Joseph Gordon-Levitt Slightly Cagey About Being In Another Batman Movie

There are a lot of surprises in store for those who haven’t watched Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. Looking back at it all, Nolan has created a trilogy rich with mythology and wonder, and to finally see it come to an end is a bit sad. Now with the film completed and released, the cast are finally weighing in on what The Dark Knight Rises meant to them.
In an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, Rises star Joseph Gordon-Levitt talked about what it was like to work with Nolan for a second time and to be a part of the final chapter of The Dark Knight Trilogy. Beware there will be spoilers below, so if you haven’t seen The Dark Knight Rises yet, turn back.
In the video, Gordon-Levitt talks about John Blake and the film’s ending. He says all of that is not up to him and the decision of whether or not to continue the film series with him as the lead is the studio’s decision. The actor acknowledges that with the way the film ended, it was unlikely that we would see John Blake, or should I say Robin John Blake, take up the cape and cowl.
His answer that Batman represents that there is a hero inside of us all pretty much confirms that we won’t be seeing a Batman sequel that relates to Nolan’s arc. But I love that Kimmel just reveals the character’s first name right there without saying “spoiler alert.”
So do you think Warner Bros. should move on and reboot Batman again or should they continue with the adventures of “Robin” John Blake as Batman/Robin/Nightwing?
