All-star cast revealed for Batman videogame
Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Michael Caine and more add their talent to EA's game-of-the-movie.
An all-star cast has been revealed for the forthcoming Batman Begins videogame, with the voice and likenesses secured for all the forthcoming blockbuster movie's key characters.
The EA-published game launches in June on PS2, Xbox and GameCube and will feature the voices and likenesses of Christian Bale (Bruce Wayne/Batman), Michael Caine (Alfred Pennyworth), Liam Neeson (Henri Ducard), Katie Holmes (Rachel Dawes), Cillian Murphy (Dr. Jonathan Crane), Tom Wilkinson (Carmine Falcone) and Morgan Freeman (Lucius Fox).
The game "explores the origins of the Batman legend and the Dark Knight's emergence as a force for good in Gotham" and switches the action between the perspective of both Bruce Wayne and his alter-ego, Batman. Expect plenty of the usual superhero antics, "hunting evil-doers from the shadows, using strength, intellect and an array of high tech gadgets to fight the sinister forces that threaten the city".
'What sinister forces?' we hear you cry; why, 'classic villains' the Scarecrow, Ra's Al Ghul and Carmine Falcone, of course.
Given the amount of legal and licensing knots that EA will be tied in during the run up to release, expect information and true hands-on feedback to be a little more restricted than usual (for fear of plot spoilers and the like), but we hope to bring you more on Batman Begins as soon as EA let us. Let's pray it's better than Catwoman or Rogue Agent eh?
