Star Trek: Deep Space Nine‘s Alexander Siddig will be playing Ra’s al Ghul, the leader of the League of Shadows on Fox‘s Gotham.
“As Bruce [Wayne](David Mazouz) pulls the veil off the Court of Owls, he learns the man pulling the strings is in fact Ra’s al Ghul. A man shrouded in mystery — and the leader of the international criminal organization the League of Shadows — Ra’s al Ghul uses his cunning and deception to lay waste to his enemies, and will prove to be Bruce’s most dangerous adversary yet.
Ra’s al Ghul made his first comic book appearance in Batman #232 in June 1971.
Gotham will begin airing again on Fox on April 24. Expect to see Siddig “later in the season.”
