I get the Hal Jordan suit, hell i almost get the Aquman one.

But why in hell does Superman needs an armour and why Batman looks like Ironman?

@DeathpooltheT1000: They're going to space. All of them have a helmet. I suspect its a space outfit. Also he is wearing armour all over already.

How does Batman look like Ironman again? Its almost identical to the movie version and injustice and arkham city. Nothing you've never seen before.

Isn't this concept art for Injustice: Gods Among Us? But if I'm wrong that's very good news. Rocksteady making a Justice League game is just what the doctor ordered. Quite a big step up from Batman to the Justice League though I have to say.

@Lvenger: Thats what people were speculating initially. Until Variety revealed that Rocksteady is having its own game which make sense that the concept art is for this game instead. Because there are several characters that doesn't look like the Injustice characters.

@sethysquare: Cool then this is very good news. Rocksteady should be able to do justice (excuse the pun) to a Justice League game. Though aside from the two Batman games and this, they've only made one other game. As much as I want them to continue making a Batman game and Justice League game, shouldn't they develop more games than that? They're a talented studio that could make some great games.

The first article talk about how every division of Time Warner will be promoting the New 52 Justice League. Sorry Martian Manhunter fans--I can't see him in a Justice League film anymore ;-P

@sethysquare: One thing is a light armour like Nolanverse Batman and other is a heavy armour like that one.

I'll give Rocksteady a shot, I'm gonna remain skeptic about my reaction but it might grow on me the way Nolan's Bane has.

Yeah... Don't get me wrong, I loved the Arkham games... But I can't see this ending well. And that'll be a shame.

I was ready for more Batman right after I finished Arkham City. But, if there's anyone I would trust with literally any superhero video game, it's Rocksteady. If this is true, I look forward to it. Also, it'll give them good practice on the new consoles before going all out with a new Batman game.

Don't care for the designs, but I can get behind this! I kind wish they'd make a Superman game before moving on to Justice League, but hey at least he'll be playable.

Oops, I just made a thread about this -_- My bad.

Yeah, this is a little odd to me, but I'm very optimistic that Rocksteady's involved. About time they get the other superheroes in there.

Edit: Just checked out the concepts. Aquaman! :D I'm not really digging the costume designs though... They're very bulky >.>

I think this could potentially be the best game ever in comic book history (considering how great arkham series was)

Totally. I wonder how the gameplay will be though. In team games, they usually go for an MUA-type style.

@Gambit1024: I believe they would use Arkham City's format. I totally dig the outfits though, seeing that most of them are sketches with muscles and skeletons drawn. They probably wont end up as the final costume. I was hoping they could get together because of an Alien Invasion. That has always been a DC thing.

Bit of a bold statement to make all things considered. There are a lot of elements to fit in and what worked with Rocksteady for a Batman game might be difficult to accomadate to a Justice League game. However if ever there was a studio to make a Justice League game, Rocksteady is it.

As long as I get to fly as Superman, run as Flash, and be badass as Aquaman, the format they use will be just fine with me, lol. I wonder who the main villain will be. Darkseid perhaps?

Hells yes a JL game would be awesome if done properly and since its in the hands of rocksteady there no problem of it being bad. That said this and injustice an not forgeting lego batman 2 are probely the closest Superman fans are going to get in tearms of good games featuring the man of steel.

I wouldn't rule that out just yet.

In the concept art I see Armor. Too much armor. What's with developers these days? In the game "Injustice God among Us" the J.L.A. wear armor. Some heroes don't need them (Like Superman he's the Man of Steel). Basically, they look like a reflection of IronMan just with different attributes and colors. That's not good for me.

However, the thing I liked about the concept art was the full armor mask of Aqua Man and Green Lantern, but I don't see how they need it since both can breath fine in their "hometown" (underwater and space).

Despite little-to-no information on the game, I'm actually very excited to see its full announcement. Rocksteady is able to create a great game as evident by Batman: Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. It's disappointing that the Martian Manhunter might not be in the game.

I'm not sure if this is concept art for the Arkham prequel, it doesn't look like the Silver Age.

@TheAntiReVamp: its the silver age story of how they got together as justice league. but it will be set in a few years before arkham asylum.

But why in hell does Superman needs an armour.

Agreed, I mean, isn't his new 52 outfit already alien armor?
