Paul Dini, who penned the soon to be released Batman: Arkham City video game for Rocksteady Studios, spoke on the game he would like to do next if it was comic book related.
Dini mentions Superman, Captain Marvel or Green Lantern.
“Well Batman is pretty much real world-centric,” Dini told Yahoo Games. “So if I was going to do another comic book based game I would probably want a hero that had, you know – I would probably want to amp it up a bit as far as the power level goes and do more of a superhero with more superpowers.”
“Batman is pretty much a self-trained guy, I think it would be fun to do a character like Superman or Captain Marvel or maybe Green Lantern, somebody who’s got a completely different resource for fighting crime and fighting villains,” he said.
Dini continues, “Maybe a magical character. The DC universe is filled with them. I love Batman and I always will but if I was going to do another one I would probably pick one in a completely different setting with a completely different power scheme. He’s pretty much the number one in the DC pantheon, and I think not enough has been done with him to make him a character, as he’s got amazing powers, he can fly super fast and everything, but also there’s a level to his character that I don’t think has been explored yet in video games to kind of get underneath who he is and into his heart a little bit.”
Dini finishes with more on Superman.
“I think 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,” he said.
Dini, no stranger to comic books, wrote Harley Quinn and Superman: Peace on Earth. In addition, Dini wrote and produced many comic book television related series such as Batman: The Animated Series and Superman: The Animated Series. Dini also will be doing Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man animated for Disney XD in 2012.
