JGL still looks young...he could be Robin.

Why would he want to be? I'm sure that by now he's quite sick of people still thinking of him as a kid just because they remember him from an old sitcom.

Moreover, why would we want him to be? It was ridiculous enough seeing the 25-year-old Chris O'Donnell play the "Boy" Wonder in Batman Forever (and then again two years later). Gordon-Levitt is only 7 years younger than Bale. Hell, he's three years older than the guy who was just cast as Superman.
It was a joke Christopher.

Actually warming up to the idea of JGL as The Riddler.

Does Robin really have to be a Boy Wonder?

Still think it would make more sense for him to be Nightwing than Robin, but only in a cameo capacity, not to overshadow Batman or Catwoman.

JGL looks enough like Heath Ledger to have been a credible re-cast but I'm pretty sure that's not going to happen.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt in talks to join the cast!

http://www.deadline.com/2011/02/jose...-knight-rises/
I love him! Been watching him since he played DJ's nervous friend George on Roseanne when he was about 8 years old, all the way through The Lookout (a fantastic performance), 500 Days of Summer and Inception. Thought on his possible role: virulently anti-Batman police detective Max Cort (from Prey). Cort is eventually manipulated by Hugo Strange into becoming a crazed vigilante). It'd be interesting to see Gordon-Levitt take on a hefty action role.

JGL was great in Brick.

Re: Third Nolan Batman film title announced!

Why can't people take Christopher Nolan's word as fact? He's already unequivocally stated that we will not be seeing (again or for the first time) the following characters:
Robin (too young for his timeline and too at-odds with the tone he's set)
The Penguin (too 'tricky' to do realistically)
The Riddler (not a part of TDKR, his final Bat-film)
The Joker (too disrespectful to Heath's memory to cast a new actor in the role and bring the character back)
Mr. Freeze (too unrealistic)

I don't know and couldn't speculate about what type of role JGL might be up for, but it's not going to be any of the above.

Since we're well beyond a title announcement, I changed the thread title to something more pertinent.

Not necessarily. Joe and Heath were very good friends in real life, and you'd have to be blind not to see the uncanny resemblance between them. Plus, Joe's acting chops are unquestionable.

This is Nolan's final Bat film. It would be glaring for the Joker not to be present somehow. What better tribute to Heath than for a trusted friend to carry his baton?

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I think it would be a mistake to include the Joker. Perhaps JGL will play Hugo Strange.

Not necessarily.
Those are Nolan's own words on the subject.

I don't really see any need to revisit the Joker, anyway. His first appearance took his schtick about as far as it can go.

Thanks! Great Avatar.

I'm hoping we will see Hugo Strange still.

I didn't just pull the statement "He's already unequivocally stated that we will not be seeing (again or for the first time) the following characters" out of my butt, dude, but if you want 100% proof of Nolan saying that he won't be bringing back The Joker, here you go:
Nolan won't replace Ledger as Joker in 'Batman 3'

'Dark Knight Rises' won't include Joker; will be Nolan's last Batman film
