New Dark Knight Rises Clip Shows Us JGL's John Blake
Itís still unclear how large of a role Joseph Gordon-Levitt will play in The Dark Knight Rises, but now we know heíll at least get a chance to spar with Gary Oldman. In a brand new clip debuted last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, JGLís John Blake is seen confronting Commissioner Gordon about Batmanís real identity. He has questions, big questions on the eighth anniversary of Batmanís disappearance and Harvey Dentís death, and while Gordon knows some of the answers, heís not excited about sharing.
You can take a look at the roughly thirty second spot belowÖ
The great thing about the interaction here is the contrast between the beaten down Gordon and the full-of-energy Blake. The former has battled all his life. Heís seen both allies and foes rise to the top of Gotham, and while he hasnít given up hope, heís definitely tired. The latter, on the other hand, is hungry and ready to question. Heís seen less, which, in a way, makes him more powerful.
Where any of this is going or who Blake might turn into are questions the Internet has been wrestling with for months. Unfortunately for those dying to know, this footage didnít clear any of those queries up, but hopefully, it did at least make you a little more excited to find out later this month.
