Batman and the Suicide Squad try to stop Joker from detonating a dirty bomb in a new animated feature.


A trailer for Batman: Assault on Arkham, an animated feature based on the Batman Arkham games, has been posted to YouTube.

First announced at San Diego Comic-Con 2013, Batman: Assault on Arkham, is one of DC Universe Animated Original Movies’ (generally well-liked) direct-to-video productions. According to the trailer, the movie follows Batman as well as Task Force X, a group of Batman villains also known as Suicide Squad hired by the government to take on dangerous missions. The two are trying to stop Joker, who’s still imprisoned at Arkham, from detonating a dirty bomb hidden somewhere in Gotham City.

The movie also features voice actors from the games like Troy Baker as The Joker (who stepped in for Mark Hamill in Batman: Arkham Origins), and Martin Jarvis as Alfred Pennyworth. Kevin Conroy will reprise his role as Batman.

Batman: Assault on Arkham will release digitally and on blu-ray.
