Gordon Levitt will be in The Dark Knight Rises after all


He’s long been rumored to be joining the cast of The Dark Knight Rises and now it appears to be true: Joseph Gordon-Levitt is in talks to play an unspecified role in the Bat-sequel.

“I’m not sure what role he’ll play, but I’m told that he will be in the movie when Nolan starts production this spring,” according to Deadline. He will segue to the film after wrapping Looper.

Gordon-Levitt joins his fellow Inception alum Tom Hardy(who’s been cast as Bane) in the Christopher Nolan threequel.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt (L) will join his Inception co-star Tom Hardy (R) in The Dark Knight Rises.

So let the speculation rage: Nolan has said that Riddler won’t be in the film (a role that fans have long thought JGL would be perfect for), so could he be playing a different villain? Perhaps a good guy? Someone in between? Sound off in the Comments below!

(Before anyone whines about there being too many villains inTDKR, bear in mind that Batman Begins had Ducard, “Ra’s Al Ghul,” Scarecrow, Wayne Enterprises CEO William Earle, Carmine Falcone, Joe Chill and Victor Zsasz, while The Dark Knight had Joker, Two-Face, Scarecrow, Sal Maroni, various hoods and crooked cops, Lau and that weasel who tried to blackmail Bruce Wayne.)

I didn’t know Victor Zsasz was in the first movie till now, and apparently, he was the guy who attempted to stab Rachel Dawes when she was going home from the subway.
