New ‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ Screenshots Deliver More Oracle, Commissioner Gordon, And Batmobile Launching

Batman: Arkham Knight screenshot

As Batman: Arkham Knight, the next entry in the popular video game franchise about Batman beating the criminally insane into submission in asylums of increasingly improbable sizes and complexity, draws nearer, we're starting to get to the point where we're getting a steady stream of information about the game. Today, with the release of a new set of screenshots, we got some of the most interesting news of all.

According to the latest screens, after appearances as a voice in a headset in the past three games, Barbara Gordon will finally be appearing as Oracle. That's big news for fans fans, but to be honest, that stuff about the Batmobile shooting you out of the roof like James Bond's ejector seat will probably have a bigger impact on gameplay.

It didn't even get to 52.

‘Robin Rises: Omega’ Could Mean The Return Of Damian Wayne

Robin Omega 1 main

If the preview images for DC Comics' new Robin Rises: Omega one-shot, which hits stores July 16, indicate what it looks like they're indicating, then Damian Wayne's comic-book death will have lasted just a bit less than 17 months.

The writer of the book, Peter J. Tomasi, wouldn't tell Hero Complex exactly which Robin is returning, but since almost every other Robin seems to be alive, well, and doing other things (with the exception of Stephanie Brown, who's in sort of a gray area), Damian seems to be the prime suspect, especially considering that Ra's al Ghul plays a major role in the one-shot.

Scott Snyder On ‘Batman: Zero Year – Dark City’: The ComicsAlliance Interview, Part Two

Batman: Zero Year by Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo, Danny Miki and FCO Plascencia

In the pages of Batman, Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo, Danny Miki and FCO Plascencia are retelling the origin of Batman for the modern DC Universe with "Zero Year." Told over the course of a year, "Zero Year" is divided in to three arcs, each representing a facet of Gotham City and Batman's growth into a superhero, and it's been wild right from the start. For each arc, ComicsAlliance is going in-depth with Snyder to find out more about how the story came together and what these elements mean, and with "Dark City" finishing just a few weeks ago, it's time once again for our conversation to resume.

In the second part of our interview (you can read the first part here), Snyder and I discuss Batman's relationship with Jim Gordon, the Riddler's role as Batman's first major foe, and just why he has those mutton chops.

DC Releases ‘Futures End’ Teaser Featuring All Your Favorite Canceled Superheroes

Future's End teaser, DC Comics

Over the past few years, DC has fallen into the practice of dropping a "Teaser Image" for their upcoming major storyline every few months, and they really do the job. They're intriguing, and when readers see them, they get to talking about what all these pieces could mean, without ever really going back to see if anything panned out. It's a win for everyone

The last one we got was a Batman/First Thanksgiving-themed piece that hinted at the events of Batman Eternal -- which sounds really weird when you actually type it, but which definitely happened -- and now, we have an Escher-inspired tease at what might be happening in the upcoming Futures End event, specifically The New 52: Futures End #0, which is due out for Free Comic Book Day this May 3.  Have a look at the full-sized image below!

Check Out The First Half-Hour Of The New ‘Arkham Origins’ DLC, ‘Cold, Cold Heart’ [Video]

Batman Arkham Origins Cold Cold Heart DLC

Remember how a big chunk of the game map was frozen and icy in Arkham City? The new DLC for Batman: Arkham Origins"Cold, Cold Heart" extends that idea a bit, with the ice seemingly extending throughout the city as Penguin and Mr. Freeze terrorize the landscape on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC (but not the Wii) on April 22.

A leaked video reveals the first half hour of the DLC, the first Arkham DLC that actually adds single-player, storyline-driven gameplay instead of challenge packs and multiplayer maps. Much of it takes place in Wayne Manor as Bruce Wayne charges to the Batcave to pick up his batsuit. (Another toyetic iceproof costume shows up later.)

Today, in the first part of our interview, Snyder discusses the return of Dr. Death, why he wanted to pay homage to Frank Miller's Year One and Dark Knight Returns while at the same time breaking away from them as much as possible, and why "Dark City" was the most challenging part of the story to write.
