We've known for awhile now that both Inception stars Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-Levitt would reunite with director Christopher Nolan for The Dark Knight Rises. However, we haven't really been sure who they would play in the film. Rumors have been circulating, including one about Gordon-Levitt playing Alberto Falcone, but today a press release from Warner Bros. confirmed their casting and even reveals their roles in the anticipated blockbuster sequel. If you're worried about an overcrowded cast, it doesn't seem like the roles are very big, and talents like these are welcome in any film. More details below!
Cotillard will appear as Miranda Tate, a Wayne Enterprises board member eager to help a still-grieving Bruce Wayne resume his father's philanthropic endeavors for Gotham. Meanwhile, Gordon-Levitt will play John Blake, a Gotham City beat cop assigned to special duty under the command of Commissioner Gordon. Nolan says, "When you collaborate with people as talented as Marion and Joe, it comes as no surprise that you would want to repeat the experience. I immediately thought of them for the roles of Miranda and Blake, and I am looking forward to working with both of them again." I'm certainly looking forward to seeing them and the rest of the cast in The Dark Knight Rises next summer. How's it looking?
