The premiere trailer for DC Animated’s upcoming project hit the internet yesterday, giving a first look at Batman and the Suicide Squad. Returning to voice the Dark Knight is fan-favorite Kevin Conroy in the movie, which is based in the Arkham Universe from the popular video game series by Rock Steady.
The plot features Blackgate warden Amanda Waller and her Suicide Squad, in this iteration made up of Deadshot (Neal McDonough), King Shark (Kevin Grevioux), Harley Quinn (Hynden Walch), Captain Boomerang (James Patrick Stuart), The Riddler (Matthew Gray Gubler) and Killer Frost (Eliza Dukshu). CCH Pounder will voice Waller, with Troy Baker as Joker, who will no doubt play a monkey-wrench in both the Bat’s and the Wall’s plans.
The film is directed by Jay Oliva of The Dark Knight Returns, Justice League War and Flashpoint.
Batman: Assault on Arkham is not yet rated, and is to be released mid-2014. Check out the trailer, here.
