Tof En iets over Joker Spoiler Fear plays a wider part in Arkham Knight's story now, too. The main antagonist is the eponymous Knight, a character created from scratch by Rocksteady in collaboration with DC, though further details are thin on the ground. In their absence, it's the return of Scarecrow that's the more tantalising proposition. There's no hope of a last-minute reprise for the Joker, who was seen off at the end of Arkham City ("The Joker is dead," insists Ginn, "dead and buried"), allowing for one of Gotham's more sinister, more playful villains to take centre stage. Rocksteady has already displayed an affinity with the character in Arkham Asylum's twisted set-pieces, and it'll be fascinating to see how it blends such misdirection into the broader, more open world of Arkham Knight.
