The League of Shadows was featured in the first installment of the film, where it was led by Ra's al Ghul, who pretended to be Henri Ducard, a mentor to Bruce Wayne.
Meanwhile, Bane (Tom Hardy) will be Talia's "muscle" and "possible love interest," rumored star, Joseph Gordon-Levitt will appear as another villanous character connected to the organization, and Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) will ultimately choose the side of good and fight with the caped crusader.
