Finished playing Batman Arkham Origin, while i know it's not a rocksteady game, it made me appreciate how much good Rocksteady does for their version and got me thinking which superhero i would like to play using the same / similar system they use..

Daredevil was one I could think of especially with his blindness and how they can adjust that with the detective mode and would love to know more about his story.

Captain America was another I would like to have as he seems perfect for this kinda game as you can create combo moves with a shield and also help your fellow american's / people in which ever country they set the game in as side quest and villains

and maybe Black Panther and Ghost Rider

I'm always indecisive but personally I would LOVE rocksteady to make a new superhero game as they seems to know what they are doing

P.S. I did think of superman but the mechanics of the game would be quite harder since he's way too strong to do this unless you base the story on fighting Kryptonians

What would you pick if you had the option?

Green Arrow? Solely to capitalise on the entire 'Arrow' buzz.

An Arrow game would be good. Maybe too similar a character though. If they go with a Marvel character than Daredevil is the obvious choice. A Punisher game would probably be too violent for them.

I agree about Daredevil but never did think about Punisher, that would be good aswell but agree about the violent, but then again, you could argue Batman is violent as it's a beat 'em up game.

I'm not really a comic-book guy, but wouldn't playing as Daredevil be somewhat limiting in terms of the proposed game's graphics?

Rocksteady Studios are owned by Warner Brothers who also own DC Comics so I doubt any Marvel character will ever be touched by them so that rules out Daredevil (a very good indie game came out recently playing on the blind/see by noise dynamic... can't remember what it was called though...), Capt. America, Black Panther, Ghost Rider, Punisher and, criminally, Squirrel Girl...

Honestly i think anyone less than Justice League wouldn't be enough for me

Would i enjoy a new batman, of course i would i even like origins, but it would feel like they aren't trying anything new

Imagine a full open world Metropolis/Gotham where you have a set of heroes you can play as (Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Green Arrow, Aquaman the list could go on) each with their own unique gameplay styles and unique enemies

If they 'had' to make a solo game, i'd go for Superman as a precursor for a JL game, all you would have to come up with is a compelling story why his powers are gimped, so that you can add some challenge to the game, then once you have finished the main story you could have superman with all his powers to just fly around and do as you please

All his other senses are heightened. He sees through noise. Good dynamic right there.

Played entirely via surround sound and a special haptic feedback controller.

Wow you learn something new, didn't realise Rocksteady was owned by WB. only way WB would be able to do so if they were to acquire the license to make games but now Disney owns Marvel, that could be a problem which kinda sucks.

If i had to based WB doing DC characters only then I suppose Arrow could work using the predator mode gameplay.

Wonder woman could work aswell but it would be a risky move

Green Lantern would be another good beat em up with a few moves i could think of but since he could fly, that could screw the dynamics of the game aswell as Superman, and as someone previously mentioned you would need a very good story and not a cop out as to why they are flightless.

I also seriously doubt Warner Bros would let Rocksteady make a game about a Marvel character. One upside is Lego Marvel Superheroes. That is published by Warner Bros, so anything can happen.

I would be interested in seeing an anti hero game instead. Maybe based on characters like The Joker or Lex Luthor.

Actually, that's a good point. WB also own TT, who develop the Lego video games... Maybe because it was Lego, Mickey Mouse let this one go...

maybe if Rocksteady releases the next batman game (which is rumoured to be next year) as a sequel to arkham city that if the sales are really good that an agreement between rocksteady + Disney/Marvel could be agreed as a new next gen game?

Personally I can only see 3 games in Rocksteady portfolio so maybe Disney don't wanna gamble alienating their fanbase. who knows?

The Tick. Spoooon!

I'm sick of the gritty super-serious bullshit.
