Could Joseph Gordon-Levitt Be the Next “Riddler”?

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is one of the names being thrown around for the next installment of Batman. I loved him on “3rd Rock from the Sun”…he was too adorable! Do you think that Joseph would be a good fit for the Riddler?

Accoridng to Hollywood Life,

“Chris really dug Joseph [as an actor],” a source close to the director tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “There was a joke at first between them [on the set of Inception] that Joseph wanted to read for Batman 3 and things heated up as filming continued.”

Adds the insider, “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 short list.” This should make fans happy, especially as several fan sites have expressed a wish to see the 500 Days of Summer cutie score the role!

But don’t expect to find out anytime soon whether the 29-year-old actor will actually become The Riddler in reality — the script is still being written! Also don’t expect to see JGL take on his 10 Things I Hate About You co-star Heath Ledger’s posthumous Oscar-winning role of The Joker, either — Nolan has already confirmed that he won’t be recasting that particular part. Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s rep says, “This is not true.”

I wouldn’t think anyone should take over the Joker role…it was Heath’s role and will always be!
