With the recent “Man of Steel” trailer being such a show-stopper, one can only imagine that JGL as Batman for even one frame of that movie will send a mass fan-explosion of ecstasy.
Despite denials by Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s reps that he is putting on the cape and cowl for an upcoming “Justice League” movie — much less next year’s “Man of Steel” — I am a tenacious fangirl and am willing to grasp at any straws flung my way. MTV Splash Page reports this morning that while “Man of Steel” producer Christopher Nolan didn’t exactly say “yes” concerning a JGL/Batman cameo in “MOF” — he didn’t quite deny it, either. They quote a recent Movieline interview with Nolan:
“I can’t talk about that. You know that,” Nolan answered when asked about Gordon-Levitt’s rumored involvement, wearing what Movieline called a “Cheshire smile.”
Splash Page further goes on to give this rumor more than their customary few grains of salt:
“So why are we giving this some credibility? Well, because in the past Nolan would have typically just shot the rumor down. Either he’s playing along to mislead people, or that ’Robin’ tease at the end of “The Dark Knight Rises” was more than just a tease.”
I have to agree: the fact that Nolan, after so many denials, ended up putting “Robin” in “The Dark Knight Rises” both shows that he knows how to keep a secret and finesse denials/non-denials.
With the recent “Man of Steel” trailer being such a show-stopper, one can only imagine that JGL as Batman for even one frame of that movie will send a mass fan-explosion of ecstasy. It would also bode well for the 2015 “Justice League” movie, planting seeds for the film years in advance and ramping up excitement.
Well, as of yet JGL’s not talking:
