New BATMAN: ASSAULT ON ARKHAM Stills

DC's latest animated feature, Batman: Assault On Arkham, will be with us next month, and ahead of that we have a couple of new images from the movie. After the jump you can see a closeup of Black Spider, and a pic of Harley Quinn having a word in the Joker's shell-like..

“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 set for release on August 12th and sees Kevin Conroy (Batman: The Animated Series) leading a voice cast that also includes Neal McDonough (Captain America: The First Avenger) as Deadshot, Troy Baker (The Last of Us) as Joker, Matthew Gray Gubler (Criminal Minds) as Riddler, CCH Pounder (The Shield) as Amanda Waller, Hynden Walch (The Batman) as Harley Quinn, Greg Ellis (24) as Captain Boomerang, and Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad) as Black Spider. Jay Oliva (Justice League: War) and Ethan Spaulding (Son of Batman) direct from a script by Heath Corson (Justice League: War).

I've seen better things in my toilet than this
staypuffed - 7/12/2014, 3:15 AM
Man, I was so excited to see this when it was announced... and now I just don't care.

@Mrfreeze

You must spend a lot of time in the toilet
Mrfreeze - 7/12/2014, 3:18 AM
It's my passion @nubase

DC Animated movie? Of course I'm in. First day purchase. But until then....

Jollem - 7/12/2014, 3:59 AM
did anyone ever read the actual flashpoint comics besides the cartoon? good stuff. i saw jl: war for the first time a couple weeks ago. it was good. it's what the title promised, and the banter between everyone was gold

this looks pretty sweet as well

I'd love to get my hands on those flashpoint books. Looking at a few panels I see the movie stuck close to the source material.
Jollem - 7/12/2014, 4:57 AM
yeah, pretty much the same. just a little more involved
Bl00dwerK - 7/12/2014, 5:33 AM
Kevin Conroy!
Bread - 7/12/2014, 7:15 AM
@Jollem I read the "The World of Flashpoint featuring Batman" which was just a solo Flashpoint Batman story. It was interesting to see how Thomas Wayne handled things as Bats and who the Joker turned out to be and why.
Blanka1212 - 7/12/2014, 7:20 AM
Shell-like? What?
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 7/12/2014, 7:51 AM
Flashpoint was their last good movie so I am skeptical.
dmm5 - 7/12/2014, 7:56 AM
Star Lord?
GiantNerd - 7/12/2014, 7:57 AM
@NeoBaggins

What movie is that? I try to watch all the DC animated stuff.
GreenLantern519 - 7/12/2014, 8:36 AM
@GiantNerd0720

That would be "The Flashpoint Paradox", it follows the Flashpoint storyline in the comics where Barry goes to an alternate timeline and a lot of things are different. Definitely a good watch, much better than JL:War.
GreenLantern519 - 7/12/2014, 8:38 AM
@DIAMONDZ

I don't think they've announced yet or even given a prospective time (like Spring 2015 or something). Will probably be announced at Comic-Con during their DC Animated panels/Screenings.
GreenLantern519 - 7/12/2014, 8:40 AM
I'm not excited about this at all. JL:War sucked, Son of Batman sucked, safe to say this will suck too. I'm not even saying that as a DCAU purist or anything, these past two movies have just been so shitty comparatively. At least we know the voice acting will be good with Kevin Conroy back. That new guy they had in War and SOB was horrible, they should've just gotten Roger Craig Smith to do it, especially since they brought on Tory Baker to do the Joker again.
wavehunter - 7/12/2014, 8:55 AM
Why isn't Arleen Sorkin voicing Harley anymore? She's the best!
GiantNerd - 7/12/2014, 8:59 AM
@Spidey5194

Sweet thanks. I'll definitely check it out.
Blanka1212 - 7/12/2014, 8:59 AM
I'm still to busy trying to figure out what the [frick] he's talking about "talking in Joker's shell-like"...
GiantNerd - 7/12/2014, 9:01 AM
@Spidey5194

..So I should skip Son of Batman and JL: War?
Kjo0212 - 7/12/2014, 9:20 AM
@nerd jl:war is worth a look son of batman was weak and that's coming from a very big batman fan
blackandyellow - 7/12/2014, 9:23 AM
They should do Court of Owls.
jimdotbeep - 7/12/2014, 9:40 AM
This is Just a cash Grab
GiantNerd - 7/12/2014, 9:47 AM
@Kjo0212

Alright I'll give War a shot too. Thanks
GreenArrow1941 - 7/12/2014, 10:01 AM
@Jollem

Y I read it and some of the other titles along with the main flashpoint book, they changed a lot of things involving Superman and for some unknown reason felt like making Wonder Woman kill the child Bily Batson in the animated movie which of course she doesn't do because she's not a hertless bitch, but then again Superman killed here as well and it was also unneccesary.
GreenArrow1941 - 7/12/2014, 10:04 AM
"Alright I'll give War a shot too. Thanks."

JL:War was the animation of Geoff John's best at attempt at the Avengers of course am not a fan of his JL. JUst forget this New 52 crap and just animate Morrison's JL.

New Batman: Assault on Asshole stills
RexDartEskimoSpy - 7/12/2014, 10:35 AM
@GA1941:

Damn right. Morrison's Justice League was sooo much better than the recent crap. And I usually hate Morrison's DC stuff. Just replace Kyle and Wally with Hal and Barry and drop Plastic Man - I love him but there's no room - and you've got a perfect JLA movie.

Geoff Johns' Green Lantern was an all-time classic, but he doesn't have any clue how to handle Superman and Wonder Woman. These DC animated movies need really strong material to work off of and since the new Justice League is the Budweiser of comics, JL:War ended up Busch Lite.
DCGuy - 7/12/2014, 12:17 PM
I have every single DC movie ever. I will buy this one I like it!
GreenLantern519 - 7/12/2014, 12:35 PM
@giantNerd0720

They're really subpar when compared to other DC movies, but I'm sure you could find them online somewhere if you'd rather not waste the money and potentially hate it.
mctrinket - 7/12/2014, 12:37 PM
RichardGrayson - 7/12/2014, 12:40 PM
I'm not freaking out about this movie. I feel like there were better stories they could do first in the Arkham universe...
TheDudeRusty - 7/12/2014, 12:58 PM
They should do The Rot, Snyder's Batman, Azzarello's WW and Earth-2 if they're using N52.
Klone - 7/12/2014, 3:05 PM
The hypocrisy with JLW defenders is staggering.
Klone - 7/12/2014, 3:07 PM
Also, JLW was an sinful abomination. One of the worst CBMs I have ever seen. Worse than Mos, worse than IM2. It's even worse than Catwoman! At least with that film I can LAUGH at how terrible it is. With JLW I am simply disgusted.
Super12 - 7/12/2014, 8:19 PM
@mctrinket - that is literally the worst thing I have ever seen.
Dandy - 7/12/2014, 11:43 PM
How long until someone slaps Hail Hydra over that second picture?
