After all the rumors and speculation, Variety has confirmed that Joseph Gordon-Levitt will reteam with Christopher Nolan for The Dark Knight Rises. Many speculated that JGL would play the Riddler or Deadshop, but he will be playing Alberto Falcone, the son of Mafia chieftain Carmine Falcone, the character Tom Wilkinson played in "Batman Begins." Alberto Falcone, who is also known as The Holiday Killer, would bring Nolan's superhero trilogy full-circle.
The Dark Knight Rises is scheduled for release on July 20, 2012.
Update: Reports are now saying that Joseph will not be playing the Holiday Killer. Hmmm…we wonder who he will be playing!
