The Dark Knight Rises has added two more stars to its cast: Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Marion Cotillard. Warner Bros. announced on Tuesday that Gordon-Levitt and Cotillard, co-stars in Inception, have signed on to appear in the final film of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight tales, reports USA Today. Another Inception star, Tom Hardy, will appear in the film as well. While Cotillard will play Miranda Tate an ally of Christian Bale’s Bruce Wayne, Gordon-Levitt will play a Gotham City beat cop. In a press release, Nolan announces, "When you collaborate with people as talented as Marion and Joe, it comes as no surprise that you would want to repeat the experience. I am looking forward to working with both of them again." MTV News reports that both Cotillard and Gordon-Levitt were rumored to be re-joining Nolan for the final Batman film, but it isn’t until now that it is officially confirmed.
