The Riddler was a insane psychopath in Arkham Asylum.
People seem to be forgetting that The Riddler was doing Jigsaw-esque stuff long before Jigsaw was a thing. Sure they've taken some of the Saw aesthetic, but the idea of putting people in life-threatening situations in order to test them or Batman is definitely a Riddler thing.
exactly go watch the 90s Batman cartoons, the old tv show and cartoons, the movies, and the comics multiple villains did the jigsaw thing i.e putting people in life threatening situations in order test batman or screw with the people. Hell every super villain does this in any superhero comic pretty much (how many time has louis lane been in a life threatening situations to mess with superman?
Hell I'll even say god damn Bowser did the jigsaw thing before jigsaw in Super Mario by capturing Princess and having mario run a gauntlet to get to her LOL
True but you have to admit the looks of the traps and the tone of the trailer are very reminiscent of Jigsaw. Especially the part where he looks at multiple grimy, flickering monitors.
As someone who's only seen the movies(90s-present) I cant say I have a great idea of who the Riddler is but he definately wasn't portrayed as being this sadistic in Arkam Asylum. He was just kind of a douche..
