EW, quoting unnamed “inside sources”, says that’s very much the case, though they conveniently refrain from saying who Joseph Gordon-Levitt will be playing in Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rise”. Mind you, they don’t even say that they know who he’ll be playing, but they are calling the previous reports “incorrect”. Odd, that. So do they know or don’t they, or are they being hoodwinked?
In case you missed it, a previous report from Variety had Gordon-Levitt officially signed on to co-star in “The Dark Knight Rises” alongside his “Inception” co-star Tom Hardy (playing Bane), and that Gordon-Levitt’s character is that of Alberto Falcone, son of Carmine Falcone, played by Tom Wilkinson in “Batman Begins”.
I guess we’ll know for sure when Warner releases their press release sometime in the future.
