The opening scene from Warner Bros. Animation's Batman: Assault on Arkham has just been released. It features the Riddler (Matthew Gray Gubler) trying to annoy the hell out of Amanda Waller (CCH Pounder) by throwing out all kinds of different riddles. This looks like it could be another great animated feature from DC Entertainment. I'm going to try to catch the screening of it at San Diego Comic-Con next week.
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 will have its World Premiere on Friday, July 25th at San Diego Comic-Con. It will be released by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Digital HD on July 29th, and on Blu-ray Combo Park on August 12th. Thanks to Warner Bros. for the video.
