 Joseph Gordon-Levitt to Take On 'Batman' Role in Upcoming JUSTICE LEAGUE

Examiner.com has confirmed that Joseph Gordon-Levitt will take on the role of 'Batman' in the upcoming film JUSTICE LEAGUE. Drew McWeeny of HitFix broke the news that the actor will "absolutely" play the caped crusader in the movie.

Warner Bros will produce the picture which will feature a team of DC Comics superheroes including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and Aquaman. The studio hopes to match the success of this year's blockbuster hit 'The Avengers', also based on comic book heroes.

McWeeny also hinted that another character from the "Dark Knight" franchise is in discussions to make an appearance in the film. Possibilities include Gary Oldman in his role as James Gordon, or Michael Caine, as Batman's trusTed Butler Alfred. 

Gordon-Levitt is best known for his roles in the films (500) Days of Summer, Inception, 50/50, The Dark Knight Rises, and Looper, and for playing Tommy Solomon in the television sitcom 3rd Rock from the Sun. The actor made his film debut in Beethoven and has also starred in 10 Things I Hate About You, Manic, Mysterious Skin, Brick, The Lookout, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, and Premium Rush, and played a supporting role in Steven Spielberg's Lincoln. He founded the online Production Company hitRECord, in 2004.
