Promos Reveal Possible Villains in Arkham Origins

arkham teaser

Marketing promos can often reveal bits and pieces about games long before that info’s ready to be given out by developers and publishers. And today, a post on CVG points the way to a stand-up display for WB Interactive’s Batman: Arkham Origins that looks like it drops the dime on the bad guys who will face off against the Caped Crusader.

While the game is supposed to feature 12 of the world’s best assassins, the villains that can be deciphered from the display are Deathstroke, Joker, Bane, Killer Croc, Scarecrow, and Deadshot. That’s in addition to Black Mask, who’s already been revealed in previous assets that have made their way online.

While I was a little skeptical about telling an origin story for Batman (and I’m still skeptical of an Arkham game without Rocksteady Studios), the more I think about it, the more this makes sense. The Arkham series of games exists outside of normal DC Comics continuity, so it makes sense that the people making these games would want to help flesh out the world they’re creating. I’m curious to see what kinds of threats the game-world’s Batman has had to deal with.

That said…I’m even more curious to see where the franchise goes AFTER Arkham City.

  1. Is the Joker coming back to life in batman: Arkham origins?????

    • Nope–Origins is a prequel. That’s why I’m so eager to find out about what happens after Arkham City, since Origins takes place before Arkham Asylum. Oh, prequels. You are hardly ever a good idea.

  2. I’m more curious to see where this franchise goes AFTER Rocksteady. This could lay a giant egg, which would be an absolute shame. The first two games were excellent.

  3. Question: Mark Hamill has retired from doing the voice of the Joker. So if he is in it, who will be doing it? And no offense, but one of the main reasons I loved the Arkham series was because of Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy.

    I think that this will be a great game. I don’t even want to list my villains because there are a lot of them.There are 1,000+. II’ found all of them on,, and The Batman Vlllain Project. Anyway,you would have to type in from google or any other searching source website to find them. I would like it that if you all can give me a list of all the easter eggs,glitches,and secrets from Batman:Arkham City. I know a lot of them, but I would like to find more even hard ones that have not been heard yet on the internet. I think you should make predictions,and don’t be shy to.Also,there are a lot of ideas with the Batman Arkham in the future after Batman:Arkham Origins,here they are.
    1.Batman:Arkham Downfall (Summer, 2014).
    2.Batman:Arkham Terror (Fall,2014)
    3.Batman:Arkham Chaos(Video game) (September 14,2015)
    4.Batman:Arkham Revelations (2015)
    5.Batman:Arkham City of Terror (Fall 2016)
    6.Batman:Arkham Annihilatin (August 8,2017)
    There is also more titles that actually don’t have release dates. But hey, Rocksteady and Warner Bros. have decidedto craft a fourth game in the Arkham Franchise, Batman:Arkham Chaos. Remember that folks.These titles are found on google would you type Batman Arkham ideas wikia and you will find for what you are looking for.
    I would like it that if you all can tell me who you think should be on the new for Batman:Arkham Origins and Arkham games after that in the future.I hope you all have fun with the new Batman game and can comment on how you like my ideas.
