The Dark Knight Rises (2012): Stargate's Christopher Judge Battles Joseph Gordon-Levitt


1160 We know (or do we?!) that Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays the character of Gotham City Police Officer John Blake in The Dark Knight Rises.

What we don't know is who the character Christopher Judge, of Stargate fame, will play.

Judge confirmed last July that he was cast in The Dark Knight Rises, and so far, we haven't heard nor seen of him since.

That's because there is a lot of secrecy surrounding the character, so much so, that Judge wouldn't - or couldn't - talk about it in a recent appearance on the David Boze radio show.

"I can talk more about the experience than the role," Judge offered with a laugh. "I was saying this earlier, it was one of the most bizarre experience[s]. Not the being on set or not dealing with anyone, but the secrecy surrounding it. I've never really dealt with a project of that scale."

What Judge did mention, which is of interest to Batman fans, was training a week for a fight sequence with Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

"In this role we rehearsed for a week for one fight scene. I mean, that was, you know it's cool, but it's not that long," Judge said.

"Little did I know that Joe would not be pulling his punches when we we do—," Judge said with a laughter.

1161 Judge also spoke on the physicality required by director Christopher Nolan and on working with Christian Bale, which you can listen to in the player below.

Sorry Stargate fans, but in regards to a third movie, Judge offered up that one almost came through the wormhole, but to do MGM's financial problems, Stargate never made it home.

And just who might Judge be playing in The Dark Knight Rises? The current thought on the net is — Killer Croc! And the voice fits.

The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters July 20th, 2012 and is directed by Christopher Nolan starring Christian Bale as Batman, Tom Hardy as Bane, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon, Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox, Michael Cain as Alfred, Juno Temple and Josh Pence as a young Ra's al Ghul.
