With Origins being a prequel it does lead to numerous possibilities about who will feature in the game, something Warner Bros are keeping close to their chest at this stage. They did however state that it will be taking place before the rise of Gotham City’s most dangerous criminals. This could indicate that we are unlikely to see The Joker in this title, especially as Mark Hammill having stated that Arkham City would be his last representation of the Prince of Crime.batman-arkham-origins
