Joseph Gordon-Levitt addresses Batman and Man Of Steel rumours

Also talks Sin City 2

Ever since the last reel of The Dark Knight Rises aired in the first public screening, tongues have been wagging over the prospect of Joseph Gordon-Levitt returning as Batman for the Justice League movie.

The latest variation on this theme is that JGL will be appearing in a Batman cameo in Man Of Steel, but the actor himself has revealed to MTV that this is the first he's heard of it.

"I hadn’t heard that one," he laughs. "It just goes to show how much you can believe rumours… I don’t think you should believe in any of them. If there’s something I’m going to be in, I’m going to tell you about it.”

One thing he definitely will be starring in is Robert Rodriguez's comic-book sequel, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, where he'll be playing a hardened gambler with a grudge against a sworn enemy.

Sin City 2 is going to be fun," agrees Gordon-Levitt. "[I'm playing] a quintessential Rodriguez badass. It’s going to be fun as hell.”

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For opens in the US on 4 October 2013

      Let the Nolan/Batman cannon die with dignity. No more cross-overs or spin-offs please. (Leave that to Marvel). Justice League is gonna be awful.

      I agree that the Nolan/Batman universe should be left alone now and i do think the Justice League is facing an uphill struggle to be a decent film, but i think the whole cross-over idea Marvel had was ingenious - i can't think of any other film in the history of me watching films where characters from different films have come together into one other major franchise (i'm sure someone will find something i've missed, but my point is that Marvel should at least be congratulated on that bold move - it could have been a massive failure, but it suits the comic book world perfectly, so its just up to DC not to drop the ball on it).

      and i think the only reason to re-boot Batman this early would be to include him in a larger cinematic universe and so would give someone else scope to put their take on the character forward. I love the first 2 Nolan bat-films as much as the next guy, but i don't think that they are the definitive, absolute only viable take on the character that someone could do. I bet people thought that about Burton's film before Nolan came along.

      Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy is perfect as far as I am concern, but I fail to understand why that makes the Justice League movie automatically awful? Is it directed by someone you know to be awful? No. Because it isn't directed by anyone at this point. So the question remains, why is it awful. How can a movie that doesn't exist be awful already?

      Here's hoping Nolan might be bold enough to do Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns in 15-20 years time.

      Nolan's Batman films were great because he took an intelligent and thoughtful approach towards the character (rather than just making it for kids to sell toys) with great scripts, acting and dialogue. His films were grounded in reality and he also recognized the importance of getting the villains right and getting great actors to play them. Three great films that can't be touched, no matter what the future Batman stuff is like. I fear however that the Batman character will be diluted into more palatable b******t for the reality tv crowd as Warner bros attempt to copy Marvels Avengers (the most over-rated film ever made - it was....ok) with this Justice League nonsense. It such a cynical attempt just to make more money (like they need it) when really they should now just turn attention to the Man of Steel film and perhaps develop sequels to that. Let Marvel do what they do which is really for kids - Warners should continue getting better directors, better scripts and better actors to make deeper and creatively more interesting films just as they did with Nolan's trilogy. Money talks though so I am sure they will f**k it all up.
