Gordon-Levitt is the Riddler?

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been tipped to join the cast of Batman 3. According to reports, Christopher Nolan is looking for the actor to play the role of the Riddler.

The actor, who worked with Nolan on the set of Inception, is said to be the first choice for the part.

“Chris really dug Joseph [as an actor],” a source told Hollywood Life.

“There was a joke at first between them that Joseph wanted to read for Batman 3 and things heated up as filming continued.”

The insider added: “It’s not 100% confirmed that he’s getting [the role of The Riddler] but there’s certainly talk about it. Joseph is definitely on the shortlist.”
