[Update: Batman: Arkham Origins info hub updates: screens, trailer, details all in one place.]

New Batman Arkham Origins screens Joker & gadgets revealed
Stepping into the Joker’s vocal shoes is non other than Bioshock Infinite and The Last Of Us‘ Tory baker. Batman’s talking duties are taken by Roger Craig Smith, the voice of Assassin’s Creed 2′s Ezio Auditore and Resi’s Chris Redfield from Resident Evil. Confusingly the old voice of Batman, Kevin Conroy, has claimed he’s working on Origins after Warner Bros claimed he’d been dropped in order to give Bats a younger feel. Could there a split timeline in the game?
There’s also a first look at the new grapple gadget that enables the Dark Knight to attach and smash objects and enemies together. Here it’s being used to introduce a goon to a gas tank. It probably won’t end well for either.
Thanks Joystiq for the voice info.
