the underwhelming reception to Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham Knight, the billionaire
playboy has been hiding in his cave, licking his wounds until – hopefully –
Warner Bros. Montreal are ready to bring him back, better than ever.
the longest time any rumours surrounding the next Batman game have hinted at it
being a continuation from Origins, named Arkham Insurgency, or a sequel after the events
of Knight where son of Bruce, Damian Wayne, dons the famous tights and
if it’s a sequel or prequel, what matters most is that the next inevitable
Batman game has a variety of unfamiliar rogues who are not titan Joker, sick
Joker, origins Joker or trapped-inside-Batman’s-head joker.
while it’s justifiably easy to criticise the recurrence of the Clown Prince of
Crime, he’s not the only adversary the Arkhamverse has lazily relied on for way
too long. Two-Face, the Penguin, Poison Ivy, Scarecrow, Killer Croc and the
Riddler all need to go away so the forgotten, underrated and modern villains in
DC Comics’ library can have their time in the spotlight, contributing to an
original follow-up every Bat-fan deserves.
