Batman: Arkham Origins Deathstroke trailer

Yeah, yeah, I know, it’s old news by now, but damn if this isn’t gorgeous. Honestly, the next Batman movie should come from the guys who produce these cinematics because it’s…well, so cinematic! The animation, the fluidity, the action, the atmosphere, and everything combined together is really beautiful. And if the next Batman movie is done this way, that’d be a good way for them to get Kevin Conroy to voice Batman for a big Hollywood mainstream movie. Just sayin’ 😉

Batman: Arkham Origins teaser trailer

This. Is. Sexy. Look how gorgeous this is! Granted, Arkham cinematics tend to be gorgeous anyways, but it’s always a surprise to look at it again and bask in its beauty. I can only imagine that if Rocksteady was developing an Arkham game for next-gen, it would look like THIS.

Also, it seems like Deathstroke may be the primary antagonist in this game given how he is the most talked about villain so far, when referring to this game by the devs. I think it’ll be interesting how a less than seasoned Batman deals with a professional killer like Deathstroke. I mean, Batman will win of course, cause Batman, but…yeah.
