Looking forward to Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League? Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming DC title including its release date, playable characters & cast.

While the upcoming Gotham Knights will tell the story of the Batfamily after Batman’s demise, original Batman: Arkham Asylum developer Rocksteady Games will be turning its attention to some of the Caped Crusader’s rogues gallery.

Looking to prove it’s good to be bad, Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League will focus on four of the most famous members of the titular team as they attempt to take out the Justice League.

Rocksteady have also shared an expanded look at their Arkham series continuation at DC Fandome 2021. Featuring the likes of The Flash, Green Lantern, Robin, and Superman in the flesh, the trailer also hinted at showdowns with Batman and Wonder Woman. While no gameplay was shown, fans can expect to encounter Lex Luthor and other villainous DC alumni across their journey to take down the Justice League.

What is Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League?

The game is described as an open-world action-adventure shooter that can be played by up to four players (solo players can switch between characters at will). Amanda Waller has sent the team to investigate the appearance of longtime comic-book villain Brainiac, only to come up against Superman – who has been brainwashed.

Playable characters

The game’s mean team in all their glory

There are four playable characters, and they’ll all be familiar to longtime comic fans – or anyone that’s enjoyed the Suicide Squad movies.

Harley Quinn, Deadshot, King Shark, and Captain Boomerang are included, presumably each with their own gameplay abilities.

Sadly, though, it appears the roster won’t be growing anytime soon. As reported by PCGamesN, Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League will eschew the live-service aspirations of something like Marvel’s Avengers.

So while we’d have loved an appearance by Killer Croc, you won’t get one in this outing.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League cast

Of course, it wouldn’t be Suicide Squad if there wasn’t a mischievous band of misfits voicing DC’s iconic heroes. Below are all of the cast members that have been announced so far:

Is it connected to Gotham Knights?

Despite launching at a similar time to WB Montreal’s upcoming Batfamily title, Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League isn’t linked to the other title at all. In fact, it’s actually set in a different universe entirely.

It is, however, a continuation of the Batman Arkham universe, so there’s the potential for all sorts of villains and cameos from Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, Arkham Origins, and Arkham Knight.
