Another potential character may have been hinted for "Batman Arkham Knight" on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. According to a report from Gameranx on May 1,the Dee Bradley Baker may be lending his voice in the upcoming multiplatform video game. The voice actor previously appeared in "Batman Arkham City" as Ra's al Ghul.

Dee Bradley Baker was also part of the cast for the "Gears of War, " "Halo" "Portal" and "Spider Man" gaming franchisse. Finally he could be heard in several animated television shows as well as "Son of Batman" movie, in which he played Man-Bat. According to an update from his IMDB profile, he is reprising the same role in "Batman Arkham Knight."

Batman could be able to meet the original Man-Bat, who is a scientist going by the name of Dr. Kirk Langstrom. The doctor used an extract from bats on himself in an attempt to cure his hearing issues. Although the experiment was successful, the side effects transform him into a berserk bat. Alternatively, Batman may encounter many bat creatures of the new bat-like enemy type. In the aforesaid "Son of Batman" movie, the extract was used on members of the League of Assassins.

Along with the rumored Man-Bat, "Batman Arkham Knight" also features Harley Quinn, Penguin, Riddler, Scarecrow and Two-Face as villains. You can find a screen showing some of the antagonists in the upcoming title from the official "Batman Arkham" Facebook page with the photo attached near the top side of this article. To fight off the baddies, Batman will be enlisting the help of James Gordon and his daughter, Barbara, who will be referred to as Oracle.

"Batman Arkham Knight" was previously rumored to be delayed until 2015. Fortunately, the rumor was later clarified to be false as the video game is currently expected to arrive later this fall. A few notable retailers are listing an Oct. 14 release date for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One versions of the open-world comic book hero video game.
