Christopher Nolan wrapped up his “Dark Knight Trilogy” with a glimpse of what might be in store for John Blake and the legend of The Batman after Bruce Wayne’s retirement. Now, Warner Bros. is reportedly looking to unwrap what will be for the future Caped Crusader by way of the studio’s proposed “Justice League” film. HitFix states in no uncertain terms that its sources say actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt will “absolutely” return as the new Batman for the long-awaited team up movie.
Despite the strong wording, we’ve seen things that “sources say” fail to come to fruition before. This should all be taken with a grain of salt for now, but there is no question this news will inspire extreme reactions from those for and against this potential casting move. We’ll be following this story closely as it develops.
