Okay, so we already pretty much knew they'd be in the movie, but we're happy to get 100% confirmation AND to learn what roles they'll be playing!
Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Marion Cotillard have been officially confirmed for The Dark Knight Rises…and most people will probs be surprised to hear their roles.
JGL will star as Gotham City cop John Blake, who's under a "special assignment" by Commissioner Gordon.
As for Cotillard, she'll play Wayne Enterprise board member Miranda Tate, who wants to help
Batman Bruce Wayne continue "his father's philantropic endeavors" for Gotham City.
Here's what director Christopher Nolan had to say about these role choices in a statement:
"When you collaborate with people as talented as Marion and Joe, it comes as no surprise that you would want to repeat the experience. I immediately thought of them for the roles of Miranda and Blake, and I am looking forward to working with both of them again."
We can certainly appreciate that, and after their fantastic performances in Inception, we're def optimistic that we'll be impressed once again!
What do U think about JGL and Marion Cotillard's roles? Are they right for those parts?
