The Arkhamverse is expanding into animation. Batman: Assault on Arkham has Batman once again going against the Joker. However, for the first time in the Arkhamverse, he's facing off against the Suicide Squad, a team of villains who undertake black ops missions for the US government in exchange for shortened prison sentences. In the Arkhamverse, Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Killer Frost, Black Spider, King Shark, and Captain Boomerang are all members.

The upcoming film will detail Batman's encounter with the Suicide Squad, a group that was teased at the very end of Batman: Arkham Origins. Given the involvement of the Joker, it's clear that this game takes place closer to the Origins timeline than the upcoming Arkham Knight.

Kevin Conroy will reprise his role as Batman, while Troy Baker will play Joker. Here's the first trailer for the film, which is currently undated:

      Wishing Hamill hadn't totally hung up his Joke hat, especially when Conroy is involved. He just brought so much to the role; as does Conroy.

            Agreed. I loved John DiMaggio's Joker and wish it was more than a one-time deal.

            (Although I do normally love Troy Baker.)

        In my eyes Troy Baker is a worthy successor to being the new Joker. He sounds enough like Hamil's rendition to remain familiar, yet also brings in enough uniquness to make it his own.

          The hard part isn't the the voice for the Joker but the laugh. No one will ever have Hamil's laugh.
