Late last night the news surfaced that Joseph Gordon-Levitt will be the new Batman in the Justice League movie with it even speculated that he might be appearing in the upcoming Man of Steel trailer.
It wasn’t rumored, but was stated to be true.
Cosmic Book News contacted our DC Entertainment source who said it’s “bullsh-t.”
In addition, the reps of Joseph Gordon-Levitt have come out and “have refuted the rumor entirely,” as reported by Hollywood.com.
The rumor had it that Joseph Gordon-Levitt would be the new Batman in the Justice League movie with another Christopher Nolan actor that was featured in The Dark Knight Trilogy, speculated to be Gary Oldman, Commissioner Gordon.
The rumor went on to mention how Warner Bros. was basically telling Christopher Nolan “too bad” (which was most likely the first indication that it was false) in going forth with a Justice League movie related to his Dark Knight Trilogy.
Our own source told us that the studio had Jake Gyllenhaal as their favorite for the new Batman, but the actual choice for the new Batman comes down to the director, and a Batman that will most likely go on to be featured in the Batman 2016 reboot.
The news of JGL not being the new Batman really comes as no surprise as the thought of a Batman in the Justice League movie who is not Bruce Wayne is just too unbelievable. Right?
