A leaked list of voice acting talent confirms the appearance of Nightwing, Superman, Azrael and Damian Wayne in Arkham Knight.
Nightwing ,SUPERMAN?, Azrael and Damian I wonder how he'll fit,ya know we havent had any superpowers in arkhamverse,mayvbe besides a bit of rash ul ghul segment(which was a dream i guess?) in city
Damn, if true Rocksteady ending the Arkham trilogy with a BANG. While I'm not sure how Rocksteady would make Superman fit, I'm confident they'll be able to do it in a convincing fashion. They succeeded in my opinion making all the characters in Arkham City fit. Would have been a hot mess otherwise in most cases.
I've been getting major Azrael in Kinghtfall vibes from the Arkham Knight character since the beginning. (edit: i'm not implying he IS the Arkham Knight of course, just that they're similar antagonists, rocksteady have stated its a brand new villain as we all know.) Azrael appeared briefly in Arkham City if anyone remembers, and kind of alluded to what may be coming in rocksteadys 3rd title. So I always assumed he'd feature heavily in the third game (I blinked origins out of existence in my mind before it even came out), I'd hardly consider his inclusion a "rumor", positive he'll be in Arkham Knight, and will definitely have a big role to play. Damian and Superman would be awesome (though I've never been a supes fan), the more I hear about arkham knight, the more it makes me think of Knightfall. Too bad the Arkham universes Bane isn't be as intelligent as Bane in Knightfall. Damian seems the least likely, unless the game is gonna jump at least 8 years ahead from Arkham City, or they explain where he was hiding during the last two games... or was he mentioned at all in one of the info/fact files? I can't remember every one I read :P
Game of the ever! So Psyched!!!!!!!!
The son of batman in this game that's weird.
Superman is in this game too??? This game is going to be EPIC.
So.. Superman and Batman ? Wow its gonna be EPIC
Please, make it happens
What about wolverine
hard to believe, probably easter eggs
Kinda wish stuff like this weren't spoiled so early. Whatever happened to the fun of being surprised?
Some of those could easily be mulitplayer characters if that mode is in the game but I kinda wish they didn't shoehorn Superman in there. If they do it right, that's awesome but I've been immersed in the Arkham games as they are. Either way, I can't wait for the game and want a date I know it will come out.
I think they came out and said it wouldn't have multiplayer so they could focus solely on the single player experience.
I hope that's true, I just hadn't heard that news. Thanks for the update. I still hope they know what they're doing if superman is in the game.
Maybe somebody else can help me out here but in the DC universe if I remember correctly BATMAN told Superman don't ever come the Gotham city because he's not wanted nor is he needed so how can they put Superman in the game?
The Arkham games are separate universe, non-canon to the comics.
Batman's just being stubborn. If zod or doomsday or darkseid came to gotham, batmann would be dead, and superman would need to come anyway
Could this game be a tie in to the upcoming Dawn of Justice movie? I serious doubt it but having more superheroes in the game will only make it that much better.
I'll mark the hell out if Superman appears!
Nightwing and Azrael was given, but Damian and Superman? F*** YEAH!!!
Ahhhhhh, classic superman voice actor.
I wish people would stop putting potential spoilers in the damned titles of the articles. I don't want to know anything about who may or may not be appearing in the game; I just want to play it and be surprised.
These guys should make a game like Lego Marvel, obviously without the Lego part.
@nope111 so where's Batman from the underworld. Of course it has to stay and the DC universe you just can't go making up willy-nilly stories
Perhaps the Superman appearance will be a reference to the introduction of a rocksteady superman game?!
A Superman cameo would be great. And they didn't finish Azrael story from Arkham City, he has to be in it.
Where's Jason Todd?
Superman... did i just read SUPERMAN will appear in Batman: Arkham Knight ?! OMG i think i feel 5 years younger jut thinking about it and i will be reborn if Rocksteady makes Superman trilogy video-game :D
I imagine batman will tell superman to get fucked basically and it will just be a few cameos maybe he saves batman once and batman says he didn't need saving and to gtfo XD but I'm definitely excited for this game night wing is cool as fuck
This may be a hint for the DC universe to truly expand into gaming. If there is anyone who can make a superman game it's rocksteady. Wishful thinking but I have faith in their ability to do it.
