Jeffrey Wright will play Commissioner Gordon in “The Batman,” director Matt Reeves announced Wednesday.Late in the afternoon, Reeves tweeted a gif of Wright saying “Tweet something,” along with the text “Tweet! Gordon,” and a bat emoji.Created in 1939 by Bill Finger and Bob Kane, Jim Gordon is commissioner of Gotham City’s police department, most often portrayed as a veteran officer who formed an unofficial partnership with Batman first to combat systemic corruption inside GPD and later to deal with the supervillains plaguing the city. He’s also the father of Barbara Gordon, who secretly fights crime alongside the caped crusader as Batgirl. Gordon’s backstory is further elaborated on in Frank Miller’s “Batman: Year One,” where he’s depicted as a disgraced Chicago cop who finds personal and career redemption after moving to Gotham City just as Batman begins his caped crusade.Also Read: 'The Batman': Paul Dano to Play The RiddlerWright will be the sixth live-action actor to portray Gordon.
