The man behind the script for Rocksteady’s next superhero adventure Batman: Arkham City, a sequel to the 2009 hit video game Batman: Arkham Asylum, reveals which superheroes he would like to give a new video game adaption to. So take a gander at who Paul Dini what the three big name DC Comic superheroes Paul Dini would like to turn into a video game next…
The legendary Paul Dini has worked on everything superhero related, whether it be the comics or the animated television shows in movies, Dini has left his mark. Now he is working on video games, his latest being this month’s upcoming Batman: Arkham City. Now speaking to Gig Wise, Dini reveals a list of three superheroes he hopes to make video game adaptions for next:
“Well Batman is pretty much real world-centric. So if I was going to do another comic book based game I would probably want a hero that had, you know – I would probably want to amp it up a bit as far as the power level goes and do more of a superhero with more superpowers.
Batman is pretty much a self-trained guy, I think it would be fun to do a character like Superman or Captain Marvel or maybe Green Lantern, somebody who’s got a completely different resource for fighting crime and fighting villains.”
Dini went into extra detail about Superman, and why he thinks the character has earned the right of passage to a good video game adaption:
“I think there’s a lot of reinvention being done on Superman at the moment, both in the comics and in the movies and I think it would be fun to revisit that character and kind of see what makes him tick.”
Be sure to catch Dini’s work when Batman: Arkham City is released on XBox 360 and PS3 on October 21, with the game coming to PC in November.
