Why the Joker will and should Not return alive in Batman Arkham Knight

While Batman: Arkham Knight is now just 7 month's away from being put on the shelves of every store across the globe, more irritating rumors of the Joker's return in the game keep surfacing on the web when they are not officially confirmed. It's like some people out there are too obsessed with the Joker that they can't seem to get enough of the character or that they are just screwing around just to upset fans as the twist from Arkham Origins did. To find out why the Joker shouldn't return alive in Arkham Knight, please read the article for some specific information:

Can't wait to see how they handle the Joker in Gotham

How epic would it be for Mark Hamill to actually play the Joker in Gotham!

ForgottenProphecy1381d ago

I think Joker will be a child/teenager on the show. I'd rather they have a kid who is really messed up in the head than an older guy playing him

Problem is the joker isnt the joker ... hes a normal dude until he gets dropped into a vat of chemicals and goes nuts. lol Think he was the red hood first.

What if the Arkham Knight is some kind of brain mechanical receptacle a la Krang in TMNT. Quinn is an ex psychiatrist, she may know a crazy genius / brain surgeon to do the job.

I don't say I want this, but that would make "sense" and you can go in many directions with this.

The author of that article sure doesn't want to see the Joker. Lol. I'm a massive Joker fan so I would like it if he's back. Just make him super nutty and really torment batman haha

If he does come back let's hope it's not in a shoehorned way. Arkham Origins brought him in wonderfully and he had some of his best moments. A man hopes he's not the Arkham Knight but perhaps he helped warp Todd's mind or something. Also it should be Mark Hamil. Not to mock Troy Baker as he did a fantastic young Joker but he deserves to do Joker again and finish off the Arkham games he has starred in 2 out of 3 and both Rocksteady ones.

Wow, did you guys read that article?

This is the most poorly written article I've ever seen on this website.

It reads like a "google translate", but it was actually written in English.

This is a disgrace.

Seriously, read this "sentence" copy-pasted from the article:

"One Arkham Game without the Joker involved would help make things in the Arkham Games much less irritating and because Joker is dead after having his last attempts for a cure to his titan disease was provoked by Batman and because of how the twist in Arkham Origins of him commiting the main plot of the game while pretending to be Black Mask, there is no way Batman Arkham Knight is gonna bring him back alive having him impersonate Scarecrow or be the Arkham Knight's true identity, otherwise it's gonna make some of the fans come after the people in charge for not giving it a rest with the Joker already and not to mention that the Arkhamverse will be more refered to as the Jokerverse since the games heavily revolve around the character."

Probably had Google translate what he wrote and then posted the results. He played us all.

My soul left my body halfway through...

OT: I didn't mind that Joker was the big bad in Origins, as I love the dichotomy of the relationship between Batman and Joker, as many fans do. Though I have my own theory for what is actually going on in that front, in regards to Arkham Knight. Not gonna say it just in case my theory is correct. But anyway, I love Scarecrow, so am pleased to see him take the proverbial spotlight.

SmielmaN1381d ago

Man, I'm glad im not the only one. I thought it was just me being too tired to read. Cue a joke about me not being able to read. Boom. But really, this was written .... Poorly.

Ghost_Nappa1381d ago

The Joker is dead. End of story.

Jeff2571381d ago

Yep and his body was cremated by Gordon and Batman in the Batman Arkham City: Endgame comic series. Joker is gone for good in that world.

HaydenJameSmith1381d ago

Joker has come back from death many times in the comics, anything is possible in the comic book world but I don't think they'll bring him back for the game but they may bring him back right at the end of the game... that would be a great way to end the series.

goldwyncq1381d ago

He might pull a Liquid Snake and possess the Arkham Knight.

SteamPowered1381d ago

There is so much the batman canon hasn't covered in the game, there is no need to rehash any Villian really. They could do a Ra's al goul, court of owls, doctor strange, so many good story runs.
