Deadline as well as Newsarama have reported that actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt is close to sealing a deal and re-team with his Inception director Christopher Nolan in The Dark Knight Rises. The actor who played Leonardo DiCaprio's "Point Man" Arthur in the 2010 dream-bending action film is in talks with Nolan to play a part in the third Batman movie, but his role is still unspecified as of this point. Months ago, he was rumored to be The Riddler, as well as a potential replacement for the late Heath Ledger's role as The Joker from The Dark Knight. All of those whispers proved false however, but now it can be confirmed that JGL may be cast in Nolan's new Bat-flick. We'll just have to wait and see how this goes, but it will also reunite the actor with Tom Hardy, who also co-starred in Inception as Eames and will be playing Bane in The Dark Knight Rises.
