Washington D.C. [U.S.A], Oct. 3 (ANI): Oscar-winning actor JK Simmons, who will be next seen in November's 'Justice League', feels really elated to work with superstar Ben Affleck in DC Extended Universe.

According to Contactmusic.com, Simmons feel really excited to work with fellow actor Affleck and is really looking forward to work in future movies in DCEU.

And I worked with Ben a couple of years ago on The Accountant and I met him years before that. So yes, I'm excited to work with him and hope to work with him on the other side of the camera at some point, as well."

Adding, "He's obviously a talented filmmaker in addition to being the movie star that he is and the good actor that he is, which I think will continue to develop as we see Batman and Commissioner Gordon not be spring chickens and we get into some interesting stories about these weathered kinds of guys."

Simmons also indicated that while he is hopeful there will be more 'Justice League' films in the future, Commissioner Gordon's role in the upcoming Justice League is just the briefest of introductions to the character.

"Commissioner Gordon, my incarnation of Commissioner Gordon, in the first Justice League movie of what we hope will be a handful is a kind of don't blink or you'll miss it introduction of the character. I didn't spend all that much time. We shot it here in London, which was great, it's always fun to be here, but I still haven't seen the finished thing put together," noted Simmons.
