There's a Mystery DC Superhero Game Coming in 2012

In an interview with the LA Times, Warner Bros.' Martin Tremblay, president of the company's video games division, gets to talking about their "tent-pole strategy", based around big, quality games.

Tremblay of course name-drops Batman: Arkham City, and another Warner hit of 2011, Mortal Kombat, but near the end of the interview mentions something interesting. Talking about the publisher's 2012 lineup, he says that alongside a Hobbit game and LEGO Batman sequel, Warner will also be releasing "a game featuring a superhero from Warner's DC Comics unit" that the president would not name.

I mean, the obvious guess would be Superman, but then, for me that's too obvious. There's already a Superman movie in production, due out in 2013, so something based around that would hardly need the veil of secrecy. And besides, it's not like these Batman games have been based (or even timed) around movies, so it could be anyone.

So I'm going to spend the time between now and the project's reveal pretending it's an Aquaman game. It'll be like BioShock. With beards.
