Joseph Gordan-Levitt Spurns Marvel, Joins Sin City Sequel

The Internet heartthrob will play Johnny, a gambler.

Source: Deadline.

Internet heartthrob and movie jinx Joseph Gordon-Levitt has turned down a chance to play Star-Lord in the upcoming Marvel film Guardians of the Galaxy.  Instead, he will play Johnny in the upcoming Sin City sequel.  Johnny, a gambler of some sort, is a new character and will act as a sort of bridge role in between the various disparate plots running throughout the movie. 

Fans seemed upset at the thought that Gordon-Levitt, or "JGL" as he's known throughout the Joseph Gordon-Levitt community, spurned both Marvel's offer and an alleged chance to play Batman in the non-existant Justice League movie. 

"This certainly ruins my hit count for the next six months," said Rick of, a site known for publishing at least two JGL rumor articles a day.  "I don't understand why he'd give up the chance to make another big superhero movie for some black and white film," he added as he sadly deleted a draft of his latest article "Would Joseph Gordon-Levitt Be Even More Appealing as Batman with Different Colored Eyes" 

However, Hollywood insiders seemed pleased at the news.  "JGL and Sin City 2 are a match in heaven," said one.  "One can't carry a movie and the other is a surefire flop.  The studio's found an excellent scapegoat for when this thing bites the dust."

Gordon-Levitt, on his part, seemed excited by the new role.  "I love how the first movie uses VFX, not to make fake things look real, but to create a heightened world unburdened by the look and feel of reality," he said in a statement. "Plus, nobody makes a badass like [director Robert] Rodriguez."  

Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For will probably fail in theatres in 2014.

I wish they were doing "Family Values" instead of "A Dame to Kill For"
