Soloman Grundy in Batman: Arkham City. HOLY SHIIIIIIIII...

That was my literal reaction to seeing the below trailer.  True, it's meant to showcase the Penguin, but one hulking undead individual steals the show.  Check it! 
  

   
What do y'all think?  Ready to face down Grundy in Arkham City?

Titan Formula, or is that just his regular size? (Not familiar with him)

I think I just shat myself
 
Penguin with a cockney?? I'm down

@InnerVenom123:  
He could quite possibly be beefed up with the Titan formula, but he's usually quite big all by himself.

I was more upset about Penguin's accent and wasn't really focusing on how awesome Solomon Grundy being in the game is

This may be the only game that I would go to a midnight launch for, without a doubt the most anticipated game I can remember!!!!!!

I dont' mind the accent so terribly much 
everything else about him and Grundy seem too good to worry about 
 
@ntb1124:
agreed!

Penguin is a badass in this trailer. so is Grundy. I think this is the portion I'm most excited for in the game.

I've always been a big Peguin fan 
I'm excited to get to these levels of the game

I'm also a fan of the Penguin, when well written he is very cool Mobster.

Also did anyone else notice the tracheotomy on the right side of Penguin's neck in this? Gross, but totally gives him a more awesome look as a villain.

Ohh I love Solomon Grundy!  Now I'm even more pumped!

@Caligula
I did see that! 
and it sort of makes sense, I mean, he's not such a great specimin genetically speaking 
it would stand to reason that he'd have health problems

and he smokes a lot so it makes sense.

@Caligula: indeed

Wow, I thought they'd never put Solomon in a game. This game is making me even more anxious.

that's about his usual size.

Solomon Grundy!.... I'm sold.

@Caligula
yeah, but he had glowy veins or an electric charge or something  
that maybe something to do with the Titan formula

possibly. but Innervenom was about his size.

But also Grundy is kind of a Frankenstein's Monsterish character, so that may have something to do with the electric charge. IDK but I am anxious to see.

@Caligula
me too 
I'm glad we'll get to have another bruiser beat down without them having to recycle Croc

Totally. Best choice for new Bruisers would be Grundy and Clayface. I hope Clayface is the other brick.

@Caligula
Clayface would be incredible 
and to think of all the awesome interactions you could have with him throughout a level with his shapeshifting powers  
here's hoping the next game is Batman: Gotham City and you get full reign over all of Gotham with TONS of villains and an equally as impressive stroy and line up

That's awesome. Is Solomon Grundy even a Batman villain?

yeah.

He's been both a Superman and Batman villain. but he appears in Batman books way more.

@Caligula: I see. Everytime I see him, he's usually fighting Superman, lol.

he's fought pretty much every one in DC at one point, other villains included. But most of his fights are with Batman, Green Arrow, and Superman. More Batman than anyone else though.

Clayface was actually an Easter Egg in the original Arkham Asylum.  True, it'd be cool to have him as an actual enemy, but he's at least made an "appearance".

Grew worse on Friday,

Actually he's more of an Alan Scott villain.
