The voice cast for Eidos’ much anticipated Batman: Arkham Asylum 2 has a collective case of the loose Twitter/Podcast lip. Following up yesterday’s news that Two-Face would be appearing in the sequel, which also happened to be revealed via a premature Twitter post, League of Comics (via 1UP) reports that Mr. Freeze and Talia al Ghul will also be appearing in the game.
Actor Maurice LaMarche, who has worked on pretty much every great cartoon of the past 20 years (The Simpsons, Futurama, Animaniacs, The Tick, The Critic, etc.) and actually did several voices in LucasArts’ classic Full Throttle to boot, revealed during a podcast for Geekcastradio that he was “about to go in and do Mr. Freeze for Arkham Asylum 2.” LaMarche went on to say that this time around Freeze is “actually a sympathetic character within the framework of the game.”
The other villain news came via actress Stana Katic (Castle) who posted on Twitter, “Just recorded a character voice on the next Batman video game. Never did that before…I’m voicing Talia al Ghul, the daughter of Ra al Ghul (played by Liam Neeson in ‘Batman Begins’).”
Arkham Asylum 2’s roster of bat killers is supposed to be epic, and these early revelations are certainly an indication of that. But there are still plenty more baddies to be revealed. So which villains would you like to see appear in the game?
