The Joker Strikes in New Batman Under the Red Hood Clip

Looks like things are getting mighty serious in “Batman: Under the Red Hood”, if this second clip from the upcoming WB direct-to-DVD movie is any indication. Then again, when you’ve got the Joker around, things always get a little hairy. Via YouTube.

Batman faces his ultimate challenge as the mysterious Red Hood takes Gotham City by firestorm. One part vigilante, one part criminal kingpin, Red Hood begins cleaning up Gotham with the efficiency of Batman, but without following the same ethical code. Killing is an option. And when the Joker falls in the balance between the two, hard truths are revealed and old wounds are reopened.

Featuring the voices of Jensen Ackles, Neil Patrick Harris, Jason Isaacs, Bruce Greenwood, John Di Maggio, Wade Williams, and Jim Piddock. Brandon Vietti directs.

Batman and company lands on DVD July 27, 2010.

And here’s the first clip in case you missed it the first time around:
