Joseph Gordon-Levitt confirmed for Nolan’s “Dark Knight Rises”

By Sean O’Connell We now know for sure that Joseph Gordon-Levitt will join his “Inception” director Christopher Nolan on the set of the Batman sequel, “The Dark Knight Rises.”

Who he’ll be playing is another matter, altogether.

Back when Gordon-Levitt was caught up in the Batman rumor mill, fans speculated that he’d play The Riddler in Nolan’s third and reportedly final Batman film. But we now know, through the director, that the villains in “Rises” will be Catwoman (played by Anne Hathaway) and Bane (played by Tom Hardy).

Perhaps JGL will play an ally of Christian Bale’s Bruce Wayne in his fight to clean Gotham’s streets? We don’t know, and the Variety story confirming Gordon-Levitt’s participation is mum.

But the story adds that “Cracks” star Juno Temple is up for a small role as a street-smart Gotham chick in the sequel. This cast is bursting at the seams, when you make room for regulars like Michael Caine, Gary Oldman and Morgan Freeman.

“The Dark Knight Rises” will be in theaters on July 20, 2012.
