When it comes to comic book movies, you can always count on rumors to surface before any official announcements. It's strange that you don't often see casting rumors as often for movies in other genres. There has been some talk lately about Warner Bros.' plans for Superman, Batman and the Justice League.
I can't really say anything to that, because that's a big spoiler. I will say, yeah, they trust me to keep them on course.
It's also been said that whoever plays Batman in the Justice League movie will carry the Bat-franchise on in solo movies as well. The latest rumor suggests that Josephe Gordon-Levitt will be that actor.
Hitfix exclusively reported that according to "sources," Josephe Gordon-Levitt will "absolultely be appearing in Justice League as the new Batman."
Of course, there is no mention of what these sources are but Hitfix isn't a site that simply throws rumors around for the sake of starting rumors.
The speculation continues that Gordon-Levitt could be suiting up before Justice League and make a cameo in Man of Steel. If he is the one to take on the mantle, it would make sense to try to have a connection start in next summer's film. This would also tie the movies into Christopher Nolan's Batman universe.
Justice League is set for release in 2015. Man of Steel will be released on June 14, 2013. You can bet people will be watching Gordon-Levitt to see whether or not he visits the Man of Steel set anytime soon. Then again, if this is true, perhaps he's already filmed something which may have been the source of this news.
