Joseph Gordon-Levitt joins Dark Knight Rises
|NEWS - MOVIE NEWS|
Any relation to Commissioner Gordon (-Levitt)?
Variety reports that Joseph Gordon-Levitt has accepted a role in the upcoming Batman film The Dark Knight Rises, although there is no word yet as to which role he may play. Gordon-Levitt recently worked with Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan in the award-winning film Inception.
Speculation on Gordon-Levitt's possible role (along with every other aspect of The Dark Knight Rises) has been widespread and heated. Some hope that he will play the Riddler, perhaps (though Christopher Nolan has ruled out the character), or Deadshot. Others are pushing for a continuation of the Gotham crime-family Falcone storyline that was touched upon in Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, with Gordon-Levitt possibly cast as Alberto Falcone, the son of Tom Wilkinson's Carmine Falcone. Prevailing opinion is that Gordon-Levitt is coming aboard as a villain; although some have stated that he has the right look for a possible Robin. This being said, many reports have stated that both director Christopher Nolan and star Christian Bale are against the inclusion of Robin in the series. Gordon-Levitt will be joining another Inception star, Tom Hardy, who has been cast as a villain in The Dark Knight Rises as well.
And as soon as one actor is confirmed, another enters the rumor mill: actress Juno Temple (Greenberg) is in talks to join the cast as a 'street-smart Gotham girl', according to FusedFilm. Also rumored, but unconfirmed, is Marion Cotillard (Inception again!) who may be cast as Talia al Ghul, daughter of Ra's al Ghul from Batman Begins.
