Joseph Gordon-Levitt NOT playing Batman

The other day, we heard the rumor that Joseph Gordon-Levitt might play Batman in Warner Bros. Justice League film. It’s a rumor that hopeful fanboys have latched onto since the end of The Dark Knight Rises. However, Hollywood.com has spoken to Gordon-Levitt’s reps who “refuted the rumor entirely.”

This could of course be a negotiation tactic, since the buzz this is generating is great for their client. Warner Bros. isn’t going to let the Batman franchise stay dormant, they haven’t gone longer than four years without a Batman movie since 2005, and they’ll want to start setting up the next Batman movies as soon as possible. Justice League may be the character’s true launching point (with possibly a cameo in Man of Steel), but presumably Warner Bros. wants their new Batman franchise to start hitting theaters in 2016. And that’s certainly possible as we’ve seen The Avengers this year and we’ll see Iron Man again next year in Iron Man 3.
