Batman: Assault on Arkham
As the Riddler might ask: When is a Batman movie not a Batman movie? Answer: When it stars the Suicide Squad!
The popular team of DC Comics supervillains unleashes its special brand of (in)justice in Batman: Assault on Arkham, the latest DC Universe original movie from Warner Bros Animation, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. Government operative Amanda Waller (voiced by CCH Pounder) assembles a dirty half-dozen — master hit man Deadshot (Neal McDonagh), ice queen Killer Frost (Jennifer Hale), Australian rogue Captain Boomerang (Greg Ellis), bloodthirsty King Shark (John DiMaggio), vigilante assassin Black Spider (Giancarlo Esposito) and criminally insane Harley Quinn (Hynden Walch) — to break into the world's scariest asylum and retrieve a flash drive stolen by the Riddler (Matthew Gray Gubler).

The latest Batman movie, The Dark Knight, doesn't open until July 18, but an animated DVD out 10 days earlier should satisfy any Caped Crusader cravings. Batman Gotham Knight helps set the stage for Christopher Nolan's feature film, with a series of six interlocking animé tales. The voice cast of this visually stunning interpretation of the DC Comics legend includes Kevin Conroy, who played the title character in Batman: The Animated Series and later in Justice League, ER's Parminder Nagra, Ugly Betty's Ana Ortiz and ex-CSI star Gary Dourdan.
