Well is he or is he not going to be in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. I asked Liam Neeson that question when I met him back at the press day for The Grey if he will make a cameo appearance as Ra’s al Ghul in the upcoming much anticipated final sequel, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, he wasn’t willing to say.
But in the credit character of the press note for WRATH OF THE TITANS, Comingsoon found out that Neeson will indeed reprise his role in TDKR, so there you have it, folks! Perhaps in flashbacks, who knows, but young Ra’s al Ghul, played by Josh Pence, won’t be the only one there, ’cause Neeson’s also back…
“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.”
