We finally got a look at Rocksteady Studios’ Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League via cinematic trailer that is. It features Metropolis under siege by what seems to be Brainiac as the Suicide Squad – comprised of King Shark, Harley Quinn, Deadshot and Captain Boomerang – fight off its forces. Check it out below.
Things quickly heat up when Superman shows up and, after seemingly rescuing someone, proceeds to fry them with heat vision. Why is Superman evil? Does Brainiac have something to do with it? Regardless, that’s where the Justice League-killing part comes in, we imagine.
Despite the lack of gameplay, the trailer does offer a look at some of the squad’s abilities. Deadshot has a jetpack and dual arm cannons for blasting foes; Harley Quinn has a grappling hook gun and baseball bat; Captain Boomerang can toss his boomerang and warp to the location; and King Shark rips foes apart with raw strength and teeth. Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is slated for Xbox Series X, PS5 and PC in 2022. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
