Could a big Batman villain be on his way to Titans? According to our friends over at That Hashtag Show, it looks like Titans might be casting Ra’s Al Ghul! THS revealed a new casting breakdown for an unnamed character whose character traits matches those of the Demon’s Head.
“Male, 40s-50s, Middle Eastern, Latin, or East Indian. Seeking a young Richard Attenborough type. Fearless, manipulative, with unparalleled intelligence. Recurring guest star, seeking recognizable faces only.”
Should this be Ra’s, then this will mark the third time he has been portrayed in live-action TV. Matt Nable portrayed him in the third season of Arrow, from Titans executive producer Greg Berlanti. In the recent two seasons of FOX’s Gotham, Alexander Siddig took on the iconic antagonist.
On the big screen, Liam Neeson played Ra’s in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy. Do you think this could be Ra’s Al Ghul? Sound off in the comments below and stay tuned for the latest on one of 2018’s most highly anticipated DC shows!
