Can you guess who??

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is set to appear in the upcoming movie The Dark Knight Rises, but he will not be playing The Joker, Robin, or Night Wing, as previously speculated.

He'll actually be playing a new villain who is connected to the first film Batman Begins. Sources say:

"Well he has signed on to the film in a villainous role previously undisclosed until now. Levitt will be portraying Alberto Falcone aka the Holiday Killer.

He is the estranged son of former mob boss Carmine Falcone (portrayed by Tom Wilkinson in Batman Begins) who returns to Gotham to take over the underworld once fiercly ruled by his father before the arrival of Batman."

Inneresting!

We like it!

Batman fans, what do U think??

    THIS IS FANTASTIC ! That character is from the Batman miniseries "The Long Halloween" by Geoff Loeb and Tim Sale. Catwoman is ALL over this. Didn't mean to geek out, but…..OoooooWEEEEEEE !

    LOVE IT! I've always wanted someone like this (particularly holiday coz of the falcone story) but it's still unexpected. quaking with excitement. just wish catwoman wasn't in it

    I think you need to learn how to spell "interesting" and not "inneresting." Use spellcheck, boy!

    I approve of this! I love him… and I love seeing actors portray a villain.

    KnightFall, When In Rome, Long Halloween, Year One, Hush and Heart of Hush are the foreground.

    …Eerrr, I think you'll find he isn't! This rumour was shot down days ago as nothing more than B.S!! It's not even been confirmed that Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been cast in 'The Dark Knight Rises.'…

    Never imagine he would get so far. Looking forward to Batman.

    He should have played Robin, or someone else that goes under Bruce Wayne's wing.. but whateverrr. lol

    Nice to have a 'normal' villain, though I know Catwoman is slated to appear, too; but if he'd been The Riddler, or if they'd brought back Penguin it's only a step or two away from doing to this franchise what WB did to the first one and turning into to a comedy.

    HE WON`T play Alberto Falcone.
    Jett from BOF already confirmed it!

    He is gonna kill it! I can totally see him getting bad ass!!

    Stop writing "inneresting" you fat freak. God, you could atleast TRY to get it write. Doing it on purpose just makes you look like an ass.
