Arkham City Sequel will be a Silver Age Prequel
Justice League of America set to appear.
by Daniel Krupa JULY 11, 2012

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.

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

    Calling the DLC fuckery now.

    Game will be Batman and give you cutscenes featuring Justice League members. The DLC will be challenge maps featuring certain members for probably 10-15 dollars a pop. All told, this game'll be over $120 when you finishing buying all the content.

    Rocksteady knows they've released two GOTY-caliber titles, so people will pay through the nose to see Rocksteady's take on the rest of the DCU.

    hopefully they actually listen to fans and make them playable characters in the actual story and actually include additional dlc story content.

    Even better is the scheming that they won't listen to get everybody speculating before dropping the gem. Remember them saying no Robin?

    "No Robin in Arkham City." *Game nears gold* "Guess what? Nightwing and Robins at the same damn time!"

    It's not if the DLC happens, but when does it happen. The only problem is figuring out how to Nerf powers in the maps while still letting the players feel like they're playing as heavy-hitters. Aside from Batman, everyone else on the JLA would mop a challenge map in seconds.

    Arkham Writer Not Returning for Next Game
    Paul Dini won't be back for Rocksteady's next installment.
    by Anthony Gallegos AUGUST 2, 2012

    Paul Dini, the writer for both Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City, has revealed via his Twitter that he won't be returning for the recently announced prequel. In a post on July 27th, Dini said:
    Paul_Dini@Paul_Dini
    Kinda hoped I'd be doing another Arkham game in London during the Olympics. Esp, as I had a good source for tx.
    Ah, well.

    If the initial tweet didn't make it crystal clear, the team at ArkhamCity.co.uk went on to look through a series of Dini's tweets to absolutely confirm he won't be returning as the writer for the next Arkham game.

    Dini seems a bit broken up over it as well, saying, "I wish I could, but it's not my call." Dini is responsible for not only penning the first two games, but also the beloved Batman: The Animated Series cartoon.

    No word has been given about who will replace Dini on the next project.

    That's ok. dini is great but he's a more modern age writer, not a silver age writer. There's plenty of good writers in comics who could do it. Dan jurgens and George perez come to mind.
