Joseph Gordon-Levitt nixes the ‘Dark Knight Rises’ sequels rumors

Christopher Nolan certainly left the door open for a sequel to “The Dark Knight Rises” and Joseph Gordon-Levitt would certainly be key to that project. The “Inception” actor debunked some of these rumors while promoting his latest film “Premium Rush.”

While talking to MTV in an interview published Wednesday, the “50/50” attempted to dodge direct questions about a sequel to “Rises,” simply saying “It’s not up to me.”

The blockbuster film just crossed the $900 million mark this week in worldwide box office and Gordon-Levitt just wanted to relish the experience of the film.

“I say, ‘How awesome is it to get to be in that movie?’ ”

John Blake, a Gotham police officer turns detective and is a key figure throughout the battle against Bane. Nolan’s climax truly seemed to please fans, but also leaving them hanging and thirsting for more. Gordon-Levitt says that wasn’t ever talked about during the production.

“Honestly, no, we never talked about that,” he said.

The “Looper” star instead praised the film as a perfect conclusion to a fantastic trilogy.

“Honestly, I know a lot of people talk about the ending of that movie being a setup for a sequel. I don’t think that’s necessarily what it is. I think it’s a great, perfect ending for that trilogy.”

“The Dark Knight Rises” is still in theaters. Christian Bale, Morgan Freeman, Gary Oldman and Michael Caine all return to reprise their roles from the previous two Batman films. Gordon-Levitt is joined by fellow newcomers Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Josh Pence, Juno Temple and Matthew Modine.
