Aaron Williamson, a former marine-turned-fitness guru, is no stranger to coaching some of the world’s biggest movie stars. In the past, his clientele has included the likes of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, though a more recent training session has caused quite the stir in the DC fanbase.
That’s because it features Whiplash star J.K. Simmons, who will soon don the gun and badge as Commissioner Gordon for Zack Snyder’s two-part Justice League movie. With the opening installment due to land late next year, a new image posted to Williamson’s Instagram page has seemingly revealed the intense training Simmons is undergoing in preparation for the part.

Zack Snyder’s two-part juggernaut is pegged to arrive across two mainline installments: Justice League: Part One on November 17, 2017 and Part Two on June 14, 2019. Across those two chapters, Snyder and Co. will be making room for Willem Dafoe’s purported Atlantean, along with The Joker (possibly) and Lex Luthor (definitely).
