Keeping with the wishes of Drew McWeeny over at HitFix, we didn't put the name in the headline or the picture in the image above, but obviously, this story has spoilers so if you don't want to know stop reading now and don't cry to us about it later.

Anyway, according to sources that have reached out to HitFix, a major character from "Batman Begins" has quietly hit the set of Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises" which if true, will certainly be another strong thread in tying up the trilogy as a whole.

Liam Neeson, who just a few months ago said he had not been asked to come back for the third installment, has apparently been spotted shooting scenes for "The Dark Knight Rises" in London. As you might remember, Josh Pence signed on to play a young Ra's Al-Ghul in flashback scenes though right now, it's not certain how Neeson will fit into the story, details of which are being kept close to the chest. Is Neeson showing up in a different flashback with scenes circa "Batman Begins"? Has Ra's Al Ghul been resurrected? Has he started a new career in craft services? Who knows. But it's another interesting morsel from a film that will work hard to keep the surprises --- well, surprising. Warner Bros. had no comment when asked by the site about what they heard and McWeeny tends to have good intel, so we're inclined to believe this has some truth sauce behind it.

All this also makes us wonder if Cillian Murphy's Scarecrow will also pop up. We hope so if only to get him in all three films. His character adds an interesting texture as sort of a B-level villain, plus he's pretty damn great in the part and his moments in "The Dark Knight" were fun. Shooting continues and the film hits on July 20, 2012.
