While many still wonder if Talia al Ghul, daughter of one of Batman%26rsquo;s greatest foes and one of Bruce%26rsquo;s main love interests, will make an appearance in Dark Knight Rises, today at Comic-Con we got a more important confirmation. The femme fatale will be appearing in the incredibly awesome-looking Batman: Arkham City, and she%26rsquo;ll be voiced by Stana Katic from the TV show Castle.

Adding Talia is a very intriguing choice, as her presence creates many questions, not the least of which is where her father in all this? Ra%26rsquo;s had a blink-and-you-miss-it Easter egg in Arkham Asylum, but the possible inclusion of his world-spanning League of Assassin%26rsquo;s in B:AC is a little bit outside the more ground-level Batman we%26rsquo;ve seen in the Arkham games so far. Will Ra%26rsquo;s just be a shadowy figure, one that might be teased as the villain for a third game?
Additionally, what impact will Talia have on the Bat%26rsquo;s mission in Arkham City? In the comics Talia has almost as often been Bruce%26rsquo;s enemy as she is his friend and would-be betrothed. And how%26rsquo;s Catwoman going to react if she has to compete for Batman%26rsquo;s attention? And will this Talia know Batman%26rsquo;s secret identity like she does in the books? We%26rsquo;ll let you guys in on the answers as soon as we know, though we have one last question: What do you think?
