While we may have to wait until 2016 to see Batman and Superman face off on the big screen, we luckily don’t have to wait quite as long to see the Caped Crusader in a movie again. In fact, he’ll be making two appearances this year in upcoming direct-to-video animated releases from the awkwardly titled DC Universe Animated Movies line.

The first film, Son of Batman, arrives on May 6th, and the second, Batman: Assault on Arkham, sometime this fall. The latter feature will exist independently from the other Dcau films, instead occupying the same space as the popular and successful Arkham video games. The first trailer for the film was released yesterday, and you can check it out below.

Directed by Jay Oliva (The Dark Knight Returns, Justice League: War), Assault on Arkham pits the Dark Knight against the Joker, who has stolen a dirty bomb and rigged it somewhere in Gotham City. »
