Fans of the DC Universe Animated Original Movies will be excited to know that the latest feature in this line of films has just been released and is entitled “Batman: Assault On Arkham”. It’s been available on digital servicing for a few weeks already but was just released to Blu-ray and standard format DVD yesterday. Check out the cool cover.
Premise: The film is set in the universe of the Batman: Arkham video game franchise, and occurs after the events of Batman: Arkham Origins. The story focuses primarily on the Suicide Squad, particularly Batman villains Deadshot and Harley Quinn, with Batman in a supporting role. In the film, a Suicide Squad of six criminals is dispatched by a secret government agency to break into Arkham Asylum, where they must contend with the asylum’s inmates and Batman as they attempt to complete their mission.

Now I’ll admit that I am a little bit behind on this overall premise because I have not played a single minute of the game because I am not much of a gamer. That said I will add that it does look interesting so I will hope that the film makes the Netflix queue sometime soon since I still want to see it. These films have all been very entertaining that is for sure and I’ve yet to see one that I did not enjoy. This film is especially interesting to me since it features the Suicide Squad and that is a team I have enjoyed for years. The cast is massive as far as other characters so what do you think about it? Will you be picking up a copy of this release?
