Though it’s not exactly an earth-shattering revelation of a scoop and it’s hardly something as head-scratching as the ‘they’re resurrecting Heath Ledger’s Joker via CGI’ rumour that surfaced a few months back, the following scoop does offer a bit of insight into the story of “Dark Knight Rises” and where Chris Nolan’s planning to take this, the third and final (?) chapter in the cash-cow[l].
Turn back now, spoilers ahead.
So, you want to know I take it?
Second and final chance.
Ok, here… we…. go
Drew at HitFix reported the following this morning :
According to sources, none other than Liam Neeson was on the set of “The Dark Knight Rises” on Monday, shooting a scene as Ra’s al Ghul.
Right now, I can’t confirm if the scene was meant to be a flashback or if it takes place in the current timeline of the films, but Neeson was there, and he was in front of the cameras. By Tuesday night, he was already in New York where he showed up for the premiere of the revamped “Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark.” I have no idea if he’s going to return to London for more “The Dark Knight Rises” shooting or not, but at the very least, we know he’s stepped in front of the camera.
What does this mean for the film’s storyline? We’ve been hearing for a while that Josh Pence had a role in the film as a young Ra’s al Ghul, and I think many people assumed that was for a flashback. It’s also widely believed that his daughter Talia, a major part of Bruce Wayne’s life in the comics, may show up in the film. But to actually have Neeson play the role again, especially if he’s playing a resurrected Ghul, is exciting news indeed, and suggests that Nolan may be playing around with the strange and the supernatural to some extent. It’s something that fans of the series have been speculating about for a while now, and more and more evidence seems to indicate that at the very least, Nolan’s going to play with the idea of resurrection. Whether it’s real or not is something I suspect we’ll have to see the film to discover
So what do you think? excited to possibly have Neeson back in the Bat-fold?
