Joseph G-L not expecting Robin film

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has commented on the potential for him to star in a Batman spin-off movie.

In the final scenes of Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises his orphaned cop character is seen discovering the Batcave after it is revealed his real name is Robin.

But Joseph told Jimmy Kimmel Live: "I don't get to decide those things. That's the honest truth, man. You think I get to make those decisions? I don't think it's necessarily a set-up [for a sequel].

"I think it's a great ending for that trilogy. Even if you go back to Batman Begins, he's talking about how Batman is more than a man. It's a symbol. A hero can be anybody, and we all have heroes inside of us. That's a theme that runs throughout the trilogy," reported the actor as saying.

Christopher Nolan has made it clear The Dark Knight Rises is his final film in his trilogy.

Asked about being given the role of Robin in the film, Joseph said: "It's pretty awesome, right?

"I was a fan of those movies before I ever met [Christopher Nolan] or did Inception or ever thought I was going to get to do The Dark Knight Rises. He's such a great storyteller and filmmaker. It was such an honour."
