Batman: Arkham City
Warner Bros. Register Several Batman Arkham Universe Domains
Written By
View author's profile

Warner Bros. has registered 15 new domain names that could relate to future Batman / Arkham titles.

Among the titles - registered by the publisher’s Domain manager MarkMonitor - are Arkham Universe, Batman Arkham Arises, Batman Arkham Origins and Batman Arkham Stories.

Back in July it was revealed that Arkham developer Rocksteady is considering a prequel story for its next Batman game. With a visual style inspired by the 1950s comics, the game would document the Caped Crusader’s very first meeting with the Joker.

It’s far from confirmed. Plus, the registration of website domains only offer a hint of Warner Bros.’ future intentions.

Indeed, last year it was reported that a movie is in the works based on the Arkham Asylum game, scheduled for a 2016 release. Time will tell what we end up with, but whatever way it pans out - more batman can only be a good thing.

Here’s the full list of domain registrations:

  • (Arkham Universe)
  • (Batman Arkham Universe)
  • (Batman Arkham Arises)
  • (Batman Arkham Begins)
  • (Batman Arkham Dark Knight)
  • (Batman Arkham Knight)
  • (Batman Arkham Legend)
  • (Batman Arkham Legends)
  • (Batman Arkham Night)
  • (Batman Arkham Origins)
  • (Batman Arkham Stories)
  • (Dark Knight Arkham)
  • (DC Arkham Universe)
  • (DC Arkhamverse)
  • (The Arkham Universe)

I really hope for another game similar to Arkham City. Whever it's a prequel or not I don't mind, just give me more Batman!

Please no god awful 50s crap! The 2 Arkham games so far have been, to me, the ultimate version of Batman. No one want to see Batman do the batusi (well, actually...)!

@#1 Rocksteady did a great job with Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, why start doubting them now? I trust them with my favourite franchise and I reckon they will do a class job of their next Batman game.

@9 Why are you comparing CoD to Batman?

Both are totally different games. Both are published and developed by different companies.

To be fair, most of these are never intended to be used. They're either to keep their naming options open in the future, or stop anyone else from securing those domain names.

This could be for the reboot film so don't get your hopes up because they are going with a idea like arkham asylum if rumours are true so with a shit end film which I will not see because my heart was broken with the last airbender and dragonball evolution but hope arises

Trust me, Batman in the Silver Age can be done well. Go read Grant Morrison's Batman for proof.

God no please don't do 50's style. We have had decades of progress don't go back. Batman survived the 50's by the skin of his bat-balls. It will be camp, knowing and light weight. Please God strike them down and don't allow it to happen.

I'm not sure where the series can go after Arkham City. Maybe Rocksteady knows this and, not wanting to miss out on that sweet Batman-based revenue, decided a prequel story is the only way to go. In that case, apart from showing an amazing level of foresight not seen by developers, they are doing the right thing and I am SO in for this one.

Open world Batman. Start off in Wayne Manor/Batcave. Get missions via Batcomputer/Gordon. Cruise town in the Batmobile/Batcycle/Batwing/Batboat. Co-Op w/ Robin, Nightwing, Catwoman, Huntress, or Green Arrow (similar unpowered heroes relying on fighting abilities or items). RPG elements as you level up. Unlockable Batman costumes from past and current. Gadgets galore.

Batman has one of the richest rogues' galleries to choose from (along with Spider-Man and The Flash). Put them to good use and have 20-30 archvillains in there.

Don't really think they should do another game with Joker, even though he's my favorite villain, simply because if Mark Hamill doesn't do the voice work, it's simply not the joker. ok...MAYBE if they got John DiMaggio, as he did a bang up job on Under the Red Hood, but that would still be pushing it for me.

@30 Hamill said he's done with Joker unless the right scropt was presented. Honestly, I think he said that to throw people off. I bet Rocksteady has been working on something AWESOME and he's been in the loop. Yes, John "Bender Marcus" DiMaggio did a good job with Red Hood, but he's no Hamill.

Anyway. Rocksteady. Shut Up and Take My Money!

I like how they use so many different villains in each game. I'm not a batman fan, so it's interesting to learn about all of them.

better be a new one, they left so many cliffhangers in AC that i thought it would be for future DLC, but i guess they will finish it up in a new game.

For those afraid that the silver age setting would mean a campy story, don't.

They aren't going to take out the edge, the Comics Code Authority ruined Batman for a long time (the original comic was dark, then some idiot wrote a book about how comics were evil that is complete BS that everyone believed, similar to what is going on now with violence in videogames/movies).

They won't be making a campy game, they will tell a story where Batman is just starting out as more of a loner vigilante. No connection to the League, no giant Batman family (if there is any at all), a connection with Gordon that has only just begun (with Gordon not being the Commissioner yet, so he has significantly less power), or a situation where there is no connection with Gordon.

Basically it would be Batman: Year One but only in premise (not a video game version of the Batman: Year One graphic novel).

Arkham City was too short for me and still prefer Arkham Asylum but same as @4.

No 50s batman for me.

If they want to change of era, at least, they can use "Batman Beyond".

Half of those sound so bad they aren't even worth mentioning but batman arkham origins, arises, and legends sound sick. But honestly they could call it "ponies and dreams of the caped crusader" I'm still 100% gonna get it.

I'm gonna buy this game no matter what the title is. I've gotten all of the achievements in AA and AC, so I wanna keep the streak alive. (Arkham Asylum was my first game on Xbox 360)
