Another “Spider-Man” alum is jumping over to the DC universe.
J.K. Simmons, who played Jonah Jameson in the “Spider-Man” franchise, also recently joined the cast as Commissioner Gordon.
Filming on “Justice League,” which opens Nov. 17, 2017, is underway, with Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot on board to reprise their roles of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, respectively. Ezra Miller is also set to play the Flash with Jason Momoa playing Aquaman.
Zack Snyder is in the director’s chair.
Plot details are still unknown at this time and Dafoe’s role is being kept under wraps as well.
Chris Terrio wrote the screenplay, while Charles Roven, Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder are producing.
Dafoe’s recent credits include “The Fault in Our Stars” and “John Wick.” He just recently wrapped production on “The Great Wall,” co-starring Matt Damon. He also has “A Headhunter’s Calling” set to open this year, which also stars Gerard Butler and Alison Brie.
