According to the Hollywood Reporter, Josh Pence (The Social Network) has been cast as a young Ra’s al Ghul in the upcoming Dark Knight Rises.  For those wondering why Liam Neeson isn’t reprising the role, it’s because… well… he’s a bit too old to play a young Ra’s.  Pence will play the big bad that vexed Batman in Batman Begins in a series of flashbacks that occur during the movie.

This may throw a wrench in the works for those who think they have the story nailed down as The Long Halloween doesn’t feature the villain at all in the book.
