Arkham Rising is a fan film set during the events of 2012's most anticipated film 'The Dark Knight Rises' Following Batman's defeat at the hands of the mercenary known as Bane, Gotham City has fallen into chaos. Criminals have been freed to roam the streets. Gotham City has been held hostage as not even the national guard can find a way to free the city from its captors. Law enforcement has broken down. The guards at Arkham Asylum, hearing of the fate of their counterparts at Black Gate prison, have abandoned their posts. Only the mentally unstable and those foolish enough to engage them remain in Arkham now.
