Joseph Gordon-Levitt has said that any Robin movie would not be up to him.

The actor's character John Blake replaces Batman as Gotham's protector at the end of The Dark Knight Rises and it is revealed that his birth name is Robin.

Asked if he would be interested in a spinoff Robin film, Gordon-Levitt told ShortList: "That's not up to me. I don't have the rights to that character, but I pick my projects the same way.

"If there's a script I find inspiring and a filmmaker I have a connection with, I'm interested."

Of when Christopher Nolan told him about the reveal of his character's name, Gordon-Levitt added: "He told me before I read the script. I was one of a handful of people who had a complete script for the last pages, so I knew all along.


"I was happy to keep it a secret. It's such a fantastic ending, I think. And I certainly didn't want to spoil it.

"It's a movie that I'm enormously honoured and proud to be a part of and the last thing I would want is to contaminate anybody's experience of it."
