RUMOR: Joseph Gordon-Levitt Reportedly “Solidifying” Deal To Play ‘Batman’ In JUSTICE LEAGUE

Feeding speculation that ignited from the closing sequence of The Dark Knight Rises, new reputable sources claim that actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt will “absolutely” appear in WB's Justice League film.

Although Warner Bros. have yet to announce solid plans for a Justice League movie, countless rumors seemingly indicate that the flick is definitely in the works, low key. And now endorsing speculation that started with the closing sequence of director Christopher Nolan's epic Batman conclusion, The Dark Knight Rises, the folks from HitFix seem to know who'll take up Christian Bale's ‘Batman’ mantle in the DC superhero team-up movie. And if true, it's no big surprise.

According to their sources, The Dark Knight Rises' Robin ‘John Blake’ actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt will “absolutely” be starring in the Justice League movie as the new Dark Knight.

While this claim should be added to the pile of rumors that already exist, the site further claims that Warner Bros. are currently “solidifying” deals for Gordon-Levitt and another actor from the trilogy. If true, however, the Justice League film will definitely be in continuity with Nolan's trilogy. And Gordon-Levitt would be reprising his role from the The Dark Knight Rises, in which his character's true identity was revealed to be Robin. And that evidently means Justice League's Dark Knight won't be using the alias “Bruce Wayne.” What do you think?

It is also worth noting that Joseph Gordon-Levitt was asked last month whether there were plans of what's being reported now. While denying there was anything underway then, he did add, “If the script inspires me and if there's a filmmaker that I respect and connect to...I'd consider anything.”



Anyhow, with Gangster Squad scribe Will Beall reportedly penning the film's screenplay, Justice League is said to follow next year's Man of Steel, and is scheduled for release in 2015.

zachman2013 - 11/26/2012, 8:08 PM
As great as this would be. there's no way this is happening.
superotherside - 11/26/2012, 8:10 PM
No, just no. He was fine in TDKR to pass the role on to but he's no Batman. Sorry.
P862010 - 11/26/2012, 8:13 PM
henry cavill looks more mature and bad ass than JGL sorry we need bruce wayne not a substitute

DioFoRio - 11/26/2012, 8:14 PM
Bullshit. Doesn't have the presence to play Batman.
Spidey91 - 11/26/2012, 8:16 PM

Kayo - 11/26/2012, 8:18 PM
He's a talented actor but i don't see him as Batman
DioFoRio - 11/26/2012, 8:18 PM
Just have Cavill play Bruce Wayne a'la the Parent Trap...Shit have him Play all the Parts. Get Arm & Hammer to play Bruce . he looks the part.
DioFoRio - 11/26/2012, 8:18 PM
what Kansas said.
DioFoRio - 11/26/2012, 8:19 PM
If it's not Bruce Wayne behind the mask...kiss Batman goodbye for another 15 years.
Jaspion - 11/26/2012, 8:24 PM
Crap. Thank you Nolan. ¬¬
DioFoRio - 11/26/2012, 8:25 PM
Deception

Smh...........smh............smh............
typicalfanboy - 11/26/2012, 8:27 PM
yikes. bad idea. what happened to rebooting it? bruce wayne is batman, not some made up version of robin. i can see him as nightwing, but not batman, and not batman in justice league
D117 - 11/26/2012, 8:27 PM
One of my favorite actors, but he doesn't fit as Batman at all
MCUfan1 - 11/26/2012, 8:27 PM
I don't think he became robin/nightwing at the in of the dark knight rises i think he is batman beyond and i can buy this rumor if they say he's batman beyond.

RUBBISH!!!!!!!!!!

Updated Via Hitflix!!!!


"It is said that even though Mr.Levitt will be behind the cowl, he will not be going by the moniker of "Batman". The character of John Blake will be using his full legal birth name of Robin Nightwing, further expanding on the characters native american roots."
BlackCondor - 11/26/2012, 8:31 PM
He just needs to bulk up a lot like Chris Hemsworth and Christian Bale did
DCjohnny - 11/26/2012, 8:31 PM
i dont want john blake to be batman.... only bruce wayne can be batman... pls WB get some other actor to play batman...
WolvieCBM - 11/26/2012, 8:33 PM
Nope. Just no. Nolan's trilogy is done and it was a great ending. WB, move on, I beg you. Don't ruin it.
DioFoRio - 11/26/2012, 8:34 PM
JGL for Cyclops could be interesting.
mgeoff88 - 11/26/2012, 8:35 PM
There's no way that is happening.

John Blake can't be behind the mask, it has to be Bruce Wayne. DC/WB would never OK this.
DioFoRio - 11/26/2012, 8:38 PM
mgeoff88....I wouldn't put it past them. They see $ signs right now after the last Bat-run.
Knightrider - 11/26/2012, 8:39 PM
If he is playing Bruce Wayne, then fine, just will need to bulk up. However what a wasted opportunity to have John Blake Batman with Superman on film rather than the proper version.

I'd say go with full rebooted Batman if honestT
GoILL - 11/26/2012, 8:39 PM
I don't see this happening, too many people know Bruce Wayne to be Batman. I think if they do use JGL just have him play Bruce in the reboot.
Jaspion - 11/26/2012, 8:40 PM
Not only does he not fit the part but also if they continue the John Blake bullshit it would be the most stupid thing.. He can't be Batman, he's never had any [frick]ing training.

I know "Batman can be anyone" but not everyone can be Batman.
Tainted87 - 11/26/2012, 8:46 PM
The only Justice League character I can imagine him playing is Barry, except he'd have to dye his hair, and that could look horrible.
continuezero - 11/26/2012, 8:49 PM
You wanna launch Justice League sans Bruce Wayne? Nothing against JGL, I'd watch a Robin/Nightwing spinoff movie. But to launch JL without Bruce is ridiculous.
ATrueHero1987 - 11/26/2012, 8:51 PM
Lmao!! Yea, I call BS on this.

Funsize - 11/26/2012, 8:55 PM
Maybe Nightwing. Oh wait Batman?? Idk about that. It could happen though so I'm gonna brace myself.
IDKwhatToChoose - 11/26/2012, 8:56 PM
That would be the MOST terrible thing to do to a new franchise. No Bruce Wayne in the JLA... Saying that, unfortunately this will probably true and we can all act like we are excited for a JLA movie but inside we will all know its JLA without Batman
CrimsonDynamo - 11/26/2012, 8:57 PM
hahaha, if I were Bruce Wayne I would have left Blake a Jughead crown and been done with it.
CptCrunchy - 11/26/2012, 8:58 PM
Yeah, because Bruce Wayne not being behind the mask has NEVER happened before. Honestly, why should it matter whether or not it's Bruce Wayne or John Blake who dons the mask? How pretentious do you have to be to let that actually bring down the quality of a movie for you? Guess what? I wasn't a fan of Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man, but that didn't stop me from enjoying all three (Yes, THREE you snobs) of the movies.
Akercocke - 11/26/2012, 8:59 PM
ridiculous, it won't happen.
Jaspion - 11/26/2012, 8:59 PM
lol @DangerStranger you and me both
Nivekian - 11/26/2012, 9:00 PM
Um, no. It was a good way to tie up Nolans films, but lets keep Nolans quirks all in one place.
