Warner Bros. today confirmed the rumors circulating through Gotham City. Academy Award winner Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s roles for The Dark Knight Rises have been announced.

Cotillard will play Miranda Tate, a board member for Wayne Industries, and Gordon-Levitt will play Gotham City beat cop John Blake assigned under the command of Commissioner Gordon.

The two will join fellow Inception cast members Tom Hardy who was announced in January to be playing the villainous Bane, Michael Caine who will reprise his role as Alfred, and, of course, director Christopher Nolan.

The pair were previously speculated to play Talia Al Ghul, daughter of Bruce Wayne’s trainer-turned-enemy, and Alberto Falcone, son of former mob kingpin Carmine Falcone who assumes the identity of the Holiday Killer.

To be honest, though, I’m glad to hear they won’t be added to the film’s list of villains. With Hardy’s Bane and Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle (alter-ego of Catwoman), I was getting worried the movie would become too villain-heavy.

The rest of the cast will consist of familiar faces Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne, Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox. The Dark Knight Rises is scheduled to come out June 20, 2012.
