Batman Reboot To Be Based Off Arkham Games?

Take this latest rumor with a grain of salt, although you might want to put this bit on a fat juicy New York steak.  The latest about “The Batman”, the working title for the dark knight’s latest solo film, is to be based off of Rocksteady’s popular and critically acclaimed Arkham games in tone and style.  If this turns out to be true, this is the smartest thing Warner Bros has decided on since hiring Nolan to revive Mr. B.  Since the public is already comfortable with the realistic tone of Batman, this would be the perfect thing to blend it with the more fanatical elements of the universe, and would likely go well with the Man of Steel universe should WB plan to go that route, but other rumors say different.  Man I would like some steak right now.

    This can be a good and bad game. Good because its a nice interpretation to batman. Bad because i am assuming they would start with arkham asylum but i dont know if running around arkham asylum between 2 hours and 2 hours and 30 minutes is going to be interesting enough. Anoter con is that these games are long and would be hard to condense into movie format.

    • im sure they will just pick elements they want and craft some stories up, not just a straight up carbon copy of the games
