Is a certain character from Batman Begins in TDKR? Showbizspy.com was able to talk with Liam Neeson, who said that
I was on set for maybe an hour-and-a-half and the director didn’t tell me anything of what it’s about.” Personally I am thinking that this contributor for CBR is reading into Neeson’s interview way too much, and if you go to Showbizspy.com, the title is not “Liam Neeson is Back for DKR,” but instead “Neeson says DKR is a secret.”
So we probably are getting hyped up over nothing, but we will see. Personally I think that if Liam Neeson is going to be in Dark Knight Rises, Christopher Nolan would be keeping it under wraps and not let him talk or show anything of him in the trailers so that we will all be surprised. At this point in time I think that there will be flashbacks from Begins in Rises, but there will not be any new footage of Neeson.
