Variety has learned that WBIE is expected to reteam some of the characters in some form for the next installment in Rocksteady Studios’ gritty vidgame series that began with “Batman: Arkham Asylum” and “Arkham City.”
New, highly stylized title is being developed as a prequel that revolves around Batman’s first meeting with the Joker. It’s based on the Silver Age of DC’s comicbooks from the 1950s when the Caped Crusader teamed with other heroes like Superman and founded the Justice League of America.
As much as I love the Joker (honestly my favourite villain of all time), they need to pick another main villain to revolve it around. Part of me says that because Hammill won’t be doing the voice, and he’s amazing as the Joker, but also because I’m just kind of tired of all Joker all the time and want to see what they can do to expand some of the other villains.
“Green Lantern” scribes Marc Guggenheim and Michael Green are writing “The Flash” for director Greg Berlanti, while another “Green Lantern” scribe, Michael Goldenberg, has been hired to write “Wonder Woman.”
Whitta, get started on a Flash script STAT! Save my favorite hero, please.
Have great faith in Rocksteady’s ability to deliver solid games, but previous two Batman titles were all about dark, gritty settings and characters. While prospect of playing as other super-powered comic characters definitely holds a lot of potential, unsure how bat-glue-wielding, dynamic-duo-with-Robin version of character will fit into an engine optimized for open-world exploration and multi-enemy melee combat.
I’d be okay with option two as long as its a bit more expansive than the ds/wii one. Something a little open world with the strong combat of the arkham games. I’m going to admit I had a blast with brave and the bold on ds. I think it’s the most fun I’ve had in a video game for a while just because of how goofy things were. Gorilla Grodd turns Batman into Bat-Ape and Aquaman rides him as they battle gorilla Grodd. It’s probably the hardest I’ve laughed at a video game in a long time.
