News out of H’wood this afternoon has Warner Bros. confirming the casting of Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Marion Cotillard for The Dark Knight Rises.

Gordon-Levitt will play John Blake, a Gotham City beat cop assigned to special duty under the command of Commisioner Gordon, while Cotillard will play Miranda Tate, a Wayne Enterprises board member eager to help a still-grieving Bruce Wayne resume his father’s philanthropic endeavors for Gotham.

With news that Hugo Strange will play a part in the movie, it sounds more like Prey than ever before.

    Gordon-Levitt looks like that Third Rock from the Sun kid all grown up. Is it him?

    Interesting. Do either of these characters have a basis in any characters from the comics? I googled their names but didn’t get anything.
