Joseph Gordon-Levitts reps deny Justice League role

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been linked to the Batman role in Warner Bros’ upcoming Justice League movie, but that particular rumour has been shot down by his representatives.

Following the ending of The Dark Knight Rises , JGL has faced endless questions about continuing the Dark Knight franchise as Batman, although he has never committed to anything. chased the rumour up, and report that they "checked in with Gordon-Levitt’s reps who have refuted the rumour entirely.”

It always seemed an improbable fit, with Nolan’s characters unlikely to sit comfortably next to the likes of Green Lantern and Superman.

As yet, there has been no official casting rumours for Justice League yet. Many directors and actors have been linked to the project, but as it’s not expected to land until 2015, it’s unlikely we’ll get any official news on this until next year at the earliest.

The next Warner Bros/DC Comics film that we'll see is Man Of Steel , which opens in the UK on 14 June 2013.
