You Can Stop Arguing Now – Liam Neeson Is Absolutely, Positively, Definitely In The Dark Knight Rises
I thought this debate was over a few months ago after actor Liam Neeson talked to the press about being on the set of Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. Apparently I was wrong. About the arguing, not about the fact that Neeson is actually in the film. Which he 100% is. How do we know for sure? Read on!
Rumors had floated around for a while that Neeson had been on the set of TDKR. There was no confirmation on that until Neeson himself confirmed it to the press in January.
“I can tell you nothing about Dark Knight Rises, seriously,” he said while discussing reprising his role as Batman’s enemy, Ra’s al Ghul in TDKR. “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.”
Now, I took that as confirmation but others argued that since he didn’t actually say he was filming, he could have just been visiting the set. But I held true to my beliefs in the face of great adversity and behold! I was proven correct!
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.”
Nolan had already cast young Ra’s in actor Josh Pence but fans were hoping/wishing Neeson would be brought back. Of course we still don’t know in exactly what capacity that will be (flashbacks, a Lazarus Pit resurrection, etc) but at least we know now for sure that he’s in the film.
Personally, I’m hoping Nolan says “screw it” to the Batman realism and does some sort of resurrection. It’s too cool not to. And while we’re at it, Susana and myself would greatly appreciate another TDKR trailer any day now. Can we make that happen?
