Screens: Lose your mind over Batman: Arkham Origins
It’s Christmas Eve. Rather than decking the halls with some ho ho hoes, Batman is up against eight assassins out to cash in the bounty on his head, generously donated by crime lord Black Mask. It’s Die Hard in Gotham. So much for a silent (dark) night.
With DC scribe Geoff Johns guiding the project and taking inspiration from Batman: Year One and Legends of the Dark Knight you can expect a rougher around the edges Caped Crusader constantly on the back foot and even doubting his abilities. It’s looking a treat thus far and while we’re stinging for more, these screens will have to do.
Bashing through the snow…
So boss, why do they call you Black Mask?
You’re about two seconds away from becoming a real live chimney sweeper
I’m Batman… errr… I mean, Deathstroke
That Batman, he’s so hot right now
OK guys, keep an eye out for a large bat-like creature skulking in the shadows
The irony of Batman unloading a Superman punch is not lost on us
Now I have a batarang… ho ho ho
