Smith and Baker are voice-over veterans. Smith provided the voice work for Chris Redfield in Resident Evil 6 and for Ezio Auditore de Firenze in Assassin's Creed II. More recently, Smith played the voice of Sonic the Hedgehog in Disney's animated film Wreck-It-Ralph.

As for Baker, he is already familiar with the Batman series, having provided voice work for numerous characters in Batman: Arkham City, including Harvey Dent and Robin. Baker most recently played Booker DeWitt in BioShock Infinite and will be heard as Joel in Naughty Dog's upcoming postapocalyptic game The Last of Us.

Though longtime Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy will not play the Caped Crusader in Batman: Arkham Origins, he has been confirmed for the game. It was recently revealed that Conroy has already spent 10 months working on the game, though his contribution to the project is unknown.

Batman: Arkham Origins launches October 25 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and Wii U. A 3DS game--Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate--will launch the same day for the 3DS and PlayStation Vita developed by a group of former Metroid Prime developers at Armature Studios.

Warner Bros. also confirmed today that Deathstroke will be a playable character in Batman: Arkham Origins. Gamers who preorder the title will receive early access to the Deathstroke pack. For more on Batman: Arkham Origins, check out the game's all-new trailer below.
