Cool trailer for the new DC animated movie Batman: Assault on Arkham

04.18.2014

Based in the Arkham universe from the popular videogame franchise, BATMAN: ASSAULT ON ARKHAM has debuted its first trailer, which features the familiar animation style of the last few animated DCU films. Directed by THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS PARTS 1 & 2 director Jay Oliva, the new direct-to-video animated pic stars some of the familiar rogues from the game series, including Joker, Harley Quinn, Firefly, Bane, Penguin, Clayface, Killer Croc, and the Suicide Squad. The flick stars the voice talent of frequent Batman Kevin Conroy, Neal McDonough as Floyd Lawton/Deadshot, Tara Strong as Harley Quinn, Tony Todd as Killer Croc, and many more.

Take a look:

There's no synopsis for the film, so I can't say how it will relate to the games in that respect, but based on the trailer it looks like a lot of the familiar tropes of the series. These movies are usually a lot of fun and, on occasion, can be outstanding (THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS comes to mind). One thing you can always count on is some solid, fun animated entertainment that usually serves as a serviceable adaptation of the source material.

The latest DCU movie, SON OF BATMAN, which is based on the comics, is set to hit shelves on May 6, 2014, while there is no set release date for this latest entry in the animated queue, although it's expected sometime in 2014. The next game in the Batman: Arkham series, Arkham Knight, is expected to hit consoles on October 15, 2014.

Takes places after origins, but before Asylum?

So Joker is dead in the present and Deathstroke joining the suicide club at the end of origins means this is a direct sequel to the Origins game? I hope not, cause that game and its story sucked.

I'm a fan of the Arkham games (except Origins, WB really fucked up there) and this looks like a direct sequel to Origins. While I usually like the Batman animated movies (Except Dark Knight Returns part 1 and 2 because of how poorly they translated into a film) this just isn't doing anything for me.

The last two Batman animated movies sucks, so did the last arkham game and they are using that horrible animation style again. This just looks like crap.

I am still excited with the Son of Batman one coming out soon though.

"Tell me where it is...now!"
"Say good night!"
"Do it now!"
And the bomb countdown makes it to 1 or worse.
Who the heck wrote this? Seriously, based only on this preview, this script sounds terrible. And I'm a fan of these movies. Sad to think we may not get anything as good as Dark Knight Returns for some time based on the way these last couple films have looked. I hope I'm wrong. Maybe it will be great. But this preview does not inspire confidence.

I love these movies

Some of them are among the best comic book movies I've ever seen. Each new movie they put out is always a treat for me.

AWESOME

LOVE the animated DC Batman movies, however i HATE...well maybe not hate this animation style. I wish theyd use the animation style from Under the Red Hood.

I know that some would have preferred that this be done in CGI since its set in the Arkhamverse, but I like that the animation style here isn't trying to emulate how the Arkham games look. The Suicide Squad episode of Justice League is one of my favourites; always up for more of those guys. And yay for non-skinny Amanda Waller! Son of Batman has just been released, will check that out as soon as possible.

voice acting

I'd watch more cartoons if actors didn't over-gravel their voices. Take your foot off the gas.

That's interesting. 'Arkham Origins' ended with Deathstroke being recruited to the Suicide Squad. In any case, this looks awesome. Always great to have Kevin Conroy back as Batman.

Sounds great

But I do hope its a lot better than Son of Batman, because that one disappointed me a lot. It was written by Joe R. Lansdale, who is usually great and did a couple of great BATS episodes as well. But Son Of Batman(like most of these DC cartoons the last couple of years) is basically just one long action sequence, with hardly any story. Here's hoping this one will have an actual story!

I agree about SOBM. Also Slades voice really bugged me. It was like bad shrimp, it just didn't sit right...

Looks awesome. I only played to like the second game. Is the suicide squad featured in the games? If so, how?

At the end of Arkham Origins, Amanda Waller went to see Deathstroke to talk to him about joining the Suicide Squad.
