What would Comic-Con be without Batman? The Dark Knight’s next flying side-kick into the world of gaming will, of course, be making waves (of drool, most likely) on the show floor – but Entertainment Weekly beat the game’s panel to the punch. According to the outlet, Talia al Ghul – daughter of notorious villain Ra’s al Ghul and eventual mother to Batman’s child – will be making an appearance in the game. Better still, she’ll be voiced by Stana Katic, aka Kate Beckett on Nathan Fillion’s Detective Adventur– er, Castle. At any rate, it seems like every day brings a new “Guess who’s in Arkham City” announcement, so we can only imagine who’s next. Don’t worry, Calendar Man. We’re still pulling for you.
