Paul Dini Interested in Writing Superman Game

Batman:
Arkham City
developer
Rocksteady has made the Batman video
game franchise a force to be reckoned with, but now they could have their eyes
set on another superhero – Superman. Paul Dini, writer for Arkham Asylum and the upcoming Arkham
City
, spoke to Yahoo Games recently about the future of DC superhero games,
and said I think it would be fun to do a character like Superman or Captain Marvel
or maybe Green Lantern…there’s a lot of reinvention being done on Superman at
the moment, both in the comics and in the movies and I think it would be fun to
revisit that character and kind of see what makes him tick.”
Because Batman is “real world-centric,” according to Dini, in his next
game Dini wants to amp it up a bit as far as the power level
goes and do more of a superhero with more superpowers.”

Rocksteady has yet to state their
plans after the release of Arkham City,
but they should certainly listen to the ideas that Dini might have. Dini was
also the writer for the animated Batman
and Superman series.  From his success with the Arkham games, a Superman game
based on Dini’s writing would certainly redeem the franchise after the horrific
Superman 64, which has cast its taint
on every Superman game released
since.
