Interesting news coming from the fan site ComicBookMovie which is reporting via an insider that they know what role Joseph Gordon Levitt is set to play in the upcoming release of The Dark Knight Rises.
We have already laughed at the rumors of him playing Robin and speculated on him playing Night Wing but it seems its a new villain and one that ties back to the first Dark Knight film;
Well he has signed on to the film in a villainous role previously undisclosed until now. Levitt will be portraying Alberto Falcone aka the Holiday Killer.
He is the estranged son of former mob boss Carmine Falcone (portrayed by Tom Wilkinson in Batman Begins) who returns to Gotham to take over the underworld once fiercly ruled by his father before the arrival of Batman.
What do you think of this choice? In other interesting news the film will be shooting in Bucharest this spring and once again Robin Williams name has come up. A hungarian paper online site is reporting that the whole gang will be in Bucharest filming Dark Knight Rises and Robin Williams is listed as one of those in town to shoot. Not sure what role he will play but perhaps one of you esteemed fan boys can enlighten me in the comments.
