Batman: Arkham Knight ‘Be The Batman’ Trailer released

Have you ever wanted to be the Batman?



Batman: Arkham Knight - Screen 4

Have you ever wanted to be the Batman?

I did. And when I was eight I had some rather natty Batman pyjamas. They were more Adam West than Christian Bale but I’m proud to say that I kept my household free of crime and villainy for many years.

Warner Bros. have tapped into those man-child fantasies with a new live action trailer for the upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight game.


Directed by Tim Cronenweth and Jeff Cronenweth (director of photography for Gone Girl and Fight Club), with Trent Reznor serving as music consultant, Be The Batman features The Wretched by Nine Inch Nails and showcases everyday people being determined, courageous and fearless as they rise to become the Batman.

If only they had asked me. I still have those jimjams somewhere.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
