Arkham Knight mod implements Christian Bale’s Batman moves

...but does he have the voice to match?

The number of Dark Knights in DC’s universe is beginning to contest with Marvel’s Multiverse of Spider-Men and the Bats are starting to spill over into different worlds.

We take a look at a recent Arkham Knight mod which has implemented Christian Bale’s movements from Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy into the game.

Christian Bale served as the Caped Crusader for the entirety of Nolan’s trilogy, with The Dark Knight quickly becoming the fan-favorite Batman film of all time. With the release of Matt Reeves’ The Batman, however, first place is still being debated.

Arkham Knight Mod

Modder and YouTuber LödedGarbage shared their latest mod with viewers for Arkham Knight, with the intent to make the game’s fighting style as accurate as possible to The Dark Knight trilogy.

The modder’s demonstration showed Batman throwing some heavy punches to a group of rooftop thugs, and masterfully dodging incoming bats to the head.

The community felt like this could be the gateway into more mods of this ilk for the game and, of course, someone requested a Robert Pattinson mod straight away and there were even a few people backing an Adam West moveset.

Christopher Nolan gave Batman a new lease of life

While Batman’s live-actions have targeted an older audience before, with Tim Burton’s adaptations in the 80s and 90s, Christopher Nolan’s version brought the character full circle after Joel Schumacher’s colorful shows.

Nolan injected politics and morality into his films to create a more serious tone, alongside the stunt work and gadgets which are always fun to witness in action. The second film also featured one of the best-crafted performances of the Joker by Heath Ledger.

Complete with a masterful score from Hans Zimmer, The Dark Knight trilogy has gone down in cinematic history, particularly The Dark Knight, which stands as one of the best comic book films of all time.
