New ‘Batman: Assault on Arkham’ clip, next DC animated movies announced

Batman: Assault on Arkham is now available to own via Digital HD, and to celebrate Warner Bros. has released an action-packed new clip. Watch as Batman takes down Amanda Waller’s entire tactical unit. Batman: Assault on Arkham will be available on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD on August 12th.


Batman: Assault on Arkham enjoyed a rousing reception at its July 25 premiere at Comic-Con International, delighting a room of 4,250 fans for the screening and panel discussion amongst actors Kevin Conroy (Batman), Matthew Gray Gubler (Riddler), Troy Baker (Joker) and John DiMaggio (King Shark), and producer James Tucker, director Jay Oliva, screenwriter Heath Corson and dialogue director Andrea Romano.

Toward the end of the panel, the next DC animated movies were announced:

  • Coming in early 2015, the Aquaman origin story, Justice League: Throne of Atlantis
  • Arriving sometime in the first half of 2015, Batman vs. Robin, which will feature the first-ever animated appearance of The Court of Owls. It will not be based on the comic, however. Producer James Tucker set the record straight on Twitter:

  • And potentially premiering at Comic-Con 2015 will be Justice League: Gods and Monsters, marking a return to the DCU films by animation legend Bruce Timm for this special film. Timm developed the original story and many of the character designs for Justice League: Gods and Monsters, and is producing the film.
