Traditionally a Batman adversary, Ra’s al Ghul (played by Matt Nable) took on Oliver Queen as the main villain of Arrow‘s third season. The season ended with Ra’s being killed, and Malcolm Merlyn takes his place as Heir to the Demon. Fans have speculated whether or not this Ra’s was dead for good. Well, one way or another, we will be seeing him again soon.
According to ComicBook.com, Nable is set to return as Ra’s al Ghul on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, which premieres next month. He will appear in the midseason show’s ninth episode.
It is unknown whether or not Ra’s is being resurrected from his death on Arrow, or if his appearance will be linked to time travel. I’m going to guess and say that it’s the latter, as Legends of Tomorrow deals heavily with time travel. Also, a slew of supporting characters from Arrow and The Flash will be appearing on this show, so having Ra’s show up is not so shocking.
Stay tuned for more news as we have it. DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is set to premiere January 21st at 8 PM on The CW.
