Joseph Gordon-Levitt is joining the cast of The Dark Knight Rises, Deadline Hollywood said Wednesday.
Gordon-Levitt, who is featured in this year’s Vanity Fair Annual Hollywood Issue, is in talks to reunite with his Inception director Christopher Nolan in the follow-up to 2008′s The Dark Knight, the trade paper claims. The star’ll move from shooting Rian Johnson’s time travel movie Looper straight to the set of the Batman sequel this spring. Tattles are staying tight-lipped on the details about which character Joseph will play, but the star has been frequently linked to the role of The Riddler.
The Dark Knight Rises opens in July 2012. Christian Bale will reprise his role as Bruce Wayne in The Dark Knight Rises, while Anne Hathaway has been cast as Catwoman. Tom Hardy’s on board as Bane The Villain. The newcomers will join returning cast members Michael Caine and Gary Oldman.
