Copperhead Joins Batman: Arkham Origins In This New Trailer

By Ishaan . July 18, 2013 . 3:30pm

As previously detailed, Batman: Arkham Origins takes place on Christmas Eve in Gotham City, and is set early in Batman’s career. Black Mask, none too happy with Batman’s existence, has hired eight of the world’s best assassins to kill him.



Some of these assassins we already know about—Deathstroke, Deadshot and Bane. The fourth, Warner Bros. revealed this afternoon, is Copperhead.  You can watch a trailer featuring her above. Yes, her. It would seem Copperhead in Arkham Origins is female, like in DC’s “New 52” relaunch.


Batman: Arkham Origins will be released on October 25th worldwide for PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U.


Slight correction: Bane has been revealed in the past as well. Thanks to Solomon Kano for pointing this out.

    Copperhead’s actually the 4th assassin. The 3rd was Bane.

    I wonder if we’ll actually get to fight her? One thing I had to lament about Rocksteady’s games was never getting to fight Bats-size enemies hand to hand. That’d be pretty cool.

    Also, unless the Arkham universe’s order is different, Barb is in.

    • grayson gee

      This isn’t being made by Rocksteady. They got another company to make this installment.

      • Solomon_Kano

        I know. I said I lamented that in Rocksteady’s games, which is why I’m wondering if it’ll be different here since this isn’t one of theirs.

    • Oh, now that would be interesting. Seeing him take Barb on as a partner before Dick.

      I kind of wish they would do more exciting things with the DLC for the Batman games, though. Like, instead of having something like Harley’s Revenge, it would be awesome if they made a “Year Three” DLC that fast-forwards to one year after the game’s events.

      • Solomon_Kano

        Yea, according to an interview with IGN she’ll solely be Barb, so it looks like Robin still comes first.

        That’d be a really good direction to go with the DLC. I hope we see more of that variety, unless they plan to fill out with more playable characters like AC (though I really don’t know what other villains they could go for).

        • I wouldn’t mind more playable characters, but it kind of sucks when they’re just Challenge levels and not integrated into the story…

          • Solomon_Kano

            Yea, was a gripe I had as well. It especially sucked since they took the time out to integrate Catwoman’s portions, however few, into the story in AC. Having Nightwing playable when he wasn’t even so much as referenced was kinda stupid.

            So hopefully Montreal does that for any characters they include (though I doubt Deathstroke will be playable in course of the story).

  • Brion Valkerion

    Was not excited for this game but the line up of villains is really catching my interest.

  • ThunderGod_Cid

    Ah, new-52 Copperhead eh?

    • Solomon_Kano

      It actually isn’t the New 52 Copperhead. While the New 52 Copperhead is also female, she’s an actual snake thing.

      • Scrooge_McDuck

        Whuh, That’s female? How do we determine that?

        • Solomon_Kano

          We take her at her word, I guess lol.

          • Scrooge_McDuck

            Sooo, after digging around: the New 52 Copperhead is actually male. All those gaming news websites stating that he’s female are wrong. Female Copperhead is Batman: Origins original (ha).

            Though apparently DC likes her very much that they’re thinking of actually introducing her to New 52 in the future.

            Yea, useless trivia of a pretty old topic. I was just really bothered by it. Haha.

          • Solomon_Kano

            Huh. Now him wearing pants but no top makes so much more sense lol.

            Okay. Yea, I was confused since I’d read on another site that Copperhead was female but Geoff Johns also wanted to add this Copperhead to the New 52, so thanks for clearing that up.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    She kicked his ass.

  • Minos

    You know girl, you could have cut his mask with those claws and/or take his DNA to a lab…

  • she looks so freaking amazing!

  • DCBlackbird

    huh…. what an unexpected choice……

  • colorblindnightmare

    Nice. Every reveal makes this higher on my want gauge. so much higher.
