Christopher Nolan Believes In Joseph Gordon-Levitt

JGL.pngTotal Film reports that director Christopher Nolan has tapped the always-riveting Joseph Gordon-Levitt to star in his third and final Batman film, “The Dark Knight Rises.” As this is the second time the pair have worked together following last summer’s mind-trip-blockbuster “Inception,” Nolan obviously believes in the young star’s acting chops. The only question that remains is who will Gordon-Levitt be playing?
Two Batman villains have already been announced: Catwoman (played by Anne Hathaway) and the chemically-enhanced muscleman Bane (played by Tom Hardy, who also graced the frames of “Inception”). Could Gordon-Levitt be the last part of a bad guy triumvirate? Might we hopefully suggest The Riddler?
Regardless, Nolan has proven he has a knack for casting the right actors to inhabit culturally iconic roles; it’s hard to imagine anyone else but Heath Ledger as The Joker. So whomever Gordon-Levitt will be, we’re confident it will be spectacular. Hopefully Nolan and co. will let us in on the secret sooner rather than later.

    Can’t imagine anyone but Heath Ledger as the Joker? I believe that Jack Nicholson is still around. “Have you ever danced with the Devil in the pale moonlight?”

    You can’t imagine anyone but Heath Ledger as the Joker? I believe Jack Nicholson played that role more times than Ledger did.

    Can you tell me why there has to be more than one villian in the next Batman movie?
    This was one of the problems with the first set of Batman movies. It is a stupid idea.
    There was only one in the last time and it was great. So stop over loading it with multi villians.

    First of all, Nicholson was a great joker…. for the late 80s. He would be a terrible choice for Nolan’s Batman films – over-the-top, super cheese, hard to believe. Each generation gets their own Batman and Joker, and Nicholson was last generation’s Joker. Within that context, it is hard to imagine anyone other than Ledger playing the Joker.
    As to overloading a film with villains, I completely agree. It would be terrible if the 3rd Batman film ended up like Spider-Man 3 – overstuffed and lifeless. However, I have enough faith in Nolan to trust that even if there were 3 villains the film wouldn’t succumb to the same issues that other superhero flicks have fallen prey to.
    And as interesting as Catwoman and Bane are, they pale in comparison to the awesomeness that would be Gordon-Levitt as the Riddler.

    You know oldman054 there was two villians in both batman begins and the dark knight. Batman begins had scarecrow and raz agul. The dark knight had joker and two face. Even though two face appeared later Nolan could very well do it with this film later in the movie. I believe in Nolans directing ability I doubt it will be anything like the last set of batman movies.

    Just as long as we never see the bat nipples again. The horror, oh the horror… curses on you Joel Schumacher!
