Batman voice actor: Arkham Asylum 2 to be “really dark,” will include Two-Face

Tuesday, 20th April 2010 03:17 GMT By Nathan Grayson


Afraid Rocksteady’s gonna pull a fast one on us with Arkham Asylum 2 and replace Batman and his rogue’s gallery with Adam West and his famously kooky bat-band of bat-villains and bat-gadgets?

Well don’t be. According to Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy, Arkham Asylum 2′s going to be so dark that you might have to readjust the brightness on your TV to see it. Well, ok, not really, but you get what we mean.

“It’s really, really dark,” Conroy said during a panel at the Chicago Comics & Entertainment Expo. “It involves a lot of the villains and it goes to that area – it’s that dark.”

He also compared the game’s tone to Batman: The Return of the Joker, which got so many con-goers quivering with anticipation that it registered as a seismic event.

In addition, Conroy managed to blurt that Two-Face and his ugly mug will be featured in Arkham Asylum 2.

“There’s a very complicated cast. A lot of villains are in it. I’ll just leave it at that!” he backpeddled.

Maybe it would’ve been better to let Adam West do the talking after all.

We kid. Mostly. More through the link.

Thanks, IGN.

    ^ Adverts? What is this sick filth?

    Also, Return of the Joker was awesome, well except for the censoring, but hey. That’s life now-a-days.

    expect cat woman and penguin as well, if they’re trying to out do/match the first games roster of badies, then who are the other main baddies…

    and considering its an already established Gotham where bats has already put away most of these baddies

    i expect cat women…and i expect a history ;)

    maybe the penguin will want to be the mayor of the new criminal Gotham

    Apparently Mr Freeze, Tlaia al ghul are also in it. I hope they dont put to many baddies in it though.
    I have faith in you though Rocksteady and they should take inspiration from Mgs and Gow when designing the boss battles.

    cool, Mr freeze as a sympathetic character? well all he cares about is keeping his wife frozen, maybe he’ll need batmans help

    i think Ra al Ghul will be dead, they wont have him and his daughter in the game…actually doesn’t Ra al Ghul appear in the database thingy in the first game, was he dead?

    Bruce wayne and Tlaia al ghul are love interests in the comics, but she is a baddy, avenging her father/carrying on his work stuff like that

    he had a body? i can’t remember was it in the libary showcase

    I think Tlaia al ghul will be a NEW baddy that batman doesn’t already know about, as for everyone else he will.

    do you think they will be in contact with the batman film people, in case they accidentally do the same story, as Tlaia al ghul could turn up in the next movie

    oh right. i remember seeing cat womans claws and penguins umbrella so we know those guys are established baddies already.

    I’m interested in the fun they’ll have with clayface :)

    There is so much you could do with Clayface, im thinking this is going to be the game version of No mans land so far.

    Whats also proper awesome is that they take there own spin on character design, if they are going darker then expect some really evil looking baddies

    also, whos going to bring the horror element to this one now that the scarecrows been eaten

    i hope they make two face proper insane, done right, the unpredictability of two face could make for an awesome story changing drastically on the flip of a coin

    i’d love it for him to flip a coin and kill robin in the first ten minutes of the game BOOM

    Batman: AA was my favorite game of 2009, i can’t wait for this one. I really don’t believe for a second that it’s coming this year, and neither does it need to be. Let them take their time and we’ll get another incredibly awesome game.
