These photos, posted at Comic Book Movie earlier today, are apparently from the set of “The Dark Knight Rises (After Mucho Curry)” in India.
This is what the site believes the pictures to be of (to me, looks like a hole Bruce Banner has taken a leak in) : “The Lazarus Pit is mythical vats of arcane chemicals in the DC comics universe. The most common user of the pit is Ra’s al Ghul. Ra’s al Ghul accidentally discovered the first Lazarus Pit as a cure for the dying son of a sultan he worked for. The Pit had a terrible side effect, however; it turned the Prince temporarily insane, leading to him killing the doctor’s wife. After being blamed for the murder, the man who would become Ra’s Al Ghul was buried in the desert. He was rescued by a tribe and a boy named Huew. After this he used the Lazarus Pit to save himself, and vowed to avenge his wife. The doctor gave himself the title Ra’s al Ghul – The Demon’s Head”.
Okay. Cool. But of course there’s been no mention of Liam Neeson reprising his role (from “Batman Begins”) as Ra’s al Ghul for the new film though. There is however confirmation that flashbacks of the character as a boy will be woven into the storyline. So….?
