Some casting details have emerged via THR who report that Josh Pence [The Social Network] is set to play a young "Ra's Al Ghul" in Christopher Nolan's Batman: The Dark Knight Rises. One would speculate that Pence would be involved in a storyline involved in the past THR further state: "The story line has also been kept locked up in the Batcave but Pence's casting throws more than a few crumbs to follow. Ra's Al Ghul was played by Liam Neeson in Batman Begins, thus paving the way for a possible return of the supposedly dead character. Also, while the studio never confirmed Cotillard's character, it has been rumored to be that of Talia Al Ghul, the daughter of Batman's mentor-turned-enemy. Sources say Pence will appear in scenes that take place 30 years prior to the present story." Pence basically played the body of Armie Hammer's twin brother in David Fincher's The Social Network, later they posted Hammer's face over Pences' so the guy deserves a chance to show that mug. Batman: The Dark Knight Rises stars Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Juno Temple, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and possibly Marion Cottilard. The movie hits theaters July 20th 2012.
