Let’s Take a Great Look at Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League!
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is coming. The big time follow-up to the Arkham series by Rocksteady, this game is looking big and badass and full of everything. And this new trailer gives us our best, fullest look yet at just what that everything will entail. It’s a lot more than I was expecting!
I love a good gear and cosmetic system! I really look forward to figuring out how co-op will work. I like the sound of more playable characters down the line. I think it’s interesting that they’ve tied combat to superheroic traversal. And it all looks great. This is gonna be one heck of a video game! So glad I splurged on that Playstation 5. It’s serving me well so far.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League comes out on May 26.
I Think Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is More Animated Cut Scene Than Game
Apparently, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is still coming out. It’s been a few years since the game was announced, and I’m pretty sure we’ve mostly scene animated cut scene trailers than actual gameplay trailers. It’s being made by Rocksteady, so it’s probably going to be good…but honestly, I forgot this game exists. Fortunately, there was a big video game event last night, and we got a new trailer!
Of an animated cut scene.
At least the animation looks good! And the writing seems fun. But I’d really love to know what this game is actually going to be. And I need to hurry up and buy that Playstation 5…
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is scheduled to come out on May 26!
DC Fandome Delivered the Good Trailers!
DC Fandome was yesterday and I waited until today to share the trailers because reasons. I was simply in no rush to get them posted, since every other comic book geek website did a lot with them, so it’s not like I’m some unique resource. But I still like sharing trailers and my thoughts on those trailers, so here’s a bunch of the good ones I’m excited about from DC Fandome!
Let’s kick things off with the granddaddy of all anticipated trailers: The Batman.
This is the movie everybody is excited about, and this trailer delivered! It’s everything we could want (sans Robin), and the movie looks great! This trailer is a little more scattershot than last year’s teaser trailer, but it’s still fun. I love how the movie looks, I love the tone. The fighting looks great, the Batmobile looks great, the Batsuit looks great. Everything looks great!
Though part of me felt a little weird watching this trailer. Like…we are all so excited for this new Batman reboot…and yet it’s the fourth modern cinematic Batman. The Christopher Nolan movies were great. People like Batfleck. But, y’know…I guess we’ll just do it all again!
Hopefully this time we get a proper Robin.
Next up is the Peacemaker TV show on HBO Max.
I like the look of this one too! Suicide Squad is definitely going to go down as one of my favorite movies of the year, so this show should be a hoot! I am all in favor of John Cena becoming as big a movie presence as Dwayne Johnson, and this show will hopefully be a much bigger hit than Suicide Squad.
We got our first look at Black Adam.
Looks OK to me, though I’m still not sure how this movie is going to work. What is the plot going to be? Black Adam fights the Justice Society? I also can’t help but laugh at the Rock saying, “the hierarchy of power in the DC Universe is about to change”. That’s such a weird phrase. There is no real DC Universe in the movies anymore, so is there really a hierarchy of power?
I still don’t think we’re ever going to get Shazam vs. Black Adam on the big screen…
There was also a teaser for The Flash.
First of all, that little bit of chest hair and the choker on Ezra Miller is kinda gross. But maybe that’s just me. I’m not particularly excited about The Flash. I think it’s going to be a really weird film. And having Michael Keaton return as Batman doesn’t really mean anything to me, to be honest. But hey, kudos to them all for actually getting this movie made.
Let’s switch to some video games before we wrap up.
I’m very excited for Gotham Knights.
As you all know, I’m a huge Robin fan. So a game where you play the various Robins — including Tim Drake as actual Robin — is a dream come true! Arkham-style gameplay, combined with co-op campaign, combined with Robin as a playable character, combined with costume building? Can. Not. Wait!
Likewise, I’m super excited about Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League.
I have no idea what this game is going to be like. Also co-op? Also Arkham-style gameplay? I have no idea! But it looks very flashy in this cinematic trailer. So that’s good enough.
I think all of these things are going to arrive to our lives in 2022. It’ll be a long wait, but it’ll also be here soon enough. It’s all very exciting!
Here’s That Suicide Squad Video Game Trailer
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…
