Joseph Gordon-Levitt to play Batman

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."

    Bad idea. Joseph's role as Batman does not tie-in with tth e Justice League series at all, because this is a Batman, and the Batman is Justice League IS Bruce Wayne, even in the New 52.
