Joseph Gordon-Levitt to star as The Riddler in ‘Batman 3’?

'Inception' actor could be set for new Christopher Nolan film

Inception and 500 Days Of Summer star Joseph Gordon-Levitt could be set for a new role, as The Riddler in Batman 3.

The actor stars in Christopher Nolan‘s new film Inception, and is thought to be set for the director’s next project, reports Hollywood Life.

Nolan has confirmed that he won’t be recasting Heath Ledger’s character, The Joker, after the actor died in 2008, months after finishing work on The Dark Knight.

Eddie Murphy is also among the names rumoured to be in with a chance of grabbing The Riddler role.

The film is still being written by David Goyer and will be released in 2012.
