Want a potential spoiler for The Dark Knight Rises? Warning: Spoiler!

06.15.2011by:

Filming just started on THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, and some holes might already be getting poked in the shroud of secrecy that Christopher Nolan has kept over the anticipated sequel.

 

POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD!

 

SERIOUSLY!

 

Hitfix is reporting (and Variety is verifying) that actor Liam Neeson has already shot scenes for the movie, reprising his role as BATMAN BEGINS villain Ra's al Ghul.

For those who have followed (and hypothesized about) every minuscule detail and rumor, this could make sense, especially considering the character's comic origins. There were spy photos of what may have been the Larazus Pits, the comics' mystical fluid pools that restore and prolong life. Many have guessed that Miranda Tate, the announced character of actress Marion Cotillard, is a smokescreen for Ra's al Ghul's vengeful daughter Talia Head. And THE SOCIAL NETWORK actor Josh Pence (the second Winklevoss twin, whose face was digitally replaced by Armie Hammer's) has reportedly been cast for flashbacks as the younger version of the BEGINS baddie. Hmmm...

The movie also features Gary Oldman, Michael Caine, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Morgan Freeman, Matthew Modine, Nestor Carbonell, Brett Cullen, Juno Temple, and of course Christian Bale in the cowl.

Extra Tidbit: Speculate away!

Why does everyone assume Josh Pence is playing Ra's in a flashback? Ummmm....doesn't a Lazarus Pit return you to youth and health?

no offense joblo.com

But all us fans knew this for-FUCKING-ever ago! Was that REALLY such a gigantic, colossal spoiler that the headline had to just scream "OMG! OMG! I GOT SECRET DARK KNIGHT 3 NEWS! TEE-HEE!"

Only use that headline when you've got cam footage of Tom Hardy holding Christian Bale (or his stuntman) above his head ready to break the bat.

I wonder what they're planning with the Joker...replace Ledger's face digitally (TRON anyone?) or forgetting him altogether? For obvious reasons he won't be a major player I guess, but I'm still wondering.

I'm guessing Bane will be another student of Ras Al Ghul, and we'll see his tutelage over the course of decades. From childhood where we see younger Ras take him under his wing, to older Bane where we see Liam Neeson before his death in Begins. Bane will probably be seeking revenge on Bruce for Ras's death.

I would like this to be true, but I doubt it. Nolan doesn’t want fantasy stuff in the Batman films. I am very interested on how he will make Bane “realistic”. But here’s a thought - maybe after 2 movies we can see a real bat-cave and bat-mobile – those are probably more important Batman elements than the Lazarus Pit. I don’t think this will be a Spiderman 3 though; it will be as Begins and DK – a solid movie with a realistic approach to a comic book. I don’t think it will be better than DK

I don’t think it will be better than DK though, as the Joker is a very interesting character, more so than Catwoman or Bane – but I’m sure this movie will be very exciting. Ill be seeing it first day – duh.

Alon Abutbul has also been cast as a 'Mad Scientist' - possible source of Venom and/or Lazarus Pits?

Gary Oldman??

I'm just thrilled to hear that Gary Oldman is in it. I'll give any movie he is in a chance. So far the series has been great. As surprised as I am that they are bringing Ra's Ghul back I am still hoping for a movie as great as the others.

Nice.

I'm hoping for a Lazarus Pit resurrection. Only makes sense.

I wonder if they'll have the Sandman be his or Bruce's parents real killer in the flashbacks? Yeah, this film won't be Spider-Man 3...

Check out Imdb for Josh Pence, not Spence and you will that is he playing young Al Ghul. Pretty cool.

Probably just a flashback. Still cool he's in it, though.

Would be awesome if true. Nolan isn't a stranger in bringing sci-fi/fantasy elements into otherwise realistic films. To be honest, Batman NEEDS these elements. They are a vital part of his mythology.

I agree that it would be a great bookend for the trilogy, which is what Nolan seems to be going with. My only concern is that it will introduce supernatural aspects so far absent from these films.

This would be perfect. I always felt that Ras' face was way too peaceful before he died

Probably true...would be a good idea to bookend the trilogy with Neeson.
