Joseph Gordon-Levitt has had an incredible year in 2012 thus far. When he wasn’t parodying Magic Mike by stripping onSaturday Night Live, he was trading blows with Bruce Willis in one of the most talked about films of the Fall Looper. While he could be aiming for Oscar glory in the upcoming Steven Spielberg biopic Lincoln, his most buzzed about role of the year is easily his inclusion in the finale The Dark Knight Rises.
Playing a vital role to the Batman mythos that ended just minutes before coming full circle on-screen, there’s been some rumors regarding a possible return to the superhero universe. Now, it seems there could be some truth to that in DC Comics’ most ambitious adaptation to date Justice League…but there have to be some requirements met as Levitt reveals in an all new interview.
Now don’t get your hopes up just yet: he tosses around the idea very briefly, but Levitt doesn’t exactly say he’ll be slapping on tights just yet.
When asked if he could potentially play a part in Justice League, the actor simply responded “You never know. If the script inspires me and if there’s a filmmaker that I respect and connect to…I’d consider anything.”
But even if he were to return to Warner Brothers and superhero films altogether, that doesn’t necessarily mean he’ll be putting on the cowl exactly where he left off. The studio has been rumored at approaching Armie Hammer for the role of Batman once more, which means Joseph Gordon-Levitt could play another hero…The Flash perhaps? Granted it’s a long shot, but this is a role that once upon a time Adam Brody was cast to play.
Justice League is said to be aiming for a Summer 2015 release, but there are no official dates for a theatrical bow or production start yet in place.
