Warner Bros. and DC Animation have debuted the opening scene for their upcoming animated film Batman: Assault on Arkham. Check it out in the player below! Additionally, they’ve revealed that the film will have its World Premiere on Friday, July 25 at Comic-Con International.
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.
