Gotham Knights is an upcoming action role-playing game that will give fans the keys to explore Gotham in unprecedented detail as one of Bruce Wayne’s trusted companions. Developed by WB Games Montreal, the game has garnered huge attention as players are excited to see the antagonist lineup of Gotham Knights.

Gotham Knights will present the fight of DC heroes after the death of Bruce Wayne, aka Batman, and James Gordon. As Gotham fills with villains, players will team up as the protagonists and attempt to save the city before it’s too late.

We already know that Nightwing, BatGirl, Robin, and Red Hood will be on the side of good, but which villains are likely to appear from Batman’s rogue gallery? If you need a refresher on characters, ExpressVPN’s infographic helps detail Batman’s most famous antagonists.

Potential Gotham Knights Villains

The possibility of Joker being the most prominent villain has been denied, and his involvement as an antagonist in the game is unknown, which leaves the door wide open for other villains to play more prominent roles.

Let’s take a look at the possible Gotham Knight villain lineup:

  • The Court of owls
  • Two-Face
  • Freeze
  • Bane
  • Penguin
  • Joker
  • Riddler
  • Hush
  • Ra’s Al Ghul
  • Clayface
  • Poison Ivy
  • David Cane
  • Deathstroke
  • Killer Croc
  • Anarky

Let’s explore Gotham Knights and what villains we will likely see in the upcoming game.

Court Of Owl | Gotham Knights Villains

The organization is primarily known for creating possessed assassins called Talons and might be responsible for Bruce Wayne’s murder. The Court of Owls is a powerful antagonist as it features rich people working together to influence the city politically.

It’s been revealed that The Court of Owls will be the main antagonist in Gotham Knights. There is also a possibility that they’ll be controlling other villains and be the ultimate law amongst the villains. Their appearance in Gotham Knights is their long-awaited debut appearance in a video game!

Two-Face | Gotham Knights Villains

Two-Face is a former District Attorney who worked alongside Bruce Wayne but suffered horrendous injuries leaving him with a split personality. He’s been a regular villain in previous Batman iterations, and there’s a tragic element to his existence every time.

The character arc of Two-Face makes for an interesting hook, and he will likely be a part of the Gotham Nights villain lineup. It will be interesting to see the former DA fighting the protagonist, and he could probably reveal Bruce Wayne’s alternate identity during the game.

Mr. Freeze | Gotham Knights Villains

Mr. Freeze is a former scientist whose body mutated to sub-zero levels during a lab accident. The man became a cold-blooded villain after the loss of his terminally ill wife in the same accident.

It is already confirmed that Mr. freeze will be a part of the Gotham Nights antagonists. Even though Mr. Freeze has always worked solo, fans are excited to see the man potentially work with the Court of Owls, or he might even become a part of one of the five factions looking to seize Gotham.

Bane | Gotham Knights Villains

Bane is one of the crueler villains of DC. After Bane mutated into a person with superhuman strength from an experiment with a super-steroid, he rose up the criminal world and has the esteemed reputation of being known as “the man who broke the Bat.”

If Bane becomes a part of the Gotham Knights lineup, it will create an amazing fighting arc for players. Since Bane is known for his superhuman strength, he could be in one of the five factions in Gotham Knights. The chances of Bane being a part of the game are pretty high, but we don’t know whether he’ll have a prominent role or not.

Penguin | Gotham Knights Villains

Recently portrayed by Colin Farrell, the Penguin is expected to appear once more in the Batman universe. As a prominent figure in all Arkham games, he will likely be leading his goons to capture Gotham. Penguin became a villain because he was heavily teased for his bulky, short, and bird-like features.

It is already revealed that Penguin will be a part of Gotham Knights alongside The Court of Owls and Mr. Freeze. It is heavily possible that Penguin will be the leader of one faction in the game, or he could also be shown as a pawn under The Court of Owls. We hope that the developers have designed a fun and challenging boss level for the crime boss this time.
