According to Kotaku, “The Spirit” actress Stana Katic revealed on Twitter that she had recently “recorded a character voice on the next Batman video game,” confirming the character as Talia, daughter of Ra’s al Ghul. Katic later removed the tweets from her account.
Additionally, “Futurama” voice actor Maurice LaMarche told Geekcastradio (via Kotaku) that he’ll be playing Mister Freeze in the game.
“I’m about to go in and do Mr. Freeze for Arkham Asylum 2,” he said. “He’s out for blood right now because, err… I can’t tell you the situation, but he’s actually somewhat a sympathetic character within the framework of the game.”
Finally, at the C2E2 convention in Chicago this weekend, Batman himself spilled the beans on Two-Face. A fan lured voice actor Kevin Conroy into revealing that Harvey Dent would have a role in the second “Arkham Asylum” game, causing Conroy to laugh at his own mistake.
“There’s a very complicated cast,” he said according to Comic Book Resources. “A lot of villains are in it. I’ll just leave it at that!”
Conroy went on to compare the tone of the “Arkham Asylum” sequel to “Batman Beyond: The Return of the Joker,” a rather grim Batman tale.
“It’s really, really dark,” he said of the game. “It involves a lot of the villains and it goes to that area — it’s that dark.”
