Seemingly ending weeks of speculation, Variety have caught wind that Joseph Gordon-Levitt has signed up to join Christopher Nolan’s ‘The Dark Knight Rises,’ reuniting the young actor with his ‘Inception’ director. There’s still no word on what role he’ll play at this moment in time, it has been long rumoured that he’ll portray The Riddler, however Nolan has previously stated that The Riddler will not feature in the film. I’m sure we’ll be getting a press release regarding the matter in the coming weeks from Warner Bros.

In addition to Gordon-Levitt, English actress Juno Temple is reportedly being eyed for a supporting role as a “street-smart Gotham girl.” Warner Bros and reps for both thesps declined to comment. ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ has a release date of June 20th 2012 and stars Christian Bale, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Anne Hathaway and Tom Hardy. My excitement meter is officially set to HIGH for this flick!
