Gordon-Levitt Confirmed; Temple Rumored (UPDATED)

This isn’t particularly news, seeing as I don’t think anyone has ever had any doubt that he’d end up in the film, but Variety reports that Joseph Gordon-Levitt has officially joined the cast of Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. Still no word on what character he will be taking on, but rumors have circulated for everyone from the Riddler (not gonna happen) to son-of-a-mobster-man Alberto Falcone, and even sidekick extraordinaire Dick Grayson/Robin (my personal favorite).

The REAL news here though is the possibility of Juno Temple joining the cast as “a street-smart Gotham girl.” Not sure about you, but to me that screams Holly, to go with Anne Hathaway’s Selena Kyle. I’m likin’ this…



UPDATE: Okay, looks like my decision to start trying to post news items on the site has run up against the fluid nature of “facts” on the ol’ intardwebs. Now Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Gordon-Levitt will NOT be playing Falcone. Which means I’m back to praying we’ll get to see him as Dick Grayson.
