Man, D.C./Warner Bros. are really churning these movies out. The latest Batman original animated movie “Son of Batman” isn’t even out yet (it’s due next month), but the publisher and their Hollywood studio biddies are already gearing up the next one, “Batman: Assault on Arkham” for sometime this year.
The latest finds Bats going up against the Suicide Squad, the Joker, and the crazies of Arkham Asylum. Seriously, if I were Batman, I would just firebomb the crap out of that place and be done with it. Do you realize how many innocent people Batman has allowed to died by refusing to kill someone like the Joker? It’s gotta be in the thousands by now, right? Talk about being an enabler!
Anyways, “Batman: Assault on Arkham” pits bats not just against the Joker, but Amanda Waller and her Suicide Squad, including the likes of Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Killer Frost, Black Spider, King Shark and Captain Boomerang. Yeah, not exactly a bunch of formidable villains there. Harley Quinn is just some psychotic teenager in clown make-up, right? And Captain Boomerang, well, doesn’t he just throw boomerangs?
It’s a good thing Batman has all those wonderful toys to deal with this mess.
