Kid to Crime Fighter — Batman: Arkham Origins Trailer
Year One is among the finest Batman stories ever told, and I’m very curious how WB will adapt this tale of young Bruce Wayne learning the crime-fighting ropes in the upcoming Batman: Arkham Origins. If the latest CGI trailer is any indication, the game’s story will pack the requisite Bat punch.
Officially, this is the first TV spot for Arkham Origins, and it will begin airing on the 22nd, a few days before the October 25 launch. We’re special, so we get the trailer early. Take a gander:
Nicely done. Using Bruce’s face as the focal point and seeing it evolve over the years while maintaining the same steely resolve is a powerful way to quickly relate Batman’s origin story.
I’ve been critical of WB’s handling of Batman: Arkham Origins, and I fear it won’t hold up to the high standards set by Rocksteady, but at the very least they know what makes Batman Batman. Hopefully this trailer is a sign of good things to come.
