Joseph Gordon-Levitt Talks SIN CITY 2, Comments On Taking Over The BATMAN Film Series
Joseph Gordon-Levitt discusses why he decided to take a role in Robert Rodriquez's sequel Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, and also reiterates the two main criteria that would influence his taking a role, such as the next big screen Caped Crusader.
Speaking with Deadline while promoting his directorial debut Don Jon's Addiction at Sundance, Joseph Gordon-Levitt discusses what would influence his taking on a film role, reiterating the two main criteria: a director that inspires him, and a good script. After his roles in critically acclaimed films such as Lincoln, The Dark Knight Rises and Looper, he has been one of the most in-demand young actors in Hollywood as of late. He turned down an offer to star in Legendary's Godzilla a couple months back, and has been linked to both Star-Lord in Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy and Batman in Warner Bros.' Justice League. While he won't be sharing scenes with Godzilla or Rocket Raccoon, Gordon-Levitt will be appearing in Robert Rodriquez and Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, which he talks about here as well. "For me, it’s first and foremost about a filmmaker who inspires me. In the last year I have been extremely fortunate. I got to work with Rian Johnson and then Chris Nolan and then Steven Spielberg. The job I just took, Sin City 2, I did it because I just love Robert Rodriguez’s movies. And then after filmmakers, it’s the script. Sin City 2 is just a fun part to play. I have eclectic taste in movies I like to watch. This year, Django Unchained was one of my favorite movies, everyone is so good and I’m so happy for Leo because he’s a friend of mine; I know he’s hilarious and he showed that side of himself. I loved Life of Pi, and Beasts of the Southern Wild. Any of those filmmakers, Ang Lee, Quentin Tarantino or Benh Zeitlin, I’d love to be in one of their movies."
Gordon-Levitt also had this to say when asked if he would be interested in playing the next Caped Crusader after the end of The Dark Knight Rises, rehashing prior comments on the possibility. "It’s not up to me. It comes down to the same two criteria I just mentioned." Despite his reps reportedly saying otherwise, rumors of the actor donning the cowl for Justice League have been going around on the internet for a couple months now. Would you like to see him as the next Batman?
