Though this is very much a rumor, Hit Flix is reporting “sources” claim Joseph Gordon-Levitt will play Batman in Warner Bros. upcoming Justice League film. Presumably this will tie in the continuity between his character in The Dark Knight Rises and the new Justice League. This news comes at a time when director Zack Snyder seems to be shying away from making a direct and firm connection between his upcoming Man of Steel movie and Justice League.
Does this all seem likely? Could a layperson handle a Batman not named Bruce Wayne?
