Mark Hamill, Kevin Conroy Lead All-Star Voice Cast for ‘DC Universe Online’
While we haven’t really seen too much from Comic-Con (and yeah, it’s still super early) in regards to Sony Online Entertainment’s highly anticipated action MMO, “DC Universe Online,” at the very least fans and gamers alike can now hear what the characters will sound like…sort of…work with us here, folks.
Coming to us via press release in the run-up to San Diego Comic Con this weekend, SOE has announced the voice actors who will be providing the lines for the game’s major characters, and it’s a who’s who of fan favorites that are no strangers to the streets of Gotham or the spires of Metropolis.First off, veteran Batman talents Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill will be reprising their roles as the voices of Batman and the Joker, respectively. The two vocal actors have definitely become synonomus with the characters over the years, thanks to their work on several Batman animated series and films, as well as their recent turns in the hit Rocksteady video game, “Batman: Arkham Asylum” along with its upcoming sequel, which will reportedly be the last time he voices the Clown Prince of Crime.
Joining Conroy and Hamill will be “Firefly”/”Serenity” alumni Adam Baldwin (providing the voice of Superman) and Gina Torres (as Wonder Woman), along with “Buffy ” star James Marsters and “Battlestar Galactica” actress Michelle Forbes, who will be playing the respective vocal roles of Lex Luthor and Circe.
“DC Universe Online” is expected to drop in November for PS3 and PC (cue *sad trombone* for you XBox 360 owners out there), with Beta codes coming soon.
