The headline says it all with this one, folks. We have no idea what character he’ll be playing, but Inception star Joseph Gordon-Levitt is set to reunite with director Christopher Nolan (and co-star Tom Hardy, for that matter) in The Dark Knight Rises.
Deadline brings the report, claiming that the 29-year-old will be on board when Nolan begins filming this May. Gordon-Levitt is currently filming Rian Johnson’s Looper – one of my most anticipated films in a long time – and should be freed up for filming by Nolan’s start date.
There were early rumors of JGL playing The Riddler in the final entry of Nolan’s Batman trilogy, but those came and went without confirmation. This news seems a bit more finalized, although, again, we’re not sure what role he’s playing. Tom Hardy and Anne Hathaway are co-starring as Bane and Selina Kyle (aka Catwoman) alongside Christian Bale, and it’s assumed the rest of the great supporting Bat-cast will return to this third installment as well. Expect more clarification on this story in the weeks to come.
