Two villains for Batman: Arkham Asylum 2 are leaked

When Batman: Arkham Asylum was announced, or rather teased, back in December one question immediate sprung in everyone’s mind.  The big question was “Which adversaries from Batman’s prolific Rogues Gallery would appear in the sequel?”  The first game had a decent roster but to some it was a bit tiny, especially given the scope of the game.  Besides a few enemies being hinted at in the teaser trailer, we now have some confirmations on some villains thanks to actors not shutting their yaps.

Those who love the tragic and icy figure that is Mr. Freeze should be pleased to hear that the character will indeed be in Arkham Asylum 2.  Speaking on Geekcastradio, actor Maurice LeMarche revealed that he’s playing Mr. Freeze in Arkham Asylum 2.  LeMarche didn’t detail his role in the game, but I’m sure the reps at WB Interactive are still none too pleased that LeMarche talked about the project.

Maurice wasn’t the only actor who must’ve skipped the NDA part of the contract. Actress Stana Katic (she’s on that TV show Castle) revealed via her Twitter that she’s voicing Talia al Ghul.  I guess someone told Stana “Uh, you weren’t supposed to reveal that,” as she promptly deleted her Twitter posts shortly after they were up.  For those not familiar with the Batman mythos, Talia is the daughter of Ra's al Ghul; one of Batman’s deadliest adversaries. In the comics Talia and Batman had a fling of sorts so I’m interested to see how that’s explored in the game.

So now we can add Mr. Freeze and Talia al Ghul to the list of foes appearing in Batman: Arkham Asylum 2. It’ll just be interesting to see in what capacity these characters appear in the game.  For all we know Mr.Freeze may not even be a boss, he could merely make an appearance via collectable audio recordings. I guess we will find out how Talia and Mr. Freeze are featured when E3 rolls around, since we’re bound to get at least a new trailer.
