Simmons is getting in shape for his upcoming role as Commissioner Gordon in Justice League, and his trainer Aaron Williamson isn't shy about claiming bragging rights for how buff Simmons has gotten.

Instagram commenters are freaking out over Simmons' transformation, writing, "Now I got some motivation as I just turned 59 this year! Got some serious work ahead of me! I think I need to change gyms!"
