So forget all that Armie Hammer business, because apparently Warner Bros. has figured out a way to make this Joseph Gordon-Levitt thing work so they can keep printing money from the Christopher Nolan movies without involving Christopher Nolan who has repeatedly stated he won’t touch Justice League with a ten-foot pole. Which coincidentally was also the on-set nickname for Morgan Freeman‘s penis and now you’ve been incepted. *BRAAAAHHHHHMMMM* HitFix reports:
According to sources, Joseph Gordon-Levitt absolutely will be appearing in “Justice League” as the new Batman.
Now here’s where things get interesting. The more insistent the drumbeat has become, the more poking around I’ve been doing, and it’s looking like we may see Gordon-Levitt in the suit earlier than that. They’re a long way from filming anything “Justice League” related, but they appear to be solidifying deals for Gordon-Levitt and, potentially, at least one other actor from the Nolan films to do… something.
Unfortunately, I have my own exclusive and that “something” is my birthday party. Apparently you can’t get Christian Bale unless you’re dying of cancer and/or been shot by a lunatic, both of which are surprisingly hard to fake. But I did get Gary Oldman who kept mumbling something about Liam Neeson not being the only one who’ll do anything for a dollar. I didn’t know what that meant, but just assumed it was Islamaphobic and nodded politely to avoid angering his mustache.
UPDATE: Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s rep have “refuted the rumor entirely,” according to Hollywood.com, but you know who else refuted things? The Nazis. This proves nothing!
