Watch The Opening Scene From BATMAN: ASSAULT ON ARKHAM

"Riddle me this: When is a door not a door?" DC's latest animated feature will be with us very soon, but if you're the impatient type you can see the opening scene featuring Edward Nigma attempt to stump Amanda Waller with a series of riddles after the jump.

“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).

Riddler seems to have gotten lazy with his riddles but the Batman entrance was solid.
Darktower - 7/15/2014, 8:20 AM

Nomis - I agree... that skinny "hot' Amanda Waller SUCKS... this is THE Amanda Waller we all love to hate

Riddle me this: what do two bullets, familial bloodshed, and inescapable vengeance create??
THE MOTHER[frick]ING BATMAN!!!

This Waller is boss. CC H Poinder is Waller. She's been voicing her since justice League animated series. She should play her in live action too
ComicsBornAndBred - 7/15/2014, 8:32 AM
Arrow stop with casting the young bloods as certain DC chatters. Young Waller is ass. Where's the seasoned govt head honcho on Arrow? She's too young to be hardened and shit
Melkaticox - 7/15/2014, 8:43 AM

Nomis - 7/15/2014, 8:46 AM

Terrible voice acting.
NeoBaggins - 7/15/2014, 10:19 AM
Looks like yet another DC animated hit.
SoftBodyPhysics - 7/15/2014, 10:23 AM
"Try to keep up, won't you?"



The Arkham Origins actor is so much better.
Sipprelle - 7/15/2014, 10:27 AM
Why has the animation started seeming so much worse since JL War?
thebearjew - 7/15/2014, 10:45 AM

Can't wait to see what bats does to those soldiers.
NextHero08 - 7/15/2014, 11:58 AM
I can't stand the string of Riddler voices that have come about after Batman:TAS.
Holmes - 7/15/2014, 12:22 PM
god idk if i have higher standards or something, but this looks like trash, the voice acting the story, idk, i hate animated superhero flicks
Steelers4190 - 7/15/2014, 1:12 PM

dezdigi - 7/15/2014, 8:30 PM
DC animated really need a hit.
case - 7/15/2014, 11:35 PM
Fats Waller!!!

Hope this is good. I think their quality has dropped a touch over the years. Or maybe my expectations have gotten higher.
Haff - 7/16/2014, 2:55 AM
Can't wait for this. Son Of Batman was a real disappointment for me, so hopefully this will be back on the form we expect of DC's Animated movies. :)
