Okay… before you read any further, I will warn you that there is a HUGE spoiler for Christopher Nolan’s upcoming ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ below. So, do NOT continue down past this obnoxiously large spoiler sign if you don’t want the surprise ruined for you.
A couple of months ago, we confirmed that Liam Neeson was on the set of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’. At that time, it was based on just a comment from Neeson that he was on set and some people pointed out that he didn’t actually say that he had participated in any filming. Well now ComingSoon.net has been given some press materials for ‘Wrath of the Titans’ which comes out this week and also stars Neeson as the god Zeus.
Well… in that press release, there is a single line in Neeson’s bio that completely confirms that the actor is indeed returning in ‘Dark Knight Rises’. The line in question reads:
“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.”
So, if you’ve had any doubts that we’d see a return of Ra’s al Ghul, they’ve officially been put to rest. However, there’s still no word as to what Ra’s will be doing in the film. We do know that al Ghul’s daughter Talia will be in the film, so Neeson could appear in some sort of flashback sequence. Me? I’m hoping for an appearance by the Lazarus pit and the return of the immortal Demon’s Head Ra’s from the comics.
‘The Dark Knight Rises’ hits theaters July 20th and stars Christian Bale, Michael, Garly, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway , Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Marion Cotillard… and Liam Neeson!
