Liam Neeson's rumoured role in 'The Dark Knight Rises' has been confirmed.

The 59-year-old actor will reprise his part of Ra's al Ghul for the forthcoming movie, despite his character being killed off in 2005's 'Batman Begins', with the news revealed in Warner Bros' production notes for his latest film 'Wrath of the Titans'.

The press note read: ''Neeson next appears in Peter Berg's action flick 'Battleship', and he also will be seen in Christopher Nolan's much-anticipated action thriller 'The Dark Knight Rises'''.

The confirmation comes amid speculation Liam would star as Ra's al Ghul in flashback scenes after he was previously spotted on set dressed as the character.

However, Liam insists he is only going to have a ''cameo'' appearance in the motion picture.

When asked if he is appearing in 'The Dark Knight Rises', he told CNN: ''I think so. I have no idea what the story is about. Nothing. Nothing. Seriously, I'm not sure if I'm still in it. It's a cameo - let's put it that way - if it still survives.''

Josh Spence will play the younger version of Liam's alter-ego in the movie, with Christian Bale reprising his role as Batman, Tom Hardy as Bane and Anne Hathaway playing Selina Kyle.
