Rocksteady, the makers of the hit game: Arkham City, developing a Batman game that will feature some of the Justice League members.
DC may be having trouble tackling the movie market with any superhero besides Batman, but they seem to have a better plan of attack in the video game world. Interestingly enough, two videogames featuring the Justice League are riding in on Batman's cape: Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes just launched in June and Rocksteady is developing a new Batman game that will feature several of the Justice League. This is in addition to a fighting game featuring the DC heroes due out next year: Injustice: Gods Among Us.
Rocksteady is the studio that developed Batman: Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, both extremely successful games both on the business side and with hardcore fans. The new title will focus on Batman's first encounter with the Joker and be set during the period where he founds the Justice League with Superman, Wonder Woman and other DC heroes.
With no other announcements about the product at recent gaming conventions such as E3, the game is probably still in development stage and won't be out until 2014 at the earliest.

Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea. Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California. When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead. Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim. If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: www.jeremyshane.info for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
