Did you hear the news?! It appears that planning for the follow up to Rocksteady’s highly acclaimed ‘Batman: Arkham’ series is already underway.
While a third title may not be a huge surprise in and of itself (the series so far has done outstanding numbers, both in terms of sales and reviews – a third game is, and has always been, inevitable), there’s something comforting in knowing for sure that it’s coming.
Internet chatter seems to indicate that this new Batman title could be a prequel and as such the setting will be much more aligned with the silver-age of comics than anything we’ve seen previously in the series (for those who don’t know that’d mean Batman would be wearing his blue cape as opposed to black). The same chatter also indicates that Batman is to be meeting and facing the Joker for the very first time.
But by far the most exciting detail, which was posted in an article on Variety.com recently, is surely the word that Warner Bros. have delivered a proposal to Rocksteady relating to the possible insertion of the Justice League into their next Batman game.
While details are far from confirmed at this stage, the few that are being reported around the internet are all hugely feasible but could still be either rumours or early ideas that will eventually get scrapped. And although there’s no contactable source within the Variety article to confirm this information is accurate, the idea got me thinking: would including the Justice League work for the series?
And I concluded that I’m adamant it would. So without further chatter lets all assemble for ten ways Rocksteady could utilize the Justice League.
