Deadshot Revealed As the Latest Villain to Head to ‘Arkham City,’ Alfred’s Going Too
Earlier this week the official Batman: Arkham City Twitter account promised a big reveal for GameTrailers TV to come on Thursday, September 15th. Fans, of course, began to immediately speculate on who the revealed character would be (I was personally pulling for Nightwing), and today the world finally gets to know the answer: the latest villain to head to Arkham City is none other than Deadshot. It’s definitely a solid edition to the game’s lineup of villains, which already includes the likes of Mr. Freeze, the Riddler, the Penguin, and Two-Face, and it’s one I’m rather excited for. Hit the jump for a quick interview with the game’s director, which reveals the new villain and tells us what role he’ll be playing in the game.
Sounds like it’ll be awesome, a lot like Deadshot’s appearance in Batman: Gotham Knight. But you know what’s also a very cool reveal, as he wasn’t announced anywhere nor has he been seen anywhere thus far? You can hear Alfred motherloving Pennyworth in the beginning on Batman’s radio. Alfred’s in the game, everybody!
