Wait until you get a load of this. It looks like the sequel to the critically acclaimed Batman: Arkham Asylum will be going to a much darker place, if that is possible. I mean there wasn’t too much slapstick comedy in the first one. During the C2E2 comic convention in Chicago, legendary Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy was coerced into revealing some tidbits about Batman: Arkham Asylum 2 and what fans could expect from the game – including an appearance by the villain Two-Face.
Arkham Asylum 2 will also be “really, really dark” Controy said, comparing it to fan-favorite animated film Return of the Joker. He also had this to say:
“There’s a very complicated cast. A lot of villains are in it. I’ll just leave it at that! It involves a lot of the villains and it goes to that area — it’s that dark.”
Also, any semblance of secrecy about other characters to be featured in the game has been tarnished further. Actor Maurice LaMarche revealed in an interview that he was doing Mr. Freeze for the game:
“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.”
The next to crack was actor Stana Katic, who posted her character assignment on Twitter, where secrets always stay secret. She soon deleted the message but the quote had already been taken:
“For those who were asking: I’m voicing Talia al Ghul, the daughter of Ra al Ghul (played by Liam Neeson in Batman Begins).”
What do you think of what’s been reported about the upcoming sequel?
Batman Arkham Asylum 2 is set for release some time in 2011.
