Liam Neeson has confirmed to the press for the first time that he was on the set of The Dark Knight Rises.
Speaking to ShowbizSpy, the actor said;
“I can tell you nothing about Dark Knight Rises, seriously,” Neeson told ShowbizSpy. “I was on set for maybe an hour-and-a-half and the director didn’t tell me anything of what it’s about. So, I’m being very honest when I say I have no idea what’s going to happen.”
Of course we’ve all known this since the summer when Neeson was spotted with director Christopher Nolan on the set but what Neeson has refused to confirm is whether he filmed a scene or not. The answer though is 99.9999% likely that he indeed did and that Liam Neeson’s Ra’s Al Ghul will be making an appearance in the new film.
We already know that Ra’s is in the new movie. Josh Pence, the actor whose face was digitalised over as Armie Hammer’s for one of the Winklevoss Twins in The Social Network, is portraying him. Or his face is being digitalised out again for a young Liam Neeson, who knows? But Ra’s is in the movie, that we know for sure.
Whether Ra’s post-Batman Begins turns up surviving his train crash is another question entirely and one we probably won’t know for sure until The Dark Knight Rises hits cinemas July 20th, 2012.
