment of the ‘Justice League,’ Commissioner Gordon is not a particularly sizable part,” he said. “We just kind of introduce him and see a little bit of his interactions with Batman and with most of the Justice League.”

Simmons, who recently co-starred in “The Meddler” with Susan Sarandon, said that he would love to see the veteran actress get a role in a superhero movie.

“I’m sure Susan would make an excellent supervillain, although I don’t know the Marvel universe to know well enough what supervillain she could be,” he said. “Although, you know what, it’s a new millennium. She could play some supervillain that Stan Lee invented as a male. She’s Susan Sarandon. She can do whatever she wants.”

“Justice League” will hit theaters on Nov. 17, 2017.
