Not that anything is currently in the works, but Neeson, in a recent video interview with MTV, said he’d be willing to reprise the role. If he were asked to, that is.

“No, I haven’t [been asked], I haven’t at all. I would [do it], in a heartbeat, if it came my way, yeah. Very much so.”

When asked of he had any advice for the actor who does wind up playing Ra’s, Neeson offered up the following…

“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.”

So what do you all think? Would you like to see Neeson resume the role on the small screen or do you want a fresh face to take on the part? IGN Logo
