After flooring the world with a quick two-punch combo comprised of simultaneously announcing a new Batman game named Arkham Knight and telling us it features a fully drivable Batmobile, we've finally arose from a brief collapse with speculation buzzing all around. The Arkham series has always been known for delivering quality villains to foil Batman's adventures, tweaking and refining DC comics' finest into a fitting set of antagonists for the Arkham universe. There's plenty to plunder as well, and we're already wondering which of Batman's adversaries we'll see in the next and (probably) final instalment in Rocksteady's Batman trilogy. So far we have confirmation of the appearance of Scarecrow, Penguin, Harley Quinn and Two Face - judging by the amount of villainous chaps and chapettes who were in Arkham City, we're still due a whole lot more than that of Arkham Knight. Who will show up? Many are hoping for some surprises and certainly some new faces, perhaps with a dash of those we've already seen thrown in for good measure. So, grab your favourite speculation hat and pondering moustache as we ponder which villains will show up in what's sure to be one of the biggest games of 2014.
