Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard to Star in ‘Dark Knight Rises’

As has been rumored for some time now, Academy Award winner Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-Levitt will be in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. And their parts have been revealed, as well, and they are both different than what had been rumored.

Gordon-Levitt will play John Blake, a Gotham City cop who is given a special assignment under the command of Commissioner Gordon.

Cotillard will play Miranda Tate, a Wayne Enterprises board member who wants Bruce Wayne, who’s still grieving, to resume his father’s philanthropic endeavors in the city.

The Dark Knight Rises is scheduled for a release of July 20, 2012.

What does it mean? Now it gets interesting as the pieces of Christopher Nolan’s puzzle are starting to come together. Nolan has had a unique take on the Batman mythos from day one and it’ll be fascinating to see where he takes it in what is his final film in the series.
