Neeson confirmed for Dark Knight Rises?

March 29th, 2012 by Marc Comments

Irish actor to reprise role as Ra’s al Ghul in Nolan’s trilogy closer.
Liam Neeson WILL star in The Dark Knight Rises, it has been confirmed.
The Schindler’s List star, who played Ra’s al Ghul in Batman Begins, will, it seems, reprise his role as Batman’s nemesis.
Ahead of the release of Wrath of the Titans this weekend, Warner Bros. Pictures confirmed what we all suspected, in that the Northern Ireland-born actor will return to Christopher Nolan’s take on Batman.
Production notes by the studio for Titans said: “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.”
The Dark Knight Rises opens in cinemas in July and also stars Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
