Joseph Gordon-Levitt Finally Shows up on the Dark Knight Rises Set

Check out your first look at Joseph Gordon-Levitt filming a snowy scene (in a suffocatingly hot Pittsburgh street) in Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises”. It’s anybody’s guess what’s going on here, what the Tumbler is doing cruising the street, and what Gordon-Levitt’s character is doing with a can of gasoline. He certainly looks casual and “innocent” enough.

In the film, Gordon-Levitt will be playing John Blake, a Gotham City beat cop assigned to special duty under the command of Commissioner Gordon. Speculation has Gordon-Levitt playing the Riddler, but I don’t know, Nolan seems like he would be above such ridiculous characters. Then again, he did make The Joker fierce, so maybe Nolan could make the Riddler respectable, too.

We’ll find out who John Blake really is (or isn’t) when “The Dark Knight Rises” arrives July 20, 2012.
