  • Batman Arkham City Videogame Sequel Will Be A Silver Age Prequel

    Arkham City Sequel will be a Silver Age Prequel - IGN

    Now this is what I have faith in. They really couldnt do another installment and continue the story after Arkham City. They killed off The Joker and there was nothing to do with that anymore. Having a prequel and introducing other DC Characters should make the game just as good as the last two.

    Variety has learned that WBIE (Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment) is set to introduce members of the Justice League of America in the next installment of Rocksteady's Batman series.

    The entertainment trade magazine reports that the much-anticipated sequel to Arkham Asylum and Arkham City will, in fact, be a prequel centred on Batman's first meeting with his arch-nemesis The Joker. Stylistically, it will be based on the Silver Age era of DC comics (1956 to c.1970), when Batman first teamed up with other iconic DC heroes, like Superman and The Flash, establishing the Justice League of America.

    Variety claims this is part of a conscious effort by Warner Bros. to expose audiences to the Justice League of America, as it ramps up production on a JLA movie. It also reports the game will be released in 2014 at the earliest, with a JLA film mooted for a big screen release sometime in 2015.

    The Silver Age JLA typically consisted of 7 heroes: Superman, Batman, Aquaman, Flash, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter, and Wonder Woman.
