Joseph Gordon-Levitt Set for ‘The Dark Knight Rises’


Just last night, I was watching “The Dark Knight” and I started thinking about Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The actor has been rumored to be in “The Dark Knight Rises” for some time and there has been plenty of speculation as to which character he might play.

The reason I thought of him, though, was because of Anthony Michael Hall. While “The Dark Knight” was in development, Hall was announced for the movie and rumors ran rampant about which role he would play. In the end, none of the juicy gossip proved true — he simply played a newscaster (it was a decent part, to be sure, but it was no Riddler).

Today, Gordon-Levitt locked up a role in “The Dark Knight Rises.” The actor will re-team with “Inception” director Christopher Nolan in a role yet to be specified. The Riddle (as usual) and Deadshot are included in the choices, but guessing what Nolan will do is a fool’s errand.

Let’s do it anyway! Who do you think Gordon-Levitt will play? List your choice to the right and we’ll see who is correct by July 20, 2012, when Batman next hits the theater.

    Finally! I really hope that he will play Deadshot or The Riddler. I know that he would make great portrayals of both those characters 🙂
