Officially, Batman: Assault on Arkham is an animated sequel to the video game Batman: Arkham Origins, building directly on the events of the game's ending, in which Amanda Waller starts up an Arkham universe version of the Suicide Squad.
Unofficially, it's a Batman: The Animated Series/Justice League reunion between voice director Andrea Romano and actor Kevin Conroy, who has been playing Batman off and on since 1992. The last time they worked together on a Batman project was 2009's Superman/Batman: Public Enemies. The movie also brings back CCH Pounder, who has been playing Amanda Waller since Justice League.
So hey, have you heard about these Arkham games starring Batman? It seems they are pretty popular, friends -- so popular, in fact, that in addition to there being four of them in the video game series, we are now getting a full-length animated movie based on the Arkham Games in which Kevin Conroy reprises his role as Batman. It's called Batman: Assault on Arkham and will see Batman take on the Joker and his plot to detonate a dirty bomb in Gotham City.
Unlike the games, though, Batman won't be a solo act in this mission, as he's joined by Task Force X, better known to comic book fans as the Suicide Squad.

The Internet is telling me that today, May 25, is Geek Pride Day, which Wikipedia describes as "a non-denominational holiday to be celebrated by nerds and geeks who do not feel ashamed of showing their unconventional interests in public." I'm incredulous. Geek Pride Day on the Internet is like Empire Pride Day on the Death St
