News: Arkham Origins: The Joker As A Villain?!

batman-arkham-origins-gameWelcome! To the Madhouse Batman!” – The Joker, Arkham Asylum.

As I predicted in my first ever article for The Games Cabin, the Joker is rumoured to be featured in the upcoming Batman: Arkham Origins.

A photo released for CVG has shown that the Joker will be featured within the game.
The Joker, however, will not be voiced by fan favourite Mark Hamill as he’s retired for the game series and as the voice of everybody’s favourite Clown Prince of Gotham.

The photo also shows Scarecrow, Bane, Killer Croc and Deathstroke. No-one knows whether these villains will feature as the 8 assassins hired to kill Batman however we can assume they will have a significant role within the story.arkham-origins-villain-720x449

Now all I need to do is prove that my hypothesis of Joker’s “Red Hood” back-story featured in the graphic novel “The Killing Joke” is how the Joker will be featured in Arkham Origins.

Only time will tell.

Now my Question for you all is; What villains would you like to see in Arkham Origins and how do you think they’ll get themselves into Batman’s crosshairs?

  1. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: rupert Thorne. Notorious crime boss, mobster, normal guy. All of Batman’s adversaries are out there, like Batman: Extreme shifts that are reacting to extreme shifts. Let’s not forget that Bruce Wayne became Batman because a faceless thug murdered his parents.Joker, Killer Croc, Scarecrow, Penguin, all exist as they do as a reflection of the extreme take on justice that Batman represents. Would these villains still exist without the Bat? Very possibly, but most of them wouldn’t be quite so outlandish, not so theatrical. I’d like to see Batman take on the everyday thug, one who’s willing to shoot him dead as opposed to matching wits with elaborate plans or esoteric riddles. To me, that might make it more personal, because when Batman fights common criminals like mobsters and muggers, he’s fighting that which took away his childhood. Of course, unless the writing is really good, I doubt a simple mobster would compare to matching wits with, say, Ras Al Ghul. But it could be done.
