Joseph Gordon-Levitt is set to play Batman in Justice League.
The actor is said to have agreed a deal with Warner Bros. to take on the role of the Caped Crusader in their new superhero ensemble, which will also feature Superman and Wonder Woman.
A source said: "Joseph Gordon-Levitt absolutely will be appearing in Justice League as the new Batman."
In Christopher Nolan's latest Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises, Gordon-Levitt's character, John Blake, seemingly assumes the role of Batman by walking into the Bat Cave, led there by a retired Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale).
According to the site, these scenes "turned into conversation, and that conversation seems to be solidifying into a plan".
Gordon-Levitt recently revealed how he would consider starring in Justice League as long as it felt right.
He said: "It always depends. I always pick projects that I want to be involved in for the same reasons.
"Is the script really good? Is the filmmaker a really inspired artist that I feel connected to? That's what I always pay attention to."
