JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT

Michigan based New Channel 10, Wilx.com, reports that representatives from The Dark Knight Rises were in town to scout out potential locations for the movie in Grand Ledge's Fitzgerald Park.

Get this - according to anonymous sources, "They looked at the Ledges as well as a water treatment plant located inside the park. Sources say the area is being considered as a hideout for Batman sidekick Robin."

Robin?

We know from past comments, that director Christopher Nolan has stated he is not interested in having Robin appear. Apparently, the director went so far to say that as long as he is on as director, Robin will not be appearing - as he is in a crib somewhere.

Strong words.

NIGHTWING

What about Nightwing?

A few days ago we learned that Joseph Gordon-Levitt, of Nolan's Inception, was in talks to have a role in The Dark Knight Rises. Could the actor skip playing Robin altogether and go right to Nightwing? It does seem Nolan, more or less, considers the character of Robin to be a bit childish; however, as Nightwing is the elder Robin, this might work for him.

Dick Grayson or Jason Todd?

The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters July 20th 2012 and is directed by Christopher Nolan starring Christan Bale as Batman.
