Joseph Gordon Levitt In 'Batman'? Talks To Play 'Dark Knight Rises' Villain

Posted: Updated:

Joseph Gordon Levitt was Christopher Nolan's good guy in 'Inception' -- now, he might be turning bad.

The '500 Days of Summer' star is in talks to play an unnamed villain in the upcoming Batman sequel, 'The Dark Knight Rises,' Deadline.com reports. If he does join the cast, he'll be teaming up with another 'Inception' star-turned-villain, Tom Hardy, who is set to play Bane in the third caped crusader film from Nolan.

Anne Hathaway has already been cast as the future Catwoman, while Christian Bale, fresh off an awards show sweeping performance in 'The Fighter,' is set to reprise his role as Batman for the third time. Whether he plays Bruce Wayne beyond that is an open question -- even to Bale himself. In fact, if Levitt Gordon is cast, it'll be a rematch of sorts between two nominees for Best Supporting Actor at this year's Golden Globes.
