It goes without saying that Liam Neeson has been in countless cult classics — from Star Wars to Taken over the course of his stellar acting career. However, fans are still clamoring to see the Hollywood icon in another comic book film project nearly 20 years after he starred in Batman Begins.

Apparently, some fans are toying with the idea of Neeson setting foot in Gotham once again, only his time around, it's a different city and universe from what he was used to. Well, as much as we hate to burst your bubbles, it doesn't look like the 70-year-old actor is interested in starring in another film featuring the caped crusader.

In a Men's Health feature, the Obi-Wan Kenobi star responded to a fan who asked whether or not he'd be down to join Matt Reeves' The Batman universe as one of Robert Pattinson's potential adversaries. Unsurprisingly, Neeson rejected the idea and reminded everyone that he was already a "villain" in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy.

Although Liam claims that Ra's al Ghul or at least his iteration of the character wasn't exactly a baddie contrary to popular belief. He said: "No, I've already done that in Batman Begins with Christian Bale. I was Ra's al Ghul. He wasn't really a bad guy. He was trying to reorganize the world as it needs to be organized."

I mean, Liam does raise a pretty valid reason but he didn't exactly say that he's no longer game to play a comic book character on either the small or big screen. Personally, I'd love to see him join the Marvel Cinematic Universe just so he completes the trifecta.

Meanwhile, key details about The Batman 2 are still being kept under wraps.
