"I know a lot of people think it's [guest star] Mark Hamill, but can Luke Skywalker do this?" executive producer Erica Messer jokes to TVGuide.com. Hamill — who, lest we forget, voices The Joker on the animated Batman series ...

Yesterday, we brought you an incredibly rad 5-minute trailer for Batman: Arkham Origins, which showcased an action-packed fight between Batman and Deathstroke. Today, we bring you a few new screenshots from the game, one of which features our first look at The Joker. Unfortunately, he's no longer voiced by Mark Hamill. Kevin Conroy won't be back either, but he's been working on the next Arkham game being developed.
The images come from Hero Complex, and there were a couple other new details revealed about the game. Senior producer on the game, Ben Mattes, talked to them about the game explaining that...
...they follow the same core mechanics. You digitally re-create the crime scene, you identify the clues, you scan in the clues, which allows your cowl and bat computer to digitally recreate the events as they took place. You scrub through those events in order to find the key piece of information, »

Before the doors of the Irving Convention Center even opened on Saturday, it was very evident that Dallas Comic-Con is no longer just a local Texas event. Just by reading the convention's Facebook page, you could see people sharing their stories of how far they had traveled to meet their favorite celebrities. Many were from out of state or distant corners of the Lone Star State.
Let's just get the negative out of the way so we can get to the good points. Yes, there were a few cancellations. One was felt more than the others. The first day of the event, Nathan Fillion's representatives contacted Comic-Con management and told them the actor wouldn't be attending because of health reasons.
Since the Comic-Con personnel can't just say it out of tact and professional reason, let me do the talking for them. Anyone who drives or flies thousands of miles »

I remember hearing last month that Kevin Conroy, the iconic voice of Batman, wouldn't be back for Batman: Arkham Origins. The rumor was that Warner Bros. wanted a younger actor for the game. Well, those rumors are wrong because Conroy himself confirmed at Dallas Comic Con this past weekend that he will be reprising the role in the highly anticipated game! He couldn’t talk much about the game, but he said that he's been working on it for the past nine or ten months, that it’s going to be amazing, and that is has a huge cast and a big story.
You can watch the panel with Conroy below, and you can also check out the recently released teaser trailer for the game here. I'm so happy to hear that he'll be back. It's always hard to hear someone else »

Update: Turns out that Kevin Conroy's comments at yesterday's Dallas Comic-Con have been taken out of context by several media outlets (ourselves included) as it would appear that the fan favourite won't be voicing The Dark Knight after all.
However, the point still remains that Conroy said he was working on "the next Arkham game" - does he know something we don't? The new trailer for Batman: Arkham Origins was released earlier which you can check out below:
Batman: Arkham Origins is set for release this October for Xbox 360 and PS3. »

I adore Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City is a pretty good follow-up, but those were both developed by Rocksteady. The franchise has now moved into the hands of WB Games Montreal, so there's some uncertainty. Furthermore, longtime Batman voice Kevin Conroy was replaced Roger Craig Smith with Troy Baker voicing The Joker instead of Mark Hamill. Last week, we saw Batman fighting Deathstroke in a non-gameplay trailer for the prequel, Batman: Arkham Origins. The game takes place in an even larger open world Gotham in which eight of the world’s deadliest assassins gather on Christmas Eve under direct orders from Black Mask to kill Batman. A full trailer has now been released, and while it still doesn't show any gameplay, it does show off a neat fight scene in addition to Batman villains Black Mask and presumably Deadshot. WB Games has also announced that »

While the new trailer is full of well-choreographed action, it looks like WB Montreal might not have thought out a minor-major character moment about the Dcu's most staunch no-killing vigilante.
Plus, new screens and details (Joker: confirmed) from this full trailer tease out more about the cast of characters in the Dcu prequel.
Watch: Batman: Arkham Origins Launch Trailer
The problematic moment comes pretty early on in the trailer, as Batman stalks a group of masked thieves through a darkened warehouse. After dispatching the first two, he comes across the third, grabbing him by the throat and giving a noticeable, sharp squeeze before the crook goes down. "Did Batman just break that guy's neck," I wondered. Then he discovers the contents of their haul: a short-time bomb, which leads him to fling himself through a window before it explodes in trap set by Deathstroke.
Both are kind of weird »

Ka-pow! Like a bludgeoning thump to the kisser, Kevin Conroy silenced industry rumours at the Dallas Comic-Con by confirming that he will indeed voice act for the upcoming prequel Batman: Arkham Origins. However, in a twist to the recent saga, Warner Bros. have confirmed Roger Craig Smith as Gotham’s caped crusader – which unmasks a rather pressing question: just how will Kevin Conroy feature in the studio’s upcoming game?
In taking up the Bat-mantle in the series’ third instalment, Craig Smith will only bolster his already impressive résumé – which includes Ezio and Chris Redfield of Assassin’s Creed and Resident Evil. With Craig Smith and Conroy now confirmed to be working alongside one another, perhaps the game will feature some form of non-linear narrative to encompass both voice actors? Who knows, but it opens some interesting avenues for the developing studio to extrapolate.
One thing we knew for a while, »

Courtesy of IGN, we also have some new game details. Roger Craig Smith, who has voiced Ezio from Assassin's Creed and Chris Redfield from Resident Evil will be voicing Batman, Not Kevin Conroy. Either, the game will feature flashbacks and we'll have an older and younger Bruce Wayne in the game and therefore both Conroy and Smith or Conroy is actually working on RockSteady's Silver Age Justice League video game, not Origins. The Joker is also confirmed to appear in the game but he's also voiced by a different actor, Troy Baker. Other villains confirmed are Bane, Deadshot, Anarky, Black Mask, and of course Deathstroke. The box art also features Killer Croc and Penguin. Related Content: Video Games: MultiPlayer Set For Batman: Arkham Origins? Video Games: Rocksteady's Batman Arkham City Prequel To Drop 3Q 2013?

Batman: Arkham Origins
The news contradicts reports earlier this year that the actor would not be reprising his role. Meanwhile, previously unannounced Deathstroke Dlc has beem revealed and will be accessible for those pre-ordering the game according to Amazon.
Finally, the first full trailer for the game has finally gone online and can be seen below. [Source: Gamespot

Among Batman’s illustrious rogues gallery, one villain who has yet to appear in a live action film is the Joker’s girlfriend and sidekick, Harley Quinn. Harley is notable for not originating in the comics but in Batman: The Animated Series. She first appeared in the 1992 episode “Joker’s Favor.”
Her origin story was then told in comic book form in the story Mad Love, written by Paul Dini and drawn by Bruce Timm, two of the animated series’ producers. We learn that Harley was formally a Arkham Asylum psychiatrist named Harleen Quinzel who fell in love with the Joker and eventually became his partner in crime. While some may feel Harley is too goofy a character to work in a serious Batman film I feel see is one of the most psychologically interesting characters in the Batman mythology.
All you have to do is read Mad Love and »

Pretty much at the start of the video above from this weekened's Dallas Comic Con, longtime animated and video game Dcu voice actor Kevin Conroy revealed that he'd spent the last "9-10 months" working on the next "Arkham" game.
While Conroy doesn't call out WB Montreal's "Batman: Arkham Origins," he says that the title he's been working on has already been announced, and that the reveal of the voice cast was strictly down to the studio attempting to control the flow of information about the project. If that's the case, then when a WB Montreal rep was speaking with a South African publication about the prequel, they were either misquoted or outright lying about Conroy's involvement in the game, saying that with a younger Batman taking center stage in "Origins," they wanted to go in another direction.
Conroy's been voicing the Dark Knight in some form or other for over 20 years now, »

Last month, many Batman fans were very disappointed when Nag Magazine reported that Warner Bros. wanted a younger actor for Batman: Arkham Origins, and that Kevin Conroy would not be returning. Well, for those of you who were upset... Nag Magazine was wrong! At Dallas Comic Con this weekend, Kevin Conroy appeared and confirmed that he will voice Batman in Batman: Arkham Origins. Conroy said he's been working on the game for the past nine or ten months. Though he couldn’t talk much about the game, he said that it’s amazing with a huge cast and big story. Check out the video, where Batman: Arkham Origins is the first thing Conroy talks about. What do you think about this announcement? »
Remember a few weeks ago when rumors began to circulate that voice actor Kevin Conroy would not be returning to voice Batman in the upcoming prequel video game Batman: Arkham Origins ? That was wrong. Conroy confirmed this weekend at Dallas Comic-Con that he will return as the dark knight detective in the game but has simply been under an Nda for the past few months (via Batman-News ). With Conroy officially onboard for the game, does this change your perception? Are you more excited to take on Batman's early years? Sound off below! In other "Arkham Origins" news, we broke this morning that Deathstroke will be a playable character! Developed by Warner Bros. Games Montreal, Batman: Arkham Origins features an expanded Gotham City and introduces an »
This story has been updated, as Warner Bros. themselves have released a statement confirming that someone else is in fact providing the voice of Batman in Arkham Origins. So which game is Conroy referring too? Some more information has been provided inside.
[Update: Well this just kind of sucks. We were so excited to report yesterday that Kevin Conroy would be back to voice Batman in Arkham Origins, but apparently that's not the case. A WB spokesperson told IGN, "Roger Craig Smith is confirmed as the voice of Batman and Troy Baker is confirmed as the voice of The Joker in Batman: Arkham Origins."
So what in the Hell was Conroy talking about then? He makes it clear he's working on the next Arkham game, but also stated an Nda didn't let him name it specifically. Could this be the next-gen Arkham game that Rocksteady is rumored to be working on? Or, will Conroy provide the voice of an older Batman in Origins, perhaps telling the story of the game via flashback? No telling at this point and chances are WB isn't going to be sharing that information any time soon. The original story is below.]

Here's your first look at the highly anticipated video game Batman: Arkham Origins! It features an incredible looking cinematic sequence of Batman fighting Deathstroke. These Batman games have been so awesome, and I'm really excited to get my hands on this one. I have no doubt it's going to be just as awesome as the first two games.
Developed by WB Games Montréal, Batman: Arkham Origins features an expanded Gotham City and introduces an original prequel storyline set several years before the events of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City, the first two critically acclaimed games of the franchise. Taking place before the rise of Gotham City’s most dangerous criminals, the game showcases a young and unrefined Batman as he faces a defining moment in his early career as a crime fighter that sets his path to becoming the Dark Knight.

Gary Collinson reviews G.I. Joe: Special Missions #3....
"Scarlett, Mainframe, and the Special Missions team are seeing their first operation fall apart as the weather and overwhelming odds thwart them at every turn. Things aren't any easier for the Baroness as she faces a mutiny from the crew of scurvy dogs she hired to recover Cobra's loot off the ocean floor. And now Serpentor has taken an interest and that spells mayhem for everyone!"
If you've read my review of the previous issue, you'll know I was disappointed by G.I. Joe: Special Missions #2. After a getting the series off to a promising enough start, Sm #2 offered little more than filler, with some ridiculous plotting and inconsistent artwork making for a wholly forgettable issue which pretty much killed any momentum built up in issue #1. Nevertheless, with Special Missions #3, writer Chuck Dixon just about manages to get things back on track, »

It's amazing the things you discover reflecting on the works of one artist during a specific period of time in the publishing history of a comic book. Growing up, I read Batman comics from all eras of the Dark Knight's long career. I remember checking out this monstrous hardcover book from my elementary school library that featured reprints of Batman comics from the 1930s all the way through the 1970s.
One of the comic book covers that stood out in my young mind at the time and stayed with me as one of my favorites was by an artist I now in my old age have come to respect and hold dear to my heart named Neal Adams. My eight-year-old self would have never guessed that at age 40 I would be reading Batman Illustrated by Neal Adams Volume 2 and see that cover again.
The cover was for Batman Issue #227 from »
