Joseph Gordon-Levitt looks set to join Anne Hathaway and Tom Hardy in The Dark Knight Rises

Christopher Nolan now has Christian Bale as Batman, Anne Hathaway as Catwoman and Tom Hardy as Bane in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. As if that wasn’t enough, it’s being reported today that fan favorite Joseph Gordon-Levitt is set to join the already impressive cast of THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. Given how fast Warner Brothers announced Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman, I’m surprised they didn’t preempt the Gordon-Levitt news with another announcement, because it’s hard to keep secrets in Hollywood.
Of course, since this isn’t an official announcement, we don’t know who he’ll be playing so that means we can all speculate about which character he could possibly portray in the film. With the lead villain presumably set, we only have sub-villains (ala Scarecrow in Begins) and maybe, just maybe…Robin. I know, I know, Nolan has said he wouldn’t introduce Robin in his Batman universe, but Gordon-Levitt just looks like the kind of actor that could pull it off. We will, of course, update you as more news breaks.
