Here's a riddle: Will Joseph Gordon-Levitt be the next 'Batman' villain?



Batman fans, here's some pre-Comic Con news to savor. It seems that the Riddler will be the villain in the sequel to The Dark Knight. And rumor has it the part will be played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, according to the First Showing movie website.

First Showing hedges it rumor-mongering, saying the casting info could change at anytime. Also be wary, they caution, because the studio had pegged the Riddler's age range as 35 to 45, while Gordon-Levitt is only 29 years old.

"On the lighter side though, the actor is fresh off working with [Chris] Nolan on the brilliant Inception, so they've surely developed quite a working relationship as Gordon-Levitt called him 'the genuine article… a real artist' and 'a unique voice,' " First Showing says.
