The trailer is gorgeous! No surprises as to who the assassins are thus far (they were the first two who sprang to mind when I heard of the storyline), but that's perfect. These guys belong in a set-up like this. I love that Black Mask is finally getting some love. I was bummed that we got a prequel instead of the next chapter in the Arkham series, but this is shaping up to be a nice one.

Black mask looks cool.

Anarky is such an unknown character strange he's in it.

Deathstroke and deadshot were to be expected.

Also there is Queen industries written on the box.

Too bad that after the Final Fantasy movie, Hollywood doesn't believe in adult animation unless James Cameron is attached.

I really hope that the team that makes the Justice League movie uses this level of realism for Batman. I want him to be able to fight, goshdarnit!

It seems that it's really easy for people to get Batman post-Nolan. Just tell a crime or ninja story. I wish they understood Wonder Woman (Greek Fantasy like God of War or Clash of the Titans), Green Lantern (Space Opera like Star Trek or Star Wars), or Flash (Time Cop like Prince of Persia, kinda?) as well. Maybe they will after the Justice League movie.

The premise for the game is cool as long as they actually stick to assassins and gangs for the villains However if they just put characters like Joker in for the sake of using the Joker, then im going to have serious problems with the story.

And even if the premise is cool, I can't help but worry that the execution won't be. With Rocksteady not developing we can only hope that its handled as well as the other games in the series.

Kevin Conroy told the crowds at the Dallas Comic-con that he will be involved in the game, but Joystiq have confirmed that Roger Craig Smith will be playing a younger Batman, while Troy Baker is taking up the Joker.

They're are going to have to start using some obscure characters because they know fans don't want to fight some people over and over. I wouldn't be surpised if Green Arrow villains start to show up.

That was a fun trailer. Great action., solid voice acting, and accurate characterization. Get back to me when there's gameplay.

Holy Majoly! What a trailer! DC just go release stuff like this at the cinema! I'm so excited for this game now. May go for a pre-order too.

My brother said Rocksteady will release another game next year and Kevin Conroy will be Batman. I'm glad he isn't a young Batman, but I've already took heat from that comment from my brother all month lol.

Hehe ... Queen Industries. Maybe we'll see some Ollie?

I think he'll be an older Batman telling this story to Terry the next Batman, I can only hope :)

Jesus Christ. Jesus F. Christ. That was awesome.

It's incredible how I want from not knowing who Deathstroke is to Deathstroke is one of my favorite characters in 3 months.

#23 Posted by JangoCrossfire (59 posts) - - Show Bio

At the 4:30 mark, there's a shot of a star. Is this scene taking place in Star City? Or am I overthinking things because of the Queen Industries "easter egg"?

The "Knight/Night" is still young. Tell me that wasn't done on purpose.

OHMYGOD ANARKY

I'M DYING HERE

OF UTTER HAPPINESS

Oh yeah, and the trailer, Deadshot and the Green Arrow easter egg were pretty cool too.

BUT ANARKY

PRE-ORDERED!

The voice of the first masked goon in this trailer is one of the Jokers men who robbed the bank at the start of The Dark Knight, his mask is also the same just all black.

Beastly trailer, but I would've preferred Ron Perlman doing the voice for Deathstroke/Slade.

#28 Edited by Shazam78 (138 posts) - - Show Bio

The trailer was beautiful but the gameplay will be the real deciding factor for me. I do agree that I wish a full length movie with this level of quality would be great. The CG Final Fantasy movie tanked because it nothing to do with the game.

This is all bluster, they haven't shown anything of value or given me any reason why I should get this game yet also with no Conroy and no Rocksteady it's not stacked in it's favour

#31 Posted by nappystr8 (1080 posts) - - Show Bio

Without gameplay footage this trailer does as little for me as the previous teaser. Anyone can put together a pretty cinematic.

#32 Edited by PunyParker (9397 posts) - - Show Bio

-Joker will be voiced by Troy Baker, not Mark Hamill. Batman will be voiced by Roger Craig Smith, not Kevin Conroy.

What?!....i thought Conroy confirmed it!

Oh!...and my reaction to the trailer....

Especially the start was awesome...movie-awesome!

#33 Posted by ChillinVillain (141 posts) - - Show Bio

@nappystr8: The last game had a cinematic trailer as it's first trailer as well; give them time, and we'll have gameplay trailers to see as well (likely at E3).

Now that... was awesome!

@punyparker: He said he was involved with Arkham Origins he didn't say he was voicing Batman

So did DC Universe Online and it was a steaming pile

@jonny_anonymous: So who he voiced?.....or how he was involved?.....

Also,i only know that this Baker guy voiced Two-Face in AC..... Roger Craig Smith?..

#37 Posted by Jonny_Anonymous (32993 posts) - - Show Bio

@punyparker: It's been said before that he voice coached the guy that's playing Batman, whether he's going to have a character in AO I don't know

#38 Edited by PunyParker (9397 posts) - - Show Bio

@jonny_anonymous

: Maybe the story progresses and we see Bats older,and Conroy-voiced!!
I'm worried about Baker....Joker isnt an easy character to play...

I Also just saw that this Smith guy is the guy who voiced Ezio!!

WE HAVE EZIO VOICING BATMAN!!

- Nice trailer however, i'm still not buying this drivel as Richard will not be in it.

- Also, the joker? Really? I've had enough of this idiotic and inane character to last eight lifetimes.

DCUO is amazing...it has vastly better combat/PvP than almost any MMO out there. To each his own, tho...

Great trailer for an digital video, but it doesn't say anything about the game. As always I'll be waiting for the reviews before buying

#44 Posted by RedX17 (73 posts) - - Show Bio

It is amazing!!! If this get's any better i'm gonna nerdgasim!!!

And while i love Conroy as Batman, it does kinda make sense for a younger actor to play Bats in a prequeal. I don't gotta like it, but it makes sense.
