Ra's Al Ghul by MikeMahle Ra's Al Ghul by MikeMahle
OK so I have a burning question that maybe someone can answer in regards to the old demon's head here. In TAS his name is pronounced (Ray-shh) Al Ghul, but in Nolan's trilogy he's pronounced (Ra-s). Anyone know what the correct pronunciation is? I prefer TAS version personally.

Enjoy.

It think Rayzh is right, as that pronunciation was used in "Arkham City" and "Son of Batman"

lol ive always pronounced it from how i remembered watching TAS. it just gives him more of a feel of being a mastermind himself.

I think the old Who's Who had the pronunciation as Rayshh.

That's how I always thought it was pronounced. Always drives me crazy in Batman Begins when they mispronounce his name.

I know. I was always a stickler nerd like that. I made DAMN sure I knew how to say Mxyzptlk. My wife rolled her eyes when we were watching Big Bang Theory. Sheldon said "Mixelplick" which is how Superfriends said it. It's "Mix-Yez-Pit-Lik".

Like I said, "nerd"! :)

They even refer to it in one of the Batman Beyond episodes "Out of the Past" ^_^

I go with the animated series personally because I like how it sounds and I liked the series far better than the movie, but that's just me.
