The next DCA DTV will be set in the Arkham Video Game universe and will feature Batman and the Suicide Squad!

Looks fairly good from the short clips that I've found on Facebook today. Should be out in July(?) to capitilize on the 75th anniversary promotions.

Watched the Preview for this on the Son of Batman Blu Ray..


Much more excited for this one than previous couple of releases..

Its supposed to take place 2 years before the Video Games.. --

Plus the Suicide Squad-- Boomer, Deadshot, Harley, Killer Frost, I think Black Spider and some others.. And its supposed to be a Caper Movie-- (like the great JLU episode)-- and Batman is supposedly just the background story in this one (and doesn't even show up until a ways into it)

Not to mention CCH Pounder's return as Waller and Kevin Conroy as Bats...

Release Date and Bonus Features for Batman: Assault on Arkham Revealed

SuperHeroHype

May 07, 2014

Earlier today, we posted a behind-the-scenes featurette for the upcoming Batman: Assault on Arkham which gave viewers a better idea of what to expect from the film. Now, DC Animation has revealed some new announcements for the film including that it will be arriving on Digital, DVD, and Blu-ray combo pack on August 12. You can read the press release on the title below which includes a brief synopsis of the film as well as the bonus features you'll find.

Gotham is in great danger when the government assembles a group of villains — code named the Suicide Squad — and forces them to break into Arkham Asylum to retrieve top secret information stolen by the Riddler. Things take a turn for the worse when one of the Squad members (Harley Quinn) frees the Joker, who is intent on blowing up Arkham Asylum and Gotham City. Batman must use his super hero wits and strength to thwart the wicked plans of the Joker and the Suicide Squad.

“Batman: Assault on Arkham is a thrill-ride with everything a fan would want — a courageous super hero, depraved villains, and suspenseful plot twists,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, WBHE Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing. “Featuring voice talent from some of today’s hottest television actors, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is proud to release this as the next DC Universe Original Movie.”

“Working on a new Batman story is always exciting,” said Sam Register, President, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Series. “As a fan of the Arkham video games, I know this movie is going to entertain all Batman groups, from comic book and super hero fans to the most dedicated gamer.”

Kevin Conroy (Batman: The Animated Series) voices Batman, and joins forces with several Hollywood greats to bring the legendary characters to life. Adding to the celebrity-laden cast is Neal McDonough (Justified, Desperate Housewives) as Deadshot, Troy Baker (The Last of Us) as Joker, Matthew Gray Gubler (Criminal Minds) as Riddler, CCH Pounder (The Shield, Warehouse 13) as Amanda Waller, Greg Ellis (24) as Captain Boomerang, and Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad, Revolution) as Black Spider.

Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment, Batman: Assault on Arkham is directed by Jay Oliva (Man of Steel, Justice League: War) and Ethan Spaulding (Son of Batman) from a script written by Heath Corson (Justice League: War). Sam Register (Beware the Batman, Teen Titans Go!), Benjamin Melniker (The Dark Knight Rises) and Michael Uslan (The Dark Knight Rises) serve as executive producers. James Tucker (Son of Batman) is Supervising Producer.

Batman: Assault on Arkham has tons of exciting enhanced content. The Blu-ray Combo Pack will include:

Arkham Analyzed: The Secrets Behind the Asylum – This is the documentary that traces the strange, demonic history of the location where horror is mixed with the extremities of the criminally insane. A place where Batman must keep his watchful gaze, to insure that what goes in does not come out …. ever.
The Joker's Queen: Harley Quinn – If The Joker were to have a girlfriend, what would she be like? This featurette covers the story of the deviancy and often provocative side to The Joker’s greatest ally, Harley Quinn.
An advance look into the next DC animated feature film with the creators and cast.
Four episodes from the DC Comics Vault.
