Los Angeles - Joseph Gordon-Levitt is set to play Batman in Justice League
The actor is said to have agreed a deal with Warner Bros to take on the role of the Caped Crusader in their new superhero ensemble, which will also feature Superman and Wonder Woman.
Website HitFix said: "Joseph Gordon-Levitt absolutely will be appearing in Justice League
as the new Batman."
In Christopher Nolan's latest Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises
, Gordon-Levitt's character, John Blake, inherits the Bat Cave and discovers it through co-ordinates left to him by a retired, but thought to be dead Bruce Wayne. 'Is the script really good?'
According to the site, these scenes "turned into conversation, and that conversation seems to be solidifying into a plan".
Gordon-Levitt recently revealed how he would consider starring in Justice League
as long as it felt right.
He said: "It always depends. I always pick projects that I want to be involved in for the same reasons.
"Is the script really good? Is the filmmaker a really inspired artist that I feel connected to? That's what I always pay attention to."
