Zack Snyder has revealed the first image of J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon in the upcoming DC superhero saga, Justice League, and the guy looks pretty good in black and white.

Snyder shared the set photo on Twitter for Batman Day, which also gives us a glance at the new Batfleck signal. It definitely harkens back to the look and feel of the 1989 Batman film, with Gordon standing heroically against a backdrop of fog-lined rooftops.
Could this mean the film will be less city-wide explosion fests and more classic gothic Gotham? Only time (and Snyder) will tell.
Justice League looks to take place primarily in Gotham City, where Batman and Wonder Woman are putting together a team of heroes to fight the evil Steppenwolf. We’ll see the arrival of Aquaman, Cyborg, and The Flash, with Superman coming back from the non-dead to join the team.
Justice League is currently being filmed and is set to come out late-2017.
