Batman: Arkham Knight will feature the return of many beloved villains and allies from the previous games, as well as some new faces. So far it’s been confirmed that Two-Face, Penguin, Harley Quinn, Riddler, and Scarecrow will be returning in the game in some capacity, either major or minor. Among the returning characters are some of Batman’s allies like Oracle and Jim Gordon. The question remains though; what other characters will be returning, or will be introduced for the first time? Batman’s rogues gallery is so massive that after three games, it’s hard to keep track of them all, much less have them all appear in one game. There are still a few less major rogues that have yet to pop up, but it appears that even more characters are starting to be confirmed.
Arkham Origins introduced or reintroduced a lot of characters to the Arkham series of games, and showcased some more minor villains from the previous games in the series like Deadshot. Already an alumni of two of the previous games in the series, Deadshot has been confirmed to return for the fourth game. Along with confirmation of Deadshot, it was also confirmed that newcomer to the series, Man-Bat, will be in the game via a list of voice actors for the game. Man-Bat will be voiced by Dee Bradley Baker, whom you might remember was the voice of Ra’s Al Ghul in Batman: Arkham City. Still unconfirmed are the rest of the familiar rogues like Bane, Mr. Freeze, Hush, and other villains who had plot lines left hanging from Arkham City, but I’m sure we’ll be hearing about those very soon.
