On the eve of release, Rocksteady has unveiled the launch trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight – and it’s a doozy.
Narrated by the dulcet tones of Jonathan Banks – of Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul fame – the sizzle reel is essentially a call to arms, with The Caped Crusader locking horns with a motley crew of villains that includes Harley Quinn, The Penguin, Two-Face and Poison Ivy. That cavalcade of enemies will be toplined by the return of Jonathan Crane’s Scarecrow, who will spearhead one last crusade against Bats in order to seize control of Gotham once and for all.
