Rocksteady has been adamant since day one that Batman: Arkham Knight will be their final Batman game, which really begs the question, what’s next for them? Could it be… Superman?
That’s not just idle speculation, Arkham Knight is just lousy with Superman-related easter eggs.
The biggest (literally) and most obvious one has got to be the LexCorp tower. LexCorp of course is owned by Lex Luthor, Superman’s archenemy.
That’s not the only Lex reference in the game though, here is a billboard discovered by Arekkz Gaming.
And Lex himself gets a voice cameo, leaving a message on Bruce Wayne’s private line (via CabooseXBL).
As far as the Man of Steel himself goes, he obviously doesn’t appear in the flesh, but he is referenced numerous times.
Like this Thug’s off-handed mention:
Or this guy, who doesn’t think Batman is very scary.
Finally, here’s a direct reference to Metropolis itself (the “Fly To Metropolis” slogan itself is particularly tantalizing).
And those are just the ones fans have found so far.
So what do you think? Could Rocksteady be heading “to Metropolis” next?
