Latest rumor suggests that the John Blake a.k.a Robin in 'The Dark Knight Rises' will 'absolutely' appear as the new Caped Crusader in Warner Bros. Pictures' long-gestating 'JLA' project.

Will be 's successor as Batman in DC's next film ""? In a latest report shared by HitFix, it is said that the actor playing John Blake a.k.a Robin in "" will "absolutely" be appearing in the "JLA" movie as the new Caped Crusader.

HitFix's report gets even more intriguing since it suggests that Gordon-Levitt may appear as Batman even before the "JLA" film itself. Rumor has it, Warner Bros. Pictures is "solidifying deals" for the Los Angeles-born actor and "at least one other actor" from Chris Nolan's Batman films.

Should the report be true, that might mean that the "Justice League" movie is in continuity with the ending of "The Dark Knight Rises".

"If the script inspires me and if there's a filmmaker that I respect and connect to...I'd consider anything," he said.

Rumor about Gordon-Levitt's possible involvement in "JLA" comes hot on heels of report that "" director Zack Snyder hinted that his Superman might be part of the DC superhero ensemble flick. "I don't know how 'Justice League' is going to be handled. Honestly, I don't. But 'The Man of Steel' exists, and Superman is in it. I don't know how you'd move forward without acknowledging that," Snyder told New York Post recently.

"Justice League" will see DC's most famous superheroes, Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, the Flash and more, uniting to fight evil forces. The project is still hunting for its director, but it has tapped Will Beall as the screenwriter. The movie has been rumored to be released in 2015, which could put it up right against Marvel's "The Avengers 2".
