We Handicap Some Joseph Gordon-Levitt “Dark Knight Rises” Rumors

In case you hadn’t heard, there’s a new Batman movie coming out in a few months. It’s got some famous people in it.

Among those famous people is Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who plays a character named John Blake in the movie. But of course, he can’t actually be some character that Nolan made up just for the movie! Not with that tantalizingly vague character description! He has to be somebody else!

This being the Internet, there are lots of guesses: here are a few of our favorites.


Our Odds: Infinitesimal

Let’s see here: Nolan has said he’ll never use Robin. Bale has said that if Robin shows up, he’s done. Joseph Gordon-Levitt is in his thirties. Yeah, we can rule this one out.


Our Odds: 10,000 to 1

This seems to be mostly based on Azrael showing up in “Arkham City”, because, you know, Rocksteady and Christopher Nolan work so closely together on this stuff. Admittedly, secret societies are going to play a fairly heavy role in this movie: at the very least, the League of Assassins is back. Still, we’re not seeing how Azrael would fit into the franchise’s gritty and realistic vibe.
