Who is Joseph Gordon-Levitt playing in TDKR? New virals tell more

Though they likely won't put to rest the rumor that he's secretly Robin, a new set of Dark Knight Rises viral documents have just been released that shed some new light on Joseph Gordon-Levitt's character, Gotham City cop John Blake. What kind of cop is he, and where might we run into him? Read on!

Below you'll find an evaluation form for Blake. Apparently he's a very good cop, but what's really interesting is his request for a transfer to the Narrows, the rough Gotham City neighborhood that played a central role in Batman Begins. Is that where we'll find him when the flick begins? Check out the full report below (click to enlarge).

Also on the viral radar today is this chain of emails from the staff of the Gotham Observer. They're discussing what news should be a priority, and in the process they spill a few juicy tidbits to us. The stage seems to be set for some kind of power struggle on the Wayne Enterprises board revolving around a guy named "John Daggett," who's apparently up to some very nasty stuff overseas and isn't too happy with the Observer for writing about it.

Then there's a reference to Marion Cotillard's character Miranda Tate, who's already apparently very influential even though she's just arrived on the board (maybe because she's really someone else?). Meanwhile, on another front, someone is burglarizing Gotham's penthouses, and whoever it is seems to be very good at her job.
