Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League trailer has a bunch of callbacks to the Arkham games

The most up-to-date trailer for Rocksteady Studio’s Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, which debuted at DC FanDome, does not incorporate any gameplay footage. It does, however, have some shout-outs to the Batman: Arkham video games, which it truly is weirdly a type of sequel to. (It also has some banging new music, good enhancing, and some of the jokes land.)

For starters, the opening recreates the beginning of Arkham Asylum with the drive previous the “hitchhikers may possibly be escaping clients” sign, and the scene of Amanda Waller recruiting the squad is established in the game’s first beat place. (Waller isn’t performed by the identical voice actor as she was in Arkham Origins, but instead is voiced and mocapped by Debra Wilson, who voiced Waller in Telltale’s Batman: The Enemy Inside. You may possibly also know her from Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Get or Mad Tv.)

Throughout the sequence where by the Suicide Squad gears up with assist from Gizmo, a kind of evil MacGyver from the comics, a pair of merchandise from the Arkham sequence show up. King Shark puts on the bowler hat the Riddler wore in Arkham Town, and Harley Quinn fires Batman’s grapnel gun. Appears like Gizmo has a selection of trophies and gizmos belonging to Arkhamverse characters, including a bat-glider and the super-speed boomerang Captain Boomerang works by using to zip around.

Later on you will find a junker Batmobile with a repurposed Batsignal for a headlight, which has the identical X form across its facial area as the edition on leading of the GCPD building in Arkham Knight, though there’s no trace as to who’s driving it. Two more villains from the sequence also return: Poison Ivy is evidently alive and well if her vines appearing at the 2.10 mark are anything at all to go by, and the Penguin’s regrown some of his hair but still has that beer-bottle monocle embedded in his eye.

Final 12 months, Rocksteady artistic director Sefton Hill explained Suicide Squad: Get rid of the Justice League as a hybrid among the Arkham video games and some “highly effective, wonderful gunplay” in an open up-globe Metropolis. It’ll have drop-in/drop-out co-op for up to four gamers, but can seemingly be performed solo as well, with AI controlling whichever people you do not decide on. It is really due in 2024.
