We all know there has to be a sequel to Batman: Arkham City. Today some news has come out about the next game but it's not going to be a sequel. Instead, it will be a prequel and feature the Justice League.
There has been plans in trying to get people more familiar with the Justice League. We've heard the rumblings of plans for a live action movie. This sounds like another way to make consumers and non-comic book readers aware of the team. We've already seen members show up in Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes and of course they will be featured in next year's Injustice video game.
Variety has reported that the next Arkham game will center around Batman's first encounter with the Joker. It was also mentioned that there would be a Silver Age feel to the game and have Batman teaming up with members of the Justice League.
The questions remain whether or not it will still have the same gritty feel Rocksteady Studios have crafted and will Mark Hamill reprise his role. He's already stated he would not return in the next game.
It all sounds like a good idea but doesn't feel like it'd fit in with the other two games. It makes sense they'd want to capitalize on the success of the first two Arkham games but we'll have to wait and see how it progresses.
