Liam Neeson is NOT Ra’s Al Ghul in Batman

In a bit of a blunder, Variety reported yesterday that Liam Neeson was playing the villain, Ra’s Al Ghul, in Christopher Nolan’s Batman.

The trade has now issued a correction, saying that Neeson instead is playing Henri Ducard, mentor to Bruce Wayne in the Warner Bros. film.

This brings us back to square one with the villains. All we know is that Cillian Murphy is a villain in the film, but the studio has not disclosed who.
