Naturally, this news post contains a mild spoiler.
Warner has announced that Liam Neeson will feature in The Dark Knight Rises, taking on the role of the adult Ra's al Ghul. The news was released in the press notes for Wrath of the Titan’s, in which Neeson plays Zeus. It states, “Neeson next appears in Peter Berg’s actioner Battleship and he also will be seen in Christopher Nolan’s much-anticipated action thriller The Dark Knight Rises."
At this stage, it is unclear how long Neeson will be in the film for. He was seen on set for several hours, but it remains to be seen what hand his character will play in the film. Josh Pence will also portray the role of Ra's al Ghul, but as a much younger character. The Dark Knight rises will be released on July 20th; the countdown is well and truly on.
