Batman: Arkham Knight TV Spot Uses New Muse Track

Only one more week to go until Arkham Knight arrives.


Warner Bros. on Friday released a new trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight that will air on TV in the run up to the game's full release on June 23.

The video is set to the song "Mercy" from the rock band Muse's new album, Drones. The record has a theme not unlike Batman's personal journey, frontman Matt Bellamy said in a statement.

Drones “explores the journey of a human: from abandonment and loss of hope, to indoctrination by the system to be a human drone, to eventual defection from the oppressors," he said.
