Marion Cotillard & Joseph Gordon-Levitt's 'Dark Knight' Characters Revealed!

It’s official – Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-Levitt have joined the cast of The Dark Knight Rises, Warner Bros. has announced.

Earlier this year, the two actors were reported to have landed roles in the Christopher Nolan-directed flick, though their characters were unknown.

Now we know who they’ll be playing!

Joseph will take on the role of John Blake, “a Gotham City cop who is given a special assignment under the command of Commissioner Gordon,” according to The Wrap.

Meanwhile, Marion “will play Miranda Tate, a Wayne Enterprises board member who wants to help Bruce Wayne, who’s still grieving, resume his father’s philanthropic endeavors in the city.”

Christian Bale reprises his role as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Anne Hathaway will play Catwoman, and Tom Hardy will play Bane.

    Wohooo!! Let me tell you, this will be an Anne Hathaway you’ve never seen, and she’s going to knock everyone’s socks off in The Dark Knight Rises! You are going to be so killed by her performance. I can’t tell you how good she is going to be as a strong, independent, sexy Catwoman. Oh, she is going to be so good in this. It’s unbelievable the performance she is going to give. It’s amazing. Hahah.. freakin’ fantastic, can’t wait! Man! I feel like a woman!
