Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been the subject of many casting rumors regarding Batman ever since the last reel of the Dark Knight Rises showed that his character, John Robin Blake, could become Bruce Wayne’s successor. The latest rumor is that he will be appearing as Batman in a cameo during Man of Steel. The actor recently addressed the rumor during an interview with MTV:
“I hadn’t heard that one,” he laughs. “It just goes to show how much you can believe rumours… I don’t think you should believe in any of them. If there’s something I’m going to be in, I’m going to tell you about it.”
One thing he did confirm is his role in Robert Rodriguez’s upcoming adaptation of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, where he is said to be playing a hardened gambler with a grudge against a sworn enemy.
“Sin City 2 is going to be fun,” agrees Gordon-Levitt. “[I’m playing] a quintessential Rodriguez badass. It’s going to be fun as hell.”
