Variety is reporting that Joesph Gordon-Levitt is locked in to star in The Dark Knight Rises. While they do not know who he will play for sure, the assumption is that he will be a villain.
"Speculation has run rampant regarding what character Gordon-Levitt will play, though the part is being kept under wraps. Blogs have pegged the part as The Riddler or, more likely, Deadshot, a member of the villainous League of Shadows, but Nolan has elected to keep fans in the dark … for now"
Variety is also reporting that Juno Temple is being sought for a supporting role in the film. Temple is known for a lot of indie roles, but is said to be a great actress.
"Additionally, indie sensation Juno Temple is being eyed for a supporting role as a street-smart Gotham girl. Warner Bros. and reps for both thesps declined to comment."
If Gordon-Levitt is set to be in The Dark Knight Rises, we may be hearing a casting announcement soon since there have been numerous casting announcements for the new Superman film from Warner Bros.
