Thanks to this new comic release by DC called Suicide Squad: Kill Arkham Asylum, a lot of questions that were part of the Batman: Arkham Knight ending were finally answered. Arkham Knight ends with the supposedly dead Bruce Wayne, just after he was exposed as Batman. In the comic, you can see that Batman is working without any trouble, so this could mean that he just abandoned his life as Bruce Wayne. The hero is in the new Arkham Asylum helping to translate some new inmates, so he is working as normal as always.

While Batman brought Killer Croc to this new version of the Arkham Asylum, this character may be playable in the game sometime later. The Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has mentioned that it will have a roadmap of new content with many new characters to use later this year; the Joker is already confirmed.

I'm a big fan of movies and videogames in general. I really love Pokémon and Godzilla. One of my favorite games is The Last of Us, Part II. A compelling and well-written story is always welcome.
