BATMAN BEGINS
Another mentor role, but this one is a bit more twisted. Liam Neeson visits the despondent young Bruce Wayne as Henri Ducard, emissary to the League of Shadows. He eventually teaches the Caped Crusader to be a ninja, and then a terrorist. When Wayne fights back, he learns that Ducard is merely the alter ego of the League’s founder, Ra’s Al Ghul. Neeson’s essentially doing a proud-warrior shtick, which is interesting because as he shifts to full-on villainy, that shtick remains. Ra’s is one of Batman’s greatest foes, but he only really makes a physical appearance in Batman Begins, robbing us of an entire series of Neeson’s Ra’s taunting Batman by suggesting he is eternal, his methods supernatural.
