The cast of Batman: Arkham City is getting seriously large. Between Batman and Catwoman (and Robin, with pre-orders) as playable characters and an entire walled-off section of Gotham City turned into a prison for crime's elite baddies, we'll be seeing a lot of familiar faces when Rocksteady Studios' Batman: Arkham City arrives on October 18. Today we can confirm one more name: Deadshot.
The DC Universe supervillain is an assassin whose first comic book appearance was in Gotham as a vigilante crimefighter with hopes of replacing Bats. That doesn't go so well and Deadshot ends up in jail, eventually turning to a life of crime after being freed.
Deadshot's appearance in Arkham City was revealed on the latest episode of GameTrailers TV. He's not your typical inmate either; Deadshot is inside the mid-city prison with a list of names that he's looking to take out, for as-yet-unspecified reasons. You can bet that Batman will have to put his best efforts into figuring out what those reasons are.
