Excellent! This is really shaping up to honestly be the best addition to the franchise YET!
Just as we reported in February, Joseph Gordon-Levitt has officially signed on to appear in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises, and will be taking on the role he was previously speculated to have as Alberto Falcone AKA The Holiday Killer, who is the estranged son of Tom Wilkinson's Mafia head honcho Carmine Falcone from Batman Begins!
As we previously explained:
"He returns to Gotham to take over the underworld once fiercly ruled by his father before the arrival of Batman."
We cannot wait to see how he plays this one, and how Catwoman and Bane tie into it!
Despite confirmation from Warner Brothers, sources close to production are also revealing that indie actress Juno Temple, who appeared in Atonement and Kaboom, has been picked up in a supporting role as a "street-smart Gotham girl."
Awesome! The only criticism we can think to give is that we have to wait over a year to see it!
Ugh! It will be worth the wait, though! We can already tell!
What do U think?? Are U excited for The Dark Knight Rises??
