Blockbuster games like Batman: Arkham City, Batman: Arkham Knight and Batman: Arkham Asylum showed that Batman could rule the gaming world, as he does the movie world. Then, why should Superman be left behind?
Well, rumor has it that Rocksteady Studios had pitched a Superman game to Warner Bros., but they passed on the project. According to leaker James Sigfield, it was supposed to be a follow up to Arkham Knight featuring the Man of Steel. In his tweet, he included a picture which looks like a concept art for the pitch. Check it out:

Judging how similar this feels to the “New Gotham” section of Arkham Knight, this could be for that. pic.twitter.com/RKIE6ugKSP

There have been rumors swirling around about a Justice League game, another Batman game and now, a Superman game. None of these are confirmed because there is no official announcement about what Rocksteady is actually currently working on. But fans of the franchise need not be completely disheartened though, because it is still a rumor and not an official cancellation. We are hopeful that we might get to see a Superman title from Warner Bros. someday. Until then, our wait continues.
