The Solo Batman Is Not Set Entirely In Arkham Asylum

Batman Solo Movie Arkham Asylum

If you ask any superhero fan what the greatest Batman game is, they’ll probably just direct you towards the entire Arkham series. Every game in that series is phenomenal, and a fairly accurate representation of what it’s like in the day of the Bat himself. While Arkham City is the game most tend to love the most, fans of the franchise still have a special place in their heart for the game that started it all- Arkham Asylum.

Set in the rusty and very clearly not up to code hallways of the Arkham Asylum, Gotham’s one-stop supervillain supermarket, Batman: Arkham Asylum saw Batman trying to foil the Joker’s evil plan. The Clown Prince of Crime sets all of the inmates, including several A-list Batman rogues free, wreaking havoc on the Asylum and its guards.

The game was an instant success, players loved controlling the Caped Crusader in an action-adventure-mystery game that actually felt like being Batman! With the popularity of the game, it only makes sense for DC to take it and adapt if for the big screen, right? Well, that’s what we hoped was happening when the rumor spread that the solo Batman film would be set in the fabled Asylum.

Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be the case. Our EIC recently tweeted out a scoop for Batman Day today, debunking the rumor.

Of course, this doesn’t necessarily rule out the possibility of Arkham Asylum showing up in the solo Batman movie, it just means the film won’t be set entirely in the facility. On one hand, it’s a shame that we won’t be getting the Arkham Asylum film adaption we wanted. On the other hand, this means we’ll get to see more of Gotham City, and that’s a setting I can’t wait to see “Batfleck” gliding around in.

    Man, C’mon. Don’t do that. Of course it does not rule out the possibility that the movie does not take place in Arkham at all. Don’t do this kind of click bait article writing.

  • Jason Scarpelli

    If the film took place in Arkham the entire way through it would be boring. Great to hear this.

    • Seb

      Not seen Die Hard or Dredd or The Raid? Single locations can work

      • Vegas82

        And technically speaking none of those took place entirely in one location.

      • Jason Scarpelli

        Depends on the film.

    • Takaruichi

      it would have not been borring but it would have been the same problem that we have in most of the arkham game: not seeing gotham…

      • SAMURAI36

        You see plenty of Gotham in the Arkham games. However, the name of the games are “Arkham”, so even if you didn’t, you can’t blame them for it.

      • Fenix

        You see Gotham in City, Origins & Knight.

      • Jason Scarpelli

        You can be in Gotham as long as you want just gliding and beating up bad guys.


    I’m surprised that rumor got the traction it did. It sounded bogus from the onset, IMO.
