DC's next animated feature, Batman: Assault on Arkham, had its world premiere at this year's San Diego Comic-Con (click here to read our review) and the Blu-ray/DVD will soon be available for purchase. To help promote the upcoming movie, a new clip has been released and it's full of glorious Batman action. Who wins when the Dark Knight takes on one of Amanda Waller's tactical units? Well, the answer should be obvious, but it's still a ton of fun to watch! Check it out below.

It was previously revealed that Justice League: Throne of Atlantis will come out next, but they've also revealed two more upcoming movies: Batman vs. Robin and Justice League: Gods and Monsters. Aquaman's movie will drop early 2015, Batman vs. Robin will introduce the Court of Owls and is scheduled to release in the first half of 2015, and Gods and Monsters -- which is being developed and produced by Bruce Timm -- will possibly premiere at 2015's Comic-Con.

Batman: Assault on Arkham will become available on Blu-ray and DVD August 12. So, who's buying the movie and who's stoked for the upcoming movies?! Don't be shy, share your thoughts with the world below!

So are they mixing the Scott Snyder's Court of Owls story with Grant Morrison's Batman vs Robin that took place when Dick was Batman?

James Tucker said that Batman vs Robin is not an adaptation of Court of Owls. And takes place after Son of Batman.

Oh and in other misreported news, Batman vs Robin is NOT an adaptation of The Court of Owls storyline. Sheesh

WOW lol thanks, I guess I won't be watching that with my little brother. Is it worth the watch? I wasn't a fan of son of the batman or whatever it is called

Looks rad.

I would love to be able to do all that in Arkham city.

Is there any chance that DC will have a decent animation style this time, or will they continue using the awful garbage they have been using?

I can honestly say I felt it's one of DC's best animated movies.

Just saw the movie, and it was pretty darn good.

Posted by Dernman

Seeing the article I want to watch it again.

Edited by i_dont_like_comics

and the crapfest that has become the dc animated universe continues. seriously what are you doing dc?!! that was the only thing you had on marvel!! like 4 guys in this movie are trying their hardest to be ultimate hawkeye/bullseye. and 3 of them aren't supposed to have those skills. pathetic display. just like batman arkham origins. the arkham name is being sullied left and right these days.

Still, didn't this kind of stuff used to be for kids, with just vague adult references?

Posted by Wilbertus

Very stoked to watch this. Even though Son of Batman had its flaws I generally enjoy these DC animated movies and I like what I've seen so far from this one!

Edited by iaconpoint

Yeah, that's the stuff. Much better than the Nolan "realness" crap. I'll take my Harley as naked as possible with Tara Strong's voice and Conroy-Bat whipping that ass.

I´ve already seen the movie, and IT´S AWESOME!

@w0nd: I watched it a couple days ago.

If you like the more "mature" direction DC veers towards in it's animated output, this is a great addition.

I thoroughly enjoyed it.

(The implementation of the soundtrack also comes across as significantly more cinematic than most other animated comic movies I've seen).

Looking forward to Gods and Monsters. Alan Burnett is a great writer, so it should deliver. Plus Bruce Timm is doing the designs!

Also, Gregg, a bit unrelated, but do you plan on reviewing the new episodes of Beware the Batman? Premieres started last week, and tomorrow's episode is a big game-changer in the show.

Looks great

who are you talking about mainly. Deadshot , boomer, and black spider? what skills? boomer didn't really display any fancy hand to hand and only used his boomerangs, deadshot was all about weapons , and spider did what he always has done, so I am probably missing something

Posted by Fallingcliffs

The animation is good in most DC movies, what are you talking about the guy who said such? lol...

Gotta love how the sex scene made it in there, I'm going to get this now looks sick. These DC movies are definitely not for kids lol.

Looks nice. That Batman scene, geez...they make him ridiculously crazy good.

The violence is something to keep a little bro from watching if he isn't old enough to handle it. It can get gruesome
