The Dark Knight Surprises As a Talking Toy in New Lego Batman 2 Trailer

So Lego Batman 2 will be the first toy-centric video game developed by Traveler's Tales that features voice acting. Now, given that the silent comedy was a big part of the appeal in previous Lego games, there might be some worry about such a change. But as the trailer above shows, the upcoming game looks as funny as the ones that preceded it. Those voices may not be coming from Kevin Conroy or Mark Hamill—and, honestly, the longtime Batman and Joker actors' takes may be too dark for this game—but the laughs come regardless of who's giving voice to hero or villain. You'll get to hear more from the toy versions of 50-plus DC characters when Lego Batman 2 hits next week.


No Conroy means I am less likely to buy (No Hamil also hurts my interest) because as far as I am concerned, Kevin Conroy is the voice of Batman. It is like trying to have Transformers without Peter Cullen voicing Optimus Prime.
