It’s like when you were a kid and you find out your mom has gum in her purse. Two seconds ago you had no desire for gum, and now you’re screaming and grabbing the steering wheel, trying to get at that sweet, sweet Wrigleys. Does that analogy make any sense all? What we’re trying saying is, now that we have heard the rumor that Joseph Gordon-Levitt could play Batman in either Justice League or as a cameo in the upcoming Superman movie Man of Steel, we want it to happen so bad. So we guess the gum would be Joseph Gordon-Levitt, your mom would be Hollywood and the steering wheel would be, um, let’s say, public opinion. We’re not English professors here, people!
Sadly, despite the support of nerds worldwide, it seems that the gossip is just gossip…for now. Hollywood.com reports that JRL’s reps “have refuted the rumor entirely.” However! Since it’s pretty obvious from the buzz that there is at least a curiosity about Gordon-Levitt donning the cape and cowl, maybe Justice League filmmakers or Man of Steel director Zack Snyder will make it happen? This could be like Mark Wahlberg and Transformers 4 all over again! Except we actually want this one to happen!
