Entertainment Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League release date, trailers, gameplay and news
Walking Dead spin-off World Beyond will have "deep connections" to the Rick Grimes movies
World Beyond is more than just a spin-offOutside of Andrew Lincoln’s return as Rick Grimes in the trilogy, not much is known about the AMC movies, though Chief Content Officer of The Walking Dead Universe (yes, that’s a real title) Scott M. Gimple has revealed that World Beyond will have “deep connections” to the movies in an interview with IGN.
It what must be one of the hardest handbrake turns in all of video games, Rocksteady Studios –the developers behind the much beloved and faithful Batman Arkham games– has defied all expectation with the announcement of their brand new game,.
That's right, instead of donning the pointy-eared mask of the caped crusader for another gritty afternoon on Gotham, we'll be pulling on some neon hot pants, preparing our bats and boomerangs, and limbering up our King Shark-sized muscles to fight what appears to be an evil iteration of the Justice League, in this tantalisingly unique game.
The best new TV shows coming your way in 2020 and beyond
From Star Trek to The Boys season 2, don't miss out on the best new TV shows coming soonThere are superhero shows coming to Disney Plus, dramas heading to Hulu, and more than a few Netflix originals that have us very, very excited – we're looking at you, Dark season 3. We've searched high and low to bring you the very best new TV shows that you should watch. And for those with Disney Plus or Netflix, you can see what's new and available right now on the linked lists under here.
The world was ready for a sequel to the smash-hit Arkham Knight game in 2020, but five years later and Rocksteady is taking us in a new direction, and we are kind of digging the journey so far.
We are getting some serious Sunset Overdrive vibes from the brief cinematic trailer we saw during the DC Fandome, and if they can build a game that delivers punchy quips from Harley Quinn and her crew as well as punchy punches to the steely jaw of Superman, we are all for it.
Check out all we know about Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League.
Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League release date
We'll start off with the bad news, as Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League is still a long, long way off from release.
During the announcement trailer, Rocksteady gave us a worryingly vague release window of 2022. Yep, a full two years away from release, and all we have until then is a four-minute cinematic trailer.
New Avatar 2 concept art shows off the underwater "Crabsuit"
"One of the many new RDA vehicles that will be seen in the Avatar sequels"That's a long wait, but to tide us over, producer Jon Landau has been slowly releasing new behind-the-scenes photos of James Cameron's underwater epic. The latest update offers a look at the Crabsuit, "a human-driven multifunction submersible [and] one of the many new RDA vehicles that will be seen in the Avatar sequels.
We assume that Suicide Squad is so early in production that there was literally nothing else to show during the DC Fandome event, and that Rocksteady are spending their time building a wonderful game, but it's a tough blow for gamers who will have waited seven years between Arkham Knight and this new vision.
The good news in all this is that it's firmly in the next-gen cycle, so the game will release onand .
This is good news because 2022 will be far enough into the lifespan of these new consoles that the games will likely be polished and looking as crisp as ever, as developers slowly learn the workings of these powerful gaming machines.
Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League trailer
You'll be able to watch the full trailer at the top of this article, and frankly, its a joyous ride throughout.
The Batman 2021 release date, cast, spin-off, and more
Get ready for The Batman with our recap of the latest newsNot only is it potentially the most packed Bat-movie ever in terms of its rogues' gallery, but it's also offering up utterly unique takes on everything from the Batmobile to the Batsuit, and even how it expands on its universe.
We catch Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and KingShark (all staple members of the Suicide Squad) taking a not-so-well-earned rest as a city burns underneath the menacing glare of a purple-eyed skull – likely some sort of Brainiac invasion, but we are yet to see the big-headed freak just yet.
We presume it's Amanda Waller – leader, antagonist, and sometimes ally of the Squad – who Harley is duping over the radio, though we have no confirmation on that. But we do see a little bit of combat, as the squad hop around the rooftops taking out some enemies in their signature ways, giving a glimpse of how the game's mechanics might work upon release.
It might turn out that Suicide Squad breaks down into typical archetypes, and we will be playing as different heroes (read: villains) depending on our preferred play-style.
For example, Harley is the heavy, close-range combatant, Boomerang is a zipping assailant who uses speed and bombs to take out enemies, King Shark is the static, heavy-machine-gunner with suppressive fire, while DeadShot looks like a long-range sniper/support.
The Batman 2021 release date, cast, new logo, and more
Get ready for The Batman with our recap of the latest newsBut, before that Bat-bonanza, it's time to get everyone on an even playing field. Whether you can recite The Batman's villains in the 2021 release off by heart or haven't even spied the new Batmobile yet, we've pieced together all the major news so you're all prepared for the FanDome panel.
Later on in the trailer, as Harley quips about Waller's supposed "Alpha Target" the red and blue blur takes out some choppers in the background, and the Man of Steel himself is shown with that same terrifying purple gaze that we saw in the teaser image released earlier in July.
As we had suspected previously, it looks like your task as the Suicide Squad is to systematically take out the super-powered Justice League with a team of your buddies, and we are all for it.
Given that thewas also teased at DC Fandome, we would imagine there would be a bunch of other members showing up as playable characters too, like PolkaDot Man, and Rick Flagg.
Suicide Squad Kill The Justice League story
Interestingly, of the two games announced by Warner Bros. at the DC Fandome (the other one being Gotham Knights), this is the game that is a direct continuation of the Arkham series of games, and is set within the same universe.
However, (spoiler alert if you haven't finished Arkham Knight) if you've played those games before then you'll probably know that Batman is likely dead, following the events of the last games' ending, so we are confused as to how the Justice League is set up in the years between this game and Arkham Knight.
From theand a target on his head, many fans speculated that this was, in fact, Bizarro, the evil zombie-like version of Superman from the comics. But now we figure Brainiac has come to Earth to turn the Justice League on the population through mind-control, which makes a lot more sense than yoinking a random villain from the comics and putting him front and centre in a brand new, mass-produced game.
The Suicide Squad first look arrives in epic behind-the-scenes video
"A douchey Captain America."The Suicide Squad teaser has arrived during the movie's DC FanDome panel, giving us an epic first look at James Gunn's DC movie.
We would imagine this will be a 1-4 player co-op game, not too dissimilar from the upcoming, where you pick a hero, jump out into the world to complete missions, return to base to upgrade, customise and partner up with friends online for more destruction - sounds awesome.
If we had to hazard a guess as to who we will be taking down from the Justice League (other than Supes himself) it would have to be these towering, super-powered gods among men, who would otherwise be too difficult to put into the game as playable characters.
Think: Green Lantern, Flash, Martian Manhunter, Cyborg, Wonder Woman. Maybe even Aquaman to set up some sort of friction with King Shark? Interesting to speculate on.
