New Batman: Arkham Knight Screenshots Reveal Original Villain

A new series of screenshots has been released for Rocksteady's upcoming new-generation Batman game, Batman: Arkham Knight, showing Commissioner Gordon, the Batmobile, and - for the first time - the game's new villain.

The eponymous Arkham Knight character has been co-created by DC Comics and Rocksteady specifically for the game, and sports what appears to be a hi-tech version of the Batsuit worn by DC's much-loved superhero. Little else is known about the new foe at this stage.

According to an IGN interview with Dax Ginn, Rocksteady's brand manager, the Scarecrow will also play a significant role in the game. 

Batman: Arkham Knight is being developed for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and is planned for release later this year. The new screenshots can be seen below.

To randomly speculate: I'm gonna guess the new villain's a version of Azrael, a techno version of Batman who actual kills badguys

Yeah bad guy is clearly a play on Batman. Kinda looks like Ultron wearing camo.

Also, how big is that moon? Id say Batman has more pressing concerns than that other guy.

This game is going to be epic, well worth buying a new gen console to play it.

Not as in-the-know as most when it comes to this stuff but I think It would be cool if it was Jason Todd. Instead of becoming the Redhood he becomes the Arkham Knight.
