Ra's Al Ghul was recently revealed to be the big bad of Arrow's third season, and while we still don't know who will play the villain in The CW series, we do now know of at least one actor interested in taking on the role even if does just so happen to be someone who's already played him! Asked by MTV News whether he's been approached about making a return, Liam Neeson told them: "No, I haven’t, I haven’t at all," but if asked, "I would, in a heartbeat, if it came my way, yeah Very much so." Of course, the chances of the network being able to afford an actor of Neeson's calibre or Arrow linking to Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Trilogy in this way are pretty much slim to none, but it would still be interesting to see! Regardless, the A Walk Among the Tombstones star was happy to share some advice with whoever does end up landing the prize part. "They have to believe in their philosophy. Ra’s al Ghul absolutely believed what he was doing was ultimately saving civilization, and it was quite a good argument he comes up with. Throughout the ages this fraternity, that brought the plague to wipe out a section of mankind because it needed to be regenerated again. Very dangerous, but you have to believe it." What do you guys think?

Liam Neeson on television? That's something.

His portrayal of the character was actually really good in Batman Begins. He should be asked to return.

Nah. I'd rather have Taken 3.

I don't think he really understood the CW/WB part, haha, movie role I reckon...

Watching Batman Begins on HBO right now :)
MrCBM56 - 8/29/2014, 2:49 PM
@batz It's been on HBO a lot lately. I wish TDK would be too. They already play TDKR.
batz11 - 8/29/2014, 2:50 PM
Yeah, I wished TDK was on it too, never see it unless it's on TNT or FX or whatever cable channel broadcasts it (suck with commercials though) haha

That would actually be pretty great. Liam Neeson truly comprehends who Ra's Al Ghul is. He knows the character well and understands his motivations.

If they won't give BvS a connection to the TDK trilogy maybe Arrow can.

He was amazing in Batman Begins. This is still one of my favorite scenes of the trilogy:
