The last trailer I have to show from DC FanDome is the trailer for the new Rocksteady video game: Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. It’s not a gameplay trailer, just a really fun cinematic that shows off the characters and scope of the game. It’s pretty cool.
We knew this game was coming in some form or another. I even did a List of Six on the game prior to FanDome, of things I want to see in the game. How many did I get right? A few…it’s set in the Arkhamverse, it’ll probably have the Arkham fighting style, it’s going to feature multiple playable characters, it’s going to target the Justice League and Harley Quinn is one of the stars. So that’s 5 out of 6 things I get!
No word on whether or not the Joker shows up…
Still, the game looks cool and should be pretty awesome. It comes out in 2022, so we’ve got a long wait ahead of us. But long waits are nothing new in video game announcements, so I can be patient.
Honestly, I am now much more excited about Gotham Knights…
We recently got the first visual confirmation that the video game studio Rocksteady is making a Suicide Squad video game. The geniuses who brought us the Arkhamverse trilogy will be tackling a new DC Comics crew and I am very excited.
The thing is, all we know about the game is this single teaser image. Looks like they’re targeting Superman? Who can say for sure.
The point is, having nothing but a single teaser image is not going to stop me from speculating. Even if I only have to wait until this weekend for DC FanDome to actually reveal and explain the game, I’m gonna waste everybody’s time by speculating on things I want to see in the game right now. I don’t see why not. It’s the middle of August. The heat and humidity are terrible. The pandemic shows no signs of slowing down. Life is hell. Patience does not exist. I think it’s perfectly fine to spend my time day dreaming about a new video game from the studio that brought us the Arkham trilogy.
So join me after the jump for all the things I want to see in the Rocksteady Suicide Game, reduced to six entries. And come back after DC FanDome for a new list that will be based on everything we do learn about the game. Maybe some of the ones on this list will prove correct!Read the rest of this entry
I’m very excited that Bebop and Rocksteady are going to be in the new Ninja Turtles movie – but set photos have revealed that they are going to be intensely accurate characters. Check out these set photos.
That’s Gary Anthony Williams as Bebop and WWE wrestler Sheamus as Rocksteady, both before their mutations into a warthog and a rhino respectively. Just look at them. They look exactly like the classic cartoon versions of the characters, to an insane degree. There are pictures on the web of Williams even wearing the classic vest.
In a movie that finally gave the Ninja Turtles themselves unique and individual looks, why go so weirdly cartoony on Bebop and Rocksteady? Why not re-invent them as well?
I suppose it doesn’t matter in the end. I liked the first movie, and I’m excited to see them in the second! I hope they’re not too campy. The writers should read the current IDW comic book series for an amazing portrayal of Bebop and Rocksteady.
