Stana Katic Confirmed to Voice Talia al Ghul in Batman: Arkham City SuperCheats News
When the new editor here at Gaming Update came into the bullpen last month and we asked if we were going to be sending anyone to cover Comic Con he actually gave the question serious consideration, then decided it was not likely.
"You guys just want to go because it is Comic Con," he mused. "That would be more fun than work."
Now, if he had sent us to Comic Con -- and we would have gone too -- we would have been able to report first-hand our impressions of the Warner Bros. Interactive and DC Entertainment announcement that Stana Katic -- star of ABC's popular series Castle -- was picked to be the voice of the character of Talia al Ghul in Batman: Arkham City . OK, for the record, how cool is that? Very cool!
Stana Katic is most recognized for her role as NYPD Homicide Detective Kate Beckett (AKA Nikki Heat), who partners with writer Rick Castle (Nathan Fillion) to solve crimes.
"Talia is such a complex character and it was great to voice her in Batman: Arkham City," said Katic. "I was amazed at all the detail put into the project and it's great to see how excited the fans are about the game."
A Most Realistic Batman
Batman: Arkham City builds upon the intense, atmospheric foundation of Batman: Arkham Asylum , sending players soaring into Arkham City -- five times larger than the game world in Batman: Arkham Asylum -- and the new maximum security "home" for all of Gotham City's thugs, gangsters and insane criminal masterminds.
Set inside the heavily fortified walls of a sprawling district in the heart of Gotham City, this highly anticipated sequel introduces a brand-new story that draws together a new, all-star cast of classic characters and murderous villains from the Batman universe, as well as a vast range of new and enhanced gameplay features to deliver the ultimate experience as the Dark Knight.
The now-estranged daughter of the supervillain Ra's al Ghul, Talia is a love interest of Batman, and the mother of his son Damian Wayne, elements that should give the character lots of range in the next installment of only the best Batman game series ever.
Batman: Arkham City is based on DC Comics' core Batman license.
