We hope to everyone’s Gods that this is just an Easter Egg, otherwise the new TV show will have demonstrated yet another gap in logic in its short existence.
During the latest preview trailer a map of Gotham is shown to include ‘Arkham City’.
One of three things has happened:
1- Cynical fanbase grab for the videogamer audience by including the name, but featuring something that bears little resemblance to the original.
2- They are actually going to do a Hugo Strange/Warden Sharp storyline that makes no sense since Batman isn’t there as a catalyst.
3- It’s just an Easter Egg and we can all relax.
Looking at the trailer, it’s unfortunately going to be number two.
Frankly, we think this is stupid. Batman Arkham is it’s own thing and Gotham should be too if it wants to work well.
What do you think?
