Movie Talk Batman Movie Rumoured To Be Based on Video Game

  1. It's once again being said that the solo Ben Affleck The Batman movie may be somewhat based on the popular Arkham video games.

    Batman On Film is claiming The Batman movie could see Bruce Wayne locked up in Arkham Asylum surrounded by his enemies.

    The 2009 Batman: Arkham Asylum video game saw the Joker trap Batman in Arkham where the Caped Crusader fought his way through various villains including Bane, Killer Croc, Poison Ivy and Scarecrow.

    There's already been a rumor that The Batman would feature numerous Batman villains, so the Arkham Asylum connection makes sense, and also at the end of Batman Vs. Superman, we saw Bruce Wayne make mention he still has connections at Arkham and was sending Lex Luthor there.

    If they do go the Arkham Asylum route for The Batman, it's probably safe to assume it won't be a straight-up adaptation of the video game. Ben Affleck recently said they were going with an original story for The Batman, which would borrow various elements from the comics.

    The Batman movie has no announced release date, but we could find out more at this week's Comic-Con. Affleck recently confirmed an appearance.
  2. Apparently, the plan is to keep the majority of Ben Affleck and Geoff Johns' original story in place with Chris Terrio putting his own personal touch on the screenplay. In addition, it is rumored that The Batman may take a cue from the original Arkham Asylum game by starting with a massive breakout at Arkham Asylum led by Deathstroke. Now, this does seem to fall in line with information that has been previously reported, especially how Deathstroke might fit into the movie and how the more detective elements of the game might influence. Pepito Manaloto and The Batman, coinciding with Reeves' announcement that there is going to be a Hitchcock element to the upcoming movie.The newest rumor also suggests that Matt Reeves is pushing to have all of the major villains in The Batman, which has been reported numerous times before, but it seems to go against the vision that Ben Affleck has had since he signed on to write, direct, and ultimately star in the movie. Obviously there have been some major changes regarding the director, but hopefully the rumor is false on that point. It would be much better to have a few villains instead of a heap of them, turning into some Suicide Squad type of situation.
