MTV caught up with actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt recently and got him talking about the ending of The Dark Knight Rises and although he thinks the ending was a perfect way to end Christopher Nolan’s trilogy they asked him what his thoughts are on the possibility that they’ll be continuing the story with a spinoff for John Blake.
Spoilers follow the break: *If you do not want key moments of the movie ruined for you, do not read any further.*
While fans of the series know that Chris Nolan Dropped the massive bombshell at the end of The Dark Knight Rises, being John Blake’s first name being Robin and his inheriting the Batcave from Batman and the obvious implication to carry on his work, fans have argued since its premier if that means the next Batman film will carry on after that moment with JGL playing center stage as the new Batman, or Robin, or even Nightwing.
When MTV asked Levitt about the possibility of such a film being made, Levitt goes on to say though that there were never any hypothetical conversation on set to specify that if the story continued on whether he’d be Batman, Nightwing or Robin.
Honestly, no, we never talked about that. And honestly I know a lot of people talk about the ending of that movie being a setup for a sequel but I don’t think that’s necessarily what it is. It’s a great, perfect ending for that trilogy.
While it can be seen as unfortunate news, the fact it, it was a perfect ending to the trilogy he began, and it is time for someone else to show the world their view of Batman.
