4 Things Batman: Arkham Origins Stole From The Dark Knight Trilogy

WC - After it was revealed that Batman’s upcoming video game adventure was to be crafted by the unproven hands of brand new developer Warner Montreal rather than the rocksteady Rocksteady, there was a smidgen of panic. But now, with the latest Batman: Arkham Origins trailer having recently hit the net, there’s a growing pile of evidence to suggest that everything’s going to be just fine. While the Arkham gameplay mechanics might be largely untouched, Origins looks like another Batman outing that’s incredibly loyal to that ever-precious comic book source material and jam-packed with fanboy tributes. (Batman: Arkham Origins, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Which is a good thing.I think Nolan had the best interpretation of Batman and the Batman universe.

I wouldn't say best. I'd say somewhat realistic, which is a problem if you would ever have other DC characters featuring in a movie with his version of Batman.

Can you see Superman flying about or Flash zipping around in Nolan's version of Batman? Not really.

Conversely, the fact that Superman, Green Lantern and the Flash CAN'T exist on in the Nolanverse doesn't actually stop it from being the best.

Many would argue that the best stories within the Bat-Family Lore are actually those that don't contain those more super-able-bodied heroes. I don't believe that Nolan ever anticipated that other heroes (of the super-variety) existed within his world, and that is fine. It's the great thing about comic 'adaptations'.
