Apparently Warner Bros. revealed that Liam Neeson will reprise his role as Ra’s al Ghul for the upcoming 3rd installment. You might all remember him getting ‘killed’ in the monorail scene by Batman in Batman Begins. Of course Ra’s al Ghul is supposed to be immortal in the comics, so this revelation wouldn’t be that big a surprise to fans. But Nolan’s portrayal of the Batman universe has been more ‘realistic’, so having a Lazarus Pit wouldn’t fit in with his style. So it will be interesting to see how Ra’s is reintroduced to the Batman universe in The Dark Knight Rises. There seems to be a lot of bad guys for this upcoming film, which should make it interesting.
