Showing the world again that some people actually know what the Christ to do with comic book franchises, it was reported today that Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been signed on to take part in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. No word yet on who he will be playing (or if French Stewart will be making an appearance), but I hardly think it matters. With the announcement of Hathaway and Hardy recently, this movie already looks to be killer, and we haven’t even seen a trailer.
“Deadline has confirmed something that has been suspected for some time – Joseph Gordon-Levitt is in talks to reunite with his Inception director Christopher Nolan in The Dark Knight Rises. No one knows what role he will play, but rumor sites have been suspecting that Hugo Strange is part of the threequel story. Before there was even a screenplay, the rumor-mill pegged Levitt as The Riddler… but that seems too obvious a choice for Nolan. Other early rumors had JGL replacing the departed Heath Ledger as The Joker, but Nolan has gone on record saying that The Joker would not be recast and or appear in the new film. Also, with Bane and Selina Kyle (aka Catwoman) already announced, it seems unlikely that the film would involve a third villain.”
From Angels In the Outfeild to some of the biggest blockbusters of all time, it couldn’t have happened to a cooler, nicer dude. See, I’m not ALWAYS an asshole. Just to stupid people. Like you.
