To some, the Batman depicted at Rocksteady and WB Games Montreal’s batman arkham The franchise is the definitive iteration of the character. Whether it’s because of Kevin Conroy’s seminal work as a character, or because of the gameplay and characterization throughout batman arkham asylum, batman: arkham city, Batman: Arkham Originseither batman: arkham knight, there are many reasons why this Batman may be a fan favorite. Bruce Wayne experiences multiple changes to the game and characterization of him between each batman arkham delivery, showing some steady development.
It’s clear to see how the iteration of Batman compares between each game in the franchise, but it’s also interesting to see how Rocksteady’s Batman stacks up when compared to Bruce Wayne and the Batmen who have appeared in live-action movies. Apart from Lewis G. Wilson, Robert Lowery, Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer and George Clooney, the Arkham Batman intriguingly holds true to the modern live-action Batmen of the last three iterations of the character.
Rocksteady’s Batman Compared to Christopher Nolan’s Batman
by Nolan Batman Begins depicts Bruce Wayne’s origins as a caped crime fighter in Gotham City, and from his training in stealth and mixed martial arts under the tutelage of Henry Ducard, aka Ra’s al Ghul. In terms of tone and atmosphere, Batman Begins is more comparable to batman arkham asylum. This is a Batman who is stoic and collected, even though Nolan’s Batman just made his presence known as Batman before he was compromised by Scarecrow’s fear toxin. Each Batman experiences horrific imagery after being exposed to Scarecrow’s weaponized hallucinogen, making for some of the most memorable sequences in batman arkham asylum.
Batman doesn’t have much personality or characterization in batman arkham asylum beyond his insistence that Harley Quinn isn’t smart, while there’s more motivation and an inexperienced yearning to fight crime in Nolan’s iteration of the character. The aftermath of Batman Begins, The dark knight Y The dark knight rises, then concentrate their efforts on their portrayals of Heath Ledger’s Joker and Tom Hardy’s Bane, rather than Christian Bale’s Bruce Wayne. But as the sequels go on, so does Batman’s armor and technology.
This is repeated in batman arkham franchise too, where each game introduces a new device or feature to an existing device that improves traversal and combat. Nolan’s Bruce mourns Rachel Dawes and connects romantically with Anne Hathaway’s deceitful Selina Kyle, while Rocksteady’s Bruce is only portrayed as having a romantic interest in batman: arkham knight with Selina, whom he remains constantly uninterested in as she puts Gotham’s needs above her own. Nolan’s Batman, however, demonstrates a propensity for stealth that his live-action counterparts lack. This is probably the most succinct comparison of him to Rocksteady and WB Games Montreal’s Batman, who often resorts to gargoyle perches and other stealthy means of quietly subduing enemies, even with a nod to an inverted takedown on Batman Begins.
Rocksteady’s Batman vs. Zack Snyder’s Batman
snyder Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice depicts Bruce Wayne as a seasoned crime fighter of over 20 years in Gotham City, who has become more ruthless and violent in his pursuit of criminals since the arrival of Superman and the catastrophic destruction of Metropolis. Snyder’s Batman is much more emotional than Rocksteady’s Batman, who only shows emotion in Batman: Arkham Originsthe only game not developed by Rocksteady.
In terms of how Rocksteady’s Batman is portrayed in the game, the character’s ferocity is tempered with logical explanations for why Batman’s enemies aren’t killed in cases where they otherwise would be, such as batman: arkham knightThe Batmobile has an electrical charge that dispatches any enemies that come into contact with it, instead of just colliding with them. That said, there are a fair number of instances where Batman can throw an enemy off a roof or into a body of water that he doesn’t recover from thereafter.
That’s more of an idiosyncrasy with the game’s AI and gameplay than an indication of Batman’s ruthlessness. Snyder’s Batman purposefully marks petty criminals who will then be marked for murder in the general population of Blackgate. Also, Snyder’s Batman causes major destruction and death while in the Batmobile, as well as allowing mercenaries to blow up with grenades or set himself on fire with a flamethrower, so it’s clear he no longer cares if criminals die for his sake. hand or not It can be argued that Rocksteady and WB Games Montreal’s Batman share this nihilism, but the games themselves don’t seem to encourage that characterization. Instead, Snyder’s Batman is an exceptional strategist with combat experience who combines gadget efficiency with crowd control in tight spaces.
snyder batman vs superman It features the use of a grapple gun to lure an enemy in for a clothesline hit, a simple batarang throw, and a Disruptor pistol to sabotage enemy firearms. Each of these devices is used in batman: arkham knight to the same effect, and the dynamic way in which players can take down enemies is just as tactical and satisfying as the Snyder iteration of the character.
Rocksteady’s Batman vs. Matt Reeves’ Batman
reeves’ the batman it depicts Bruce Wayne as a lonely insomniac whose existence is completely subsumed by his vigilante persona. the batman is more comparable to Batman: Arkham Origins for multiple reasons, the least of which is that Batman was established as a vigilante in his formative years and without many established supervillains, but without the need for a rehashed origin story of how Bruce’s parents were killed.
Reeves’ Batman has a close and trusting relationship with police lieutenant Jim Gordon, while the rest of the GCPD doesn’t share his enthusiasm for the vigilante. This relationship is extensively tested in Batman: Arkham Originswhere Batman and Gordon have a tumultuous relationship at first and Bruce experiences perhaps the most distinct personality changes and development in the franchise as he learns to trust Gordon and the GCPD, enlisting their help in stopping the Joker.
Perhaps the most distinctive difference between Reeves’ Batman and Rocksteady’s Batman is that the former is essentially bulletproof, while the latter is incredibly susceptible to gunshots. Like Snyder’s Batman, Reeves’ Batman is also well-versed in crowd control, where the character performs counter parries that closely resemble the parry mechanics of Rocksteady and WB Games Montreal.
Reeves’s Batman introduces the sliding of ropes as a method of wingsuit traversal, which is much more elemental than the sliding of ropes that Lucius Fox introduced in Batman Begins, and their devices are also generally more rudimentary. It will be interesting to see how well the latest iteration of Batman will play out in the batmanThe sequel to , and if there are any other surprising comparisons with Rocksteady and WB Games Montreal batman arkham the franchise will become apparent.
