The rumor mill is churning and, this time, we're hearing that actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt could assume the role of Batman when DC Entertainment brings Justice League to theaters in 2015. I can't think of a better idea.

Here's why: Gordon-Levitt's character fades off the screen in The Dark Knight Rises in a way that strongly suggests he'll don Batman's cape and cowl in future films. Adding him to the Justice League cast now would allow time for a cameo in Zack Snyder's Superman reboot, Man of Steel, when it debuts next summer. Which, frankly, is precisely what Time Warner (NYSE: TWX  ) needs.

Just as Samuel L. Jackson introduced audiences to the character of Nick Fury in the closing moments of 2008's Iron Man -- a small set-up leading to a much larger (and more profitable) world of Marvel's The Avengers -- Gordon-Levitt's cameo could build excitement as it foreshadows the team-up to come. Find out more in the video below.

It's easy to forget that Walt Disney is more than just the House of the Mouse. True, Disney amusement parks around the world hosted more than 121 million guests in 2011. But from its vast catalog of characters, to its monster collection of media networks, much of Disney's allure for investors lies in its diversity, and the Motley Fool's new premium research report lays out the case for investing in Disney today. This report includes the key items investors must watch, as well as the opportunities and threats the company faces going forward.
