The funny thing about Dark Knight Rises rumors is that, much like Ra’s al Ghul, they never really die.
Take, for instance, the report in mid-June that Liam Neeson, who played the aforementioned antagonist in Batman Begins, was spotted in London shooting a cameo for the final film in Christopher Nolan’s trilogy. That’s the same Liam Neeson who, three months earlier, denied having any involvement in the movie.
Well, Neeson’s back in the spotlight, promoting his new action-thriller The Grey, and he’s now confirming, at least in part, those months-old rumors.
“I can tell you nothing about Dark Knight Rises, seriously,” the actor tells Showbiz Spy. “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.”
Well, there you have it. Sort of. It sounds more like Neeson was talking about a set visit rather than a cameo shoot. But we’ll all see what, if any, Neeson has in The Dark Knight Rises come July 20.
The film stars Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle, Tom Hardy as Bane, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake, Michael Caine as Alfred, Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox.
