Who Is Arkham Knight?

Game Informer: When we revealed Rocksteady’s final entry in the Arkham series, Batman: Arkham Knight, its title didn’t draw much scrutiny. It had Arkham in the name, and it was a clear nod to Batman. At least, that’s what we thought before getting our demo of the game. After seeing it in action, we realized that it was actually a reference to what Rocksteady says is an all-new character. Who is Arkham Knight? The team wouldn’t provide any specifics, but we’ve got a few ideas.

its either red hood, wrath, joker, hush or Damien Wayne

Its most likely Jason todd he's referenced twice in Arkham City plus in the animated movie batman red hood, he protects various mob bosses from batman and black mask.

Wrath is the opposite of Bruce Wayne, he also dress up a bit like batman and protects villains. it is not known whether batman has taken down hush yet could hush somehow gotten access the bat cave he does have Bruce Wayne's face, plus there was an article before the games reveal hinting that hush might be the main villain of the game.

I don't think Damien Wayne has been introduced into the Arkham universe yet.

There is two reasons it might be joker even though the developer said he was dead
1) in batman Arkham origins joker pretended to be black mask in order to fool batman and the assassins/villains hired to kill batman into working for him. 2) in the animated series the batman there is an episode where joker pretends to be batman and begins to take down batman's villains.

They confirmed that he's not Joker and that Joker won't make an appearance outside of a few passing mentions, he's dead for good.

I have a feeling its Thomas Wayne Jr aka Owlman. Makes sense given the suit, however not sure if they'll incorporate different earths in this game.

Someone commented on the article that the Arkham Knight kind of resembles the a Phantasm from the animated movie Mask of the Phantasm. I don't think this new character is a reimagining of the Phantasm, but I do think the general concept is the same. The Phantasm was a dark, brooding figure, similar to batman, and someone close to Bruce Wayne was being the mask, and I think we could see a similar scenario with the Arkham Knight. That being said, I honestly believe it's Hush, but I could definitely be wrong.

Didn't they say it was a original character from rocksteady ?

ironfist921739d ago

he character is new, but the person inside it isnt, if that makes sense. Like an existing character is donning an entirely new persona.

I just love the idea that Rocketed has developed such a level of respect that they, along with DC can create a new villain for their game. Thats amazing.

I play DCUO and they had a hell of a time getting green auras in the game.

Arkham Knight is Batman's father.
