Gordon-Levitt plays John Blake in this final installment of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. Blake is a young police officer whose idealism and heroic deeds in solving crime in the city gets him a promotion from Commissioner James Gordon, played by Gary Oldman. The film also features Christian Bale as Batman, Michael Caine as butler Alfred Pennyworth, and Anne Hathaway as Catwoman. On his character:
I would call him an idealist. Gotham has become a sort of a cynical place. It’s been eight years since the last movie ended, and Batman is nowhere to be seen, status quo has set in, the rich getting richer, no one asking a lot of questions. But Blake is the kind of guy that will raise his hand and he doesn’t mind ruffling a few feathers.
