Levitt is John Blake in 'Dark Knight Rises'

UPDATE: Levitt will actually be playing, “John Blake, a Gotham City beat cop assigned to special duty under the command of Commissioner Gordon”.

Variety has reported that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is confirmed to play Alberto Falcone in The Dark Knight Rises. For those of you who are familiar with The Long Halloween graphic novel Alberto Falcone is the son of Carmine (Tom Wilkinson) and also the infamous Holiday Killer.

Whether the Holiday Killer plotline will make it into the film, or Alberto poses more of a minor threat to Batman has yet to be seen. But pieces are coming together and it seems like we have a better idea where The Dark Knight Rises is going.

Finally we have it from a solid source. Now, if only we can influence some sort of a name change. The current title stirs images of "Hannibal Rising."

The name implies a theme of coming around full circle. As long as the film is good they can call it The Dark Knight 2: Electric Boogaloo for all I care.

Cool. I imagine that we'll see a partnership between Falcone and Bane, one that likely will end with the former being broken in half by the latter; seems to be the proclivity of Nolan's series that the more down-to-earth villains get swallowed up by the fantastical, comic booky antagonists. Either way, great news.

For my money there is nothing cooler than the idea of a city folding in on itself.

Ant-man Finally Casted?

It looks like Nathan Fillion might be playing a superhero afterall. After being considered for roles in Green Lantern, and Captain America,Fillion (most remembered as Malcolm Reynolds in the cult-hit Firefly) is reportedly in final negotiations to play Dr. Hank Pym in the new Avengers film. It hasn't been stated whether Pym would be Ant-man in the film, or just a S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist, but we're holding out hope.

The Avengers hits theatres in 2012.
