Rumours that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is to play a gangster in The Dark Knight Rises have emerged.

According to Comic Book Movie, an anonymous source revealed that the actor will portray the criminal Alberto Falcone in the Christopher Nolan film.

The character is the son of Tom Wilkinson's Carmine Falcone from Batman Begins. He is featured heavily in the comic plotline The Long Halloween, which Nolan used as reference material for previous films in the series.

It was announced that Gordon-Levitt has joined the movie earlier this month. The character he is playing is yet to be officially confirmed.

The Dark Knight Rises is released in July next year.
