Joseph Gordon-Levitt played a good guy cop in 2012's The Dark Knight Rises, and (SPOILER ALERT!) it was revealed his character's full name was John Robin Blake.
"I don't have anything to do with that movie," Joseph, 32, said Tuesday, Oct. 2, on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno. "I was in a movie that was the end of a trilogy that I was super proud and fortunate to be in. I think these next movies are sort of a separate chapter."
He explained to David Letterman last month that he doesn't know if the Man of Steel movie, directed by Zack Snyder, and its sequel "are so much of a continuation of the Christopher Nolan Batman," adding, "I don't think they're really connected."
As for what Joseph thinks of Ben playing the Caped Crusader? "I think he's gonna be great," he said.
Super nice guy!
