A number of newly registered domain names related to the Batman franchise have raised speculation about Warner Bros' plans in regards to the future of its Arkham video game franchise. One thing is clear, Warner Bros. isn't through with Arkham yet.
Domain manager MarkMonitor, which handles Warner Bros. properties, has registered a slew of Arkham-related sites, including "Arkham Universe," "Batman Arkham Arises" and "Batman Arkham Legends." There is no way to tell whether the domains pertain to films or video games, or even if Warner Bros was the company that registered the titles, since the domain holder is protected by a privacy service.
There are 15 domains in total, ranging from the standard fare listed above all the way to "DC Arkhamverse." There's no word if these relate to a film endeavor or a game, but considering the previous two Batman games from Warner Bros. were Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, it doesn't take the Dark Knight Detective to see that they fit the pattern.
In July last year, it was reported that the next game in Rocksteady Studios' Batman series will be a prequel detailing Batman's first encounter with the Joker, and based on the Silver Age of DC comics from the 1950s. Reports stated that the game is not expected to arrive until 2014. However, without Mark Hamill on board, it seems unlikely they'd follow a storyline that is primarily about the Joker.
