TDKR: Joseph Gordon Levitt Comments On Robin Rumors, But Don't Expect A Straight Answer!

<i>TDKR</i>: Joseph Gordon Levitt Comments On Robin Rumors, But Don't Expect A Straight Answer!

While promoting his latest movie 50/50 Levitt responds to an outright question by MTV on which character he is really playing in TDKR. Robin? The Riddler? Think you will find out?..

Course you won't. But watch the video below and see if you can discern anything from Levitt's answers..



"You know I can't have this conversation, man," he laughed when asked point blank if he'd be playing Robin in "Dark Knight Rises" during a conversation with MTV News at the Toronto International Film Festival, where he was promoting his latest movie, "50/50." "I can't have this conversation."

"You know, we're working on a Batman movie," he said about the experience. "Batman is a very dear character that precedes the recent Chris Nolan trilogy. I think it's cool that people care a lot about it and are very interested in what we're doing."


What we do know, or at least what we have been told, is that Levitt is playing a Gotham City cop called John Blake. But many fans are convinced this is misdirection and that he is in fact playing a more established character from Batman mythology. Personally I really don't think he is, but it is a bit unusual that he didn't just come right out and put a stop to the rumors as would normally be the case. I guess Mr Nolan likes to keep everyone guessing.
