t was once reported that Christopher Nolan has been looking to bring several of his "Inception" cast members for "The Dark Knight Rises." Tom Hardy is already on board as Bane and there were talks that Joseph Gordon-Levitt would play The Riddler.
Nolan has previously confirmed that The Riddler won't appear in the film, but Deadline has now learned that Gordon-Levitt will still appear in "The Dark Knight Rises." As always, it's not clear what role he will be playing.
The third Batman film also has Anne Hathaway on board to play Selina Kyle (Catwoman) and is set to begin shooting in May for a July 20th, 2012 release.
