It was the question on everyone’s lips back in 2015: what comes after Batman: Arkham Knight?
Rocksteady’s acclaimed video game was the third and final chapter in its beloved Batman series, but with E3 2018 now quickly approaching, there’s a great deal of speculation surrounding the studio’s next title.
A full-blown Justice League project was name-dropped as a possible contender early on, but the hottest rumor at the moment – and one that refuses to die down – is that Rocksteady’s latest game involves the Man of Steel. Apparently, the full reveal will take place during Microsoft’s E3 2018 press conference, but ahead of that, a poster has made its way online and while we can’t verify if it’s authentic just yet, it seems to be for the project in question.
As you can see down below, it shows off something called Superman: World’s Finest, which might actually indicate that Batman will appear in the game as well. But let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves. For now, you can check out the poster in the gallery and see whether or not you think it’s real.

Of course, this is far from the first leak pointing to a Superman game being in development. As we said above, it’s been rumored forever now and just the other day, we heard that the title will build on the close-quarters combat system introduced in Arkham Asylum (no surprise there) and feature Brainiac as the main villain. Other DC characters – namely The Flash, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Hawkman, Aquaman, and Martian Manhunter – will then be introduced as DLC, though it’s unclear as yet if they’ll be playable like the Man of Steel, who may well be voiced by Tim Daly.
And perhaps most intriguing of all? It’ll supposedly lay the foundation for a full-blown Justice League crossover to be released in 2020. Could there be any truth to all this, though? We’ll find out once Microsoft’s E3 presentation begins Sunday, June 10th, at 1 pm PT (4 PM ET / 9 PM BST), at which point we’ll be keeping one ear to the ground just in case Rocksteady’s long-rumored Superman game is in attendance.
