Joseph Gordon-Levitt has joined the race for the role of the box office’s next Riddler after being tipped by Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan to appear in the forthcoming blockbuster, Batman 3.
The actor, who worked with Nolan on the set of the dramatic-thriller Inception, is rumored to be the first choice for the part.
“Chris really dug Joseph [as an actor],” a movie mole tells Hollywood Life. “There was a joke at first between them that Joseph wanted to read for Batman 3 and things heated up as filming continued. It’s not 100% confirmed that he’s getting [the role of The Riddler] but there’s certainly talk about it. Joseph is definitely on the shortlist.”
