Sony announced the PS3 will have an exclusive Knightfall Batman: Arkham Origins pack.

Kevin Smith gave Entertainment Weekly three reasons why Ben Affleck probably chose to be Batman. Here's just one:

I live in Affleck's old house, and he built a panic room and the entrance was built to look like a Batcave entrance. It's a bookcase that you click a button and the bookcase slides back. He's the only guy I know that would go to do something like that. I asked him, "What did that cost to do?" He was like, "50 thousand bucks." I was like, "Worth every f–king penny, man." That's amazing! If you're going to have Pearl HarborArmageddon type money, build a f–king Batcave entrance in your house. So he's always loved the character.
