Warner Bros. Television has announced that they have cast Game Of Thrones vet Alexander Siddig as Ra's al Ghul - leader of the League Of Assassins, and one of the The Dark Knight's most formidable foes since his debut back in 1971.
The Gotham take on the classic Batman villain will have a connection to another recent adversary. As Bruce (David Mazouz) pulls the veil off the Court of Owls, he finds Ra’s al Ghul is the enigmatic and powerful man pulling the strings. With his past shrouded in mystery, Ra’s al Ghul uses cunning and deception to lay waste to his foes. As the leader of an international criminal organization known as the League of Shadows, Ra’s al Ghul will prove himself to be Bruce’s most dangerous adversary yet.
This is the second version of Ra's to debut in the DC TV Universe. Previously, Matt Nable embodied the role on both Arrow and Legends Of Tomorrow respectively.
Siddig has also appeared on Peaky Blinders and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and should bring intelligence and strength to the recurring role. Gotham returns on April 24th at 8pm.
