Joseph Gordon-Levitt calls the conclusion to The Dark Knight Rises "perfect"

Joseph Gordon-Levitt The Dark Knight Rises Christopher Nolan

Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, particularly THE DARK KNIGHT, often winds up on a great many lists of the best comic-book movies of all time, but that's not to say that the series is completely immune to valid criticism. One aspect which comes under fire from fans is the ending to THE DARK KNIGHT RISES which, spoiler alert, found Batman/Bruce Wayne faking his death after saving Gotham and passing the keys to the Bat-cave to John Blake (Joseph Gordon-Levitt). Some took issue with the idea that Bruce Wayne would hang up the cowl, but as Joseph Gordon-Levitt told CinemaBlend, Batman is more than a man, he's a symbol.

The actor was asked whether or not he'd ever be interesting in starring in a Batman film which featured his DARK KNIGHT RISES character taking on the mantle of Batman, but he believes that Nolan wrapped up the story perfectly.

I know we're all used to the sort of Marvel movies, which are just kind of endless series. They don't really have a beginning, middle, and end. But I think Nolan very much thought of that movie as a conclusion, and there's a theme that runs through all three of those movies that begins in the first movie, runs through the second movie and it concludes in that moment where he says that Batman is more than a man, Batman is a symbol. And so to have another man other than Bruce Wayne kind of becoming Batman at the end of that trilogy, I think that's the perfect ending to that story.

Do you agree with Gordon-Levitt's assessment or do you have a problem with how Christopher Nolan wrapped up THE DARK KNIGHT RISES? If so, what would you have done differently? Our next dose of Joseph Gordon-Levitt will arrive on September 16, 2016 as he takes on the title role in Oliver Stone's SNOWDEN.
