While the ending of Arkham Knight is ambiguous and one of the more confusing points of the series, the one thing we can heavily rely on: Bruce Wayne is no longer the Batman. He has hung up the mantle after the Knightfall protocol was activated, and whoever was seen continuing the legacy of the Batman using Scarecrow’s fear toxin in the end, was not the man himself.

All of which leads nicely into the rumoured protagonist for the next game: Damien Wayne.

The son of Bruce Wayne and Talia Al Ghul, Damien is the fifth person to wear the mantle of Robin - at least in the comics. However, in the new game, it is rumoured that he would be training with Bruce, who is now old with a beard, helping the former take on the mantle of the Dark Knight.

Aside from being set 10 years in the future, there is little to be known about the premise of the game, and what specific details we can safely transfer from comics to game. Damien’s mother remains in question, and could be changed, and we also don’t know how old Damien would be.

A 10-year-old Damien Wayne in a gritty Arkham Game? Who knows.


I like video games, writing and writing about video games. Expect sarcasm and the dry wit of a Brit. And the occasional rant of a unhappy Scot. You know... the usual.
