Gotham Knights May Get a Comic Book Tied to a Great Batman Team
There hasn’t been any solid news on Gotham Knights since the ‘Court of Owls’ faction trailer hit DC Fandome last October, but a leak from a popular Batman artist suggests the game may be getting a boost. related comic of a similar sort to other superhero games – and from the creators of the Court of Owls, no less.
Artist Greg Capullo and writer Scott Snyder have worked together on several occasions, including a popular run on Batman comics from around 2011 to 2016. Most notably, they are the creators of the Court of Owls, the villainous organization that will play an important role in Gotham Knights.
Scott Snyder has already been confirmed to be working with developer WB Montreal on the game, but now it appears that Greg Capullo is also working on a Gotham Knights project. Capullo tweeted artwork of Batgirl and Nightwing he’s working on, and fans were quick to notice that their designs were clearly Gotham Knights. Capullo deleted the tweet, but a photo of Nightwing in the same style is still on his Instagram page.
Scott Snyder recently wrote for a Fortnite/Batman crossover comic, so it’s entirely possible he’s the author of this Gotham Knights tie-in comic. DC/Warner Bros. has had plenty of success with comics based on Injustice, Batman: The Telltale Series, Mortal Kombat, and the Batman Arkham games, so it seems likely that Gotham Knights will get one too.
According to a now-deleted tweet, artist Greg Capullo is working on something related to #GothamKnights. If I had to guess, like many other superhero video games, it’s kind of a comic book tie-in. pic.twitter.com/1JrMdpeLCj

As for when Gotham Knights will release, it’s still down for 2022, though Warner Bros may be planning its other major Hogwarts Legacy game for September, so it probably won’t be there then. WB Montreal is already apparently hard at work on its next game, so it surely can’t be far.
