Why Rocksteady's Arkham Trilogy Is Superior To Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy

Updated 14 Jun 2019 14.5k views14 items

Christopher Nolan’s trilogy of Batman movies is widely regarded as one of greatest comic book adaptations of all time. It's an impressive sentiment, especially when one considers the plethora of comic-based films in both the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC Extended Universe that have been released since Batman Begins in 2005. Yet, despite its commercial success and critical accolades, there are still inherent problems with the Dark Knight trilogy that even fan theories can't solve.

On the video game front, another adaptation of the Caped Crusader received an equal amount of praise, in the form of the Batman: Arkham series. The release of Batman: Arkham Asylum in 2009 shifted the gaming landscape, and created one of the only truly spectacular licensed franchises. You can even argue that Rocksteady Studios' adaptation of the World's Greatest Detective is actually superior to Nolan’s trilogy of films.
