It looks like the upcoming ‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ will be getting a novelization written by veteran comic book writer Marv Wolfman.
Announced via Wolfman’s Facebook, the writer has been working hard on the novelization for quite some time. However, as of writing, Wolfman’s post announcing the news has since been taken down. Below is what Wolfman had initially posted:
“Well, I can finally tell folk what I’ve been working on these past months in total secrecy, even from my dog. I wrote the official novelization for ARKHAM KNIGHT, based on the upcoming video game, and had a ball doing it. The story is highly emotional and I’m exceedingly happy with the results. Both game and book come out in July (Note: The game is actually scheduled to release on June 2). I’ll post the cover here once it’s official. Anyway, whew, it feels great finally being able to talk about it. My dog is happy, too. I no longer have to keep throwing her out of my office while I’m working.”
Outside of announcing that he had written the novelization of ‘Batman: Arkham Knight,’ Wolfman didn’t reveal any other details about the novel.
If you aren’t familiar with Wolfman, he has been deeply involved with the DC Universe in the past, having served as the writer for the DC crossover event ‘Crisis On Infinite Earths’ in 1985, and also having had a run on the ‘New Teen Titans’ comic back in the early 80s as well.
Developed by Rocksteady Studios, ‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ is the final chapter of the ‘Arkham’ series of action-adventure games. It takes place several months after the events of ‘Arkham City’ and follows the continuing adventures of Batman, who must stop the infamous Scarecrow from fulfilling a plot to unite all of Gotham City’s criminals under a single banner to eliminate him on Halloween night. However, on top of the threat posed by Scarecrow, Batman must also deal with a new mysterious villain known as the Arkham Knight, who has also stepped up to the plate to do battle with him.
‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ will be heading to Xbox One, PS4 and Windows PC on June 2.
