Will Arnett will host 20-minute Suicide Squad DC FanDome panel
Suicide Squad panel set for 5:40am IST on Sunday, August 23
The Suicide Squad game is known as “Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League”. Warner Bros. revealed the title of the in-the-works Suicide Squad video game as part of the schedule for DC FanDome, the upcoming mega virtual convention for all things DC on August 22. Will Arnett — best known for Arrested Development and BoJack Horseman, he has voiced Batman in the Lego movie franchise — will host a 20-minute panel for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League that will give us our first look at the game.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League comes three years after the DC Comics six-issue limited series Justice League vs. Suicide Squad that tasked Batman and the latter supervillain team to take down the remaining members of the Justice League whose minds had been controlled by the villain Eclipso, working through the scheming Maxwell Lord. Max is part of the upcoming live-action Wonder Woman 1984, where he's played by Pedro Pascal. It's possible the Suicide Squad game might be inspired by the comics.
WB Games Montréal is set to unveil its next DC game — which will seemingly involve Batman, given the social media teases — at DC FanDome too. Its panel announcement doesn't confirm that and simply says that it will offer a “first look at an exciting new game.” You can catch that on Saturday, August 22 at 11pm IST.
