Digital Spy sat down with Gordon-Levitt to discuss growing up as a Batman fan, how Nolan has humanised the DC hero and why he doesn't think there's a big need for him to return to the franchise.
On reteaming with Nolan, Gordon-Levitt said: "I would do anything for Chris, anything he asked me to do, but especially to be in a Batman movie.
"I've been a fan of Batman ever since I've been a little kid and his movies in particular have taken it to another level.
"His movies really turned Bruce Wayne into a fully-rendered human being. They're Batman movies for sure but they're dignified dramas underneath that, and I think audiences can feel that level of sophistication and appreciate it."
The 31-year-old added that he thinks The Dark Knight Rises offers up a satisfactory end point to this particular Batman story.
"I just love that this movie has such a great ending," he said. "They make a lot of sequels, they call them trilogies sometimes. They're usually not really a trilogy they're just another sequel. This trilogy is one - it has a beginning, a middle and this is a very satisfying end."
