I wonder if catwoman is in it?

Who is willing to bet that there is Co-Op and switchable characters?!

Awesome. Co-op is an interesting take. As long as it's Robin, Nightwing ok too.

You said it, old chum!

(Actually, I hope that there isn't co-op or that it's completely optional.)

For the love of god and all that is holy:

NO co-op or multi-player.

For once, i agree with Einhander! The reason being that I actually like to challenge myself by getting the highest combo I can in the game. If I have a chum with me playing the game, they are a direct obstacle for me. I have to work around them and we all know that AIs are horrible and that team mates are adequate at best when you get good enough to want this kind of challenge. If there is a mode that allows for co-op that is just an option (that is that the main game is supposed to be played single player, bbuuuuuttt a buddy can join in if you want) and does not affect the storyline, then that's fine. I'm sure I'll enjoy it from time to time, but I want the option to enjoy the sequel in the same manor I enjoyed the first.

I'm 90% sure that the all-star cast of Mark Hamill (Joker), Kevin Conroy (Batman) and Dini (the writer) are returning for at least one more game. No word yet on who will be Catwoman. I bet it'll be some stock voice actor like Jen Taylor though. I hope the Scarecrow returns.

what the game does need is a character that can fight like batman as a boss, so that way you can counter the counters to counter to throw to batarang to grapple hook! come on, you know that would be fun. But no lame Bat senses when the game is on normal, I like it better when you have to be able to tell that they're going to attack a certain way and when to press it at the right moment like it was on Hard mode. Normal mode is way too easy.
