New ‘Batman: Arkham Origins’ TV Spots Dabble In Tragedy, Comedy [Video]

Batman Arkham Origins TV Spot
WB Games Montreal

Batman is a character with many facets. On the one hand, he’s an orphan who witnessed his parents being gunned down in front of him, which led him to a lifelong crusade to do the impossible. On the other hand, he’s a guy who beats up thugs using car doors and that’s pretty funny.

These two new TV ads for WB Games Montreal’s Batman: Arkham Origins (one of which, we should note, is actually a Gamestop ad) aim to capture both of those sides to the character. Check ‘em out after the jump

 

 

 

Particularly curious are the moments in the first ad that show a teenage Bruce Wayne being bullied at a private school. I’m not the number-one authority on this, but I don’t recall that being mentioned in the comics much, if at all. (According to Chris Sims, he was bullied by a headmaster in Batman: Gothic. That’s about it.)

If that stuff’s actually in the game, it would appear that WB Games Montreal is trying to add to the Batman mythos with it. That’s ambitious.

Batman: Arkham Origins will be available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U and PC October 25.
