Joseph Gordon-Levitt Closes Deal For The Dark Knight Rises


Jospeh Gordon-Levitt

Variety is reporting that not only has Joseph Gordon-Levitt closed a deal to take a role in the third Batman film, reuniting him with Inception director Christopher Nolan.

It seems that also Juno Temple is being considered for a supporting role as a “street-smart Gotham girl,” though no deal has yet been closed.

Gordon-Levitt is rumored to be playing a member of the League Shadows and it seems that Variety also thinks that.

As for Temple, her part is likely not one featured in the comics, and given how crowded the film already is with female villains– Anne Hathaway and Marion Cotillard are both on board– there’s probably not room for another one.

I’ll anxiously wait for an official confirmation from Nolan’s people, since that might also come with details on who Gordon-Levitt will play!

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Closes Deal For The Dark Knight Rises, Juno Temple Also Up For Role

One bit of The Dark Knight Rises news you were expecting, and another bit you weren’t. Variety is reporting that not only has Joseph Gordon-Levitt closed a deal to take a role in the third Batman film, reuniting him with Inception director Christopher Nolan, but that Juno Temple is being considered for a supporting role as a “street-smart Gotham girl,” though no deal has yet been closed.

Gordon-Levitt has been rumored for a role in the film for months now, with the latest speculation that he’d play a member of the League Shadows. Variety floats the likelihood of that role as well, though they also seem to have no idea who he’ll actually play. As for Temple, her part is likely not one featured in the comics, though given how crowded the film already is with female villains– Anne Hathaway and Marion Cotillard are both on board– there’s probably not room for another one anyway. Temple is far less well-known, particularly to Nolan fans, than Gordon-Levitt, though you’ve probably caught her in supporting roles in Atonement, Year One, Greenberg or Gregg Araki’s Kaboom.

We’ll be anxiously awaiting official confirmation from Nolan’s people, since that might also come with details on who Gordon-Levitt will play. In the meantime share your own speculation in the comments.

  • Gordin-Levitt is a truly great and very unappreciated actor. Year One was pretty terrible, and Temple wasn’t much better so I’m not that excited about that.

    Also, since when was Marion Cotillard confirmed, let alone as a villain? I thought she was just a rumor…

  • No one survived Year One. Temple co-stars in Cracks, which premiered to favorable reviews at SXSW. CB has a review of it and her somewhere.
  • Had to look her up..

    Black Canary? Nah, I really don’t think so.

    Ooh, ooh! Just a shot in the dark… knight…. but maybe she’ll be playing a somewhat revisionist version of Stephanie Brown? Perhaps this is as close to Robin as we’ll ever get in the Nolanverse?
  • Or, on the bit less likely side, if Nolan decides to go with the Year One interpretation of Catwoman maybe Temple’s Holly Robinson?
