Talia Al Ghul, Mister Freeze Featured In Arkham Asylum 2?

When it comes to superhero entertainment, film or game, the fans usually want to know about the villains. Very often, the villains make the product, no?

Well, we know all about Batman: Arkham Asylum, where the freaky Joker took center-stage due in large part to some excellent voice acting on the part of Mark Hamill. And the question now is, "what villains will be featured in the upcoming sequel?" Nothing is official just yet, but according to Kotaku citing some Twitter updates from a couple voice actors, both Mr. Freeze and Talia al Ghul (daughter of Ras al Ghul, presumably) will be in the game. Stana Katic, star of ABC's "Castle" tweeted on Friday that she "just recorded a character voice on the next Batman video game," and the character's name is Talia al Ghul. Katic took down the updates but not quickly enough, obviously. Then, Maurice LeMarche, known for the voice of Kif Kroker in the TV series "Futurama," told Geekcastradio that he'll be Mr. Freeze in "Arkham Asylum 2." LeMarche even says "he's actually somewhat a sympathetic character within the framework of the game."

Sure, we'll go with those two villains. They sound like great fits and of course, the sequel is greatly anticipated by fans of last year's awesome title. We'll let you know if and when Rocksteady decides to confirm the details.

I loved Futurams, and especially that cursing, drinking, smoking, womanizing robot, Bender....
"Bite my shiny metal a$$"

Oh, and I'm glad to hear B:AA2 is a coming too.

Kif is cool, but I was really hoping for Schwarzenegger though. </sarcasm>

I have no idea who Talia Al Ghul is but it's comic based so I'll just assume she's hot.

What they did in the first Batman with the villains by making them combat oriented puzzles was fantastic. If they keep that up with part two and use the vast array of Batman's enemies, there's no limit to what they can do. Thanks to the first game, we now know it's in the right hands.

Kif is fine and good, but I would have preferred Bender Bending Rodriguez's voice talent. Imagine seeing Mr. Freeze turn around, look at you and start talking with Bender's voice! What a riot!

Hilarious show, can't wait for more!

Ra'as Al Ghul: Arabic for "head of the demon".
Thalia Al Ghul: Talia (Arabic for Natalie, or Natalia, not sure of meaning) of the Demon.

I should really play B:AA someday. That and inFamous are on my "too play" list.

Very psyced for B:AA2. I was hoping that Ra's Al Ghul will be in the game. Remember seeing his toe-tag in the morgue? Fun stuff.

I wouldn't have mind if the guy that did the voice of Mr. Freeze in Batman:TAS. Remember the episode 'Heart of Ice"? One of my top ten episodes for B:TAS.

bar alan wake, crysis 2 and RAGE this is my most anticipated title for the year.
if this is half as good as batman AA than were really in for a treat!
i just hope they put a little more depth into the story line this time, batman AAs storyline was a little bland, thin, and a little too cliche for my liking.

The first one was fun. I hope they soften up the textures in the next one. Everyone looked like wax dolls in the first one.

It's that strange phenomenon this generation of people looking like they are made of wet plastic and in some cases wet clay.

Batman: AA 2 will be awesome if it's based in Gotham City and away from Arkham Asylum. The first game was great. It hinted at so many awesome things one can anticipate for the sequels to come. Batmobile, Batwing, all the villians. It was fun to read everyone's bio.

More boss fights would be sweet.
