When they cast Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight to play the Joker, they made the decision to cast a younger, talented actor with credibility. It looks like the same thing may happen with the next Batman movie.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt appears to be on the short list to play The Riddler in the next movie.
Joseph has sort of followed the same path of Heath Ledger. Levitt however, was on a popular TV show, 3rd Rock from The Sun. He did a few teen movies, they even did one together, 10 Things I Hate About You. Then he moved on to indie movies, and has proved he can act.
The next Batman movie is still being written and is expected to be released sometime in 2012. (Photo by Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Images)
