Fans were chilled to the bones when the warm attitude of the Scarlet Blur was compromised into murderous intent. And in a recent trailer, the game showed the most terrifying hero of the DC universe, Batman’s dark side. 

In the teaser, the Dark Knight struck from the shadows, while the members of the squad stood still, afraid and shocked. This teaser holds a lot of significance for the fans and the universe, as it was confirmed that this game will be in the same universe as the Arkham Games. And none other than the Legendary voice actor, Kevin Conroy, who recently passed away voiced the Caped Crusader.

Fans share their thoughts on the dark role of the Dark Knight 

Many fans pointed out that initially, the team was planning to keep the Batman reveal a surprise. Because in the last Arkham series, Arkham Knight, Batman died in the end. But it was speculated by the community that Batman wasn’t dead, instead, he had ‘faked’ his death. 

Fans pointed out that the reveal was going to be a spectacle in the game, but due to the recent heartbreaking departure of Kevin, the team decided to reveal that the Dark Knight is still alive, and he is back with a vengeance, to give tribute to his last performance as the silent guardian.
