MTV spoke with Liam Neeson recently about The Dark Knight Rises. Fans have speculated that Neeson may return in Nolan’s final Batman movie ever since we learned that The Dark Knight Rises brings the story “full circle”. In the interview, Neeson claims he doesn’t have a “f—ing clue” about The Dark Knight Rises’ story. Here’s a transcript for those of you who cannot view the video:
“You’re throwing me for a loop,” he told MTV’s Kevin P. Sullivan when asked about the upcoming comic book movie. “That’s right. I was in ‘Batman.’ I trained him,” he added in his best Ra’s voice.
Though his voice appears in the “Dark Knight Rises” teaser trailer, Neeson claimed that he doesn’t have “a f—ing clue what it’s about,” but that he’s “eager to see this one” when it hits theaters next summer.
“Chris Nolan’s made wonderful films, very rich, dark and complex, especially [‘The Dark Knight’],” said Neeson. “Of course, it was cloaked in tragedy,” he added, referring to the death of Heath Ledger.
What do you guys think? Will we see a surprise return from Liam Neeson in The Dark Knight Rises?
