Joseph Gordon-Levitt to be Robin in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES?

Take this with a hefty grain of salt, but the latest rumor says that Robin will be in the greatly anticipated THE DARK KNIGHT RISES.

WILX is reporting that a DKR crew was up in Michigan scouting locations in Grand Ledge's Fitzgerald Park last week. Eaton County and Grand Ledge officials have anonymously come forward saying they were scouting the locations for potential lairs for Batman's sidekick Robin.

Given the recent casting announcement that Joseph Gordon-Levitt would be joining the cast, it would make sense to think that he could be the new boy wonder. After his impressive turn in INCEPTION, we know he can handle action and wire work. However, both star Christian Bale and director Christopher Nolan have repeatedly said that Robin will never appear in any of their Batman films, so, again huge rumor.

This scouting trip could be for naught if the healthy filming tax breaks in Michigan are slashed in the next budget. The 42% cut is a strong incentive for big budget fare to film there over locations in California or New York.
