WATCH: First trailer for Batman: Assault on Arkham

April 25th, 2014 by Todd Black Comments

When it comes to animated movies, DC is never afraid to go beyond the scope and incorporate numerous characters and factions from their universe. Now, a fan-beloved group is about to make their debut in the movie universe.

The Suicide Squad is here.

Batman: Assault on Arkham features the Squad, headed up by Amanda Waller, taking the fight to both Joker and Batman when things go wrong. And by wrong, we of course mean epic. A twist in this tale is that this movie is in the same universe as the Arkham games, where in Origins the birth of the Squad was teased.

Another interesting twist is the characters who comprise the Squad. We have tried and trues in Deadshot and Harley Quinn, but we also have Killer Frost, Captain Boomerang, and King Shark in the roster. None of whom had been in the games and aren’t all Batman villains. DC again showing its villain diversity.

Batman: Assault on Arkham is reportedly due for release later this year.

Check out the first trailer below, and let us know what you think!
