Batman To Fight Non-Assassin Villains Including The Joker In ‘Batman: Arkham Origins’

Batman vs. that classic villain Random Bearded Man.

Who’s Batman going to be facing off against in Batman: Arkham Origins? It’s an important question, since really, the villains are as important to the Arkham games as Batman himself. Initially the only hint we were given was that Batman will be going up against “eight of the world’s deadliest assassins”. One of those Assassins is going to be Deathstroke. Our own Dan Seitz did some speculating about who the other seven might be.

Well, new information has come out over the last week, and it looks like Batman will be battling more than just assassins. Game Informer recently revealed that the game’s main villain will be Black Mask, and that the game will contain The Penguin and today an image of an Arkham Origins retail display featuring the faces of several familiar villains leaked. Hit the jump for that…

It’s blurry, but the display seems to feature the faces of The Joker, Scarecrow, Killer Croc, Bane and Deadshot.

What do you folks think? Glad to see The Joker and other high profile, yet already-done characters like Bane and Scarecrow included? Or would you have preferred they stuck strictly to the “8 deadliest assassins” premise?
