Hot on the heels of this month’s Batman movie Gotham by Gaslight, another animated DC feature is set to arrive later this year. This one focuses on the classic supervillain team Suicide Squad, and a first trailer for Suicide Squad: Hell To Pay has been released.
The movie features Mr Robot star Christian Slater as Deadshot, with voiceover veteran Tara Strong as Harley Quinn and Vanessa Williams as Amanda Waller. Check the trailer out below:
A synopsis has also been released. It reads: “Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay finds Amanda Waller’s top secret Task Force X–Deadshot, Bronze Tiger, Killer Frost, Captain Boomerang, Harley Quinn and Copperhead–on a mission to retrieve a mystical object so powerful that they’re willing to risk their own lives to steal it. But the Suicide Squad isn’t the only group of villains seeking to possess the object. The race is on for the golden prize.. and, to stay alive, second place isn’t an option.”
Like Gotham by Gaslight and 2016’s animated Batman hit The Killing Joke, Suicide Squad: Hell To Pay will carry an R-rating. The film does not yet have a release date, but it is expected later in the year.
In terms of DC’s live-action movies, Suicide Squad 2 is to start production later this year. The movie will be directed by The Accountant‘s Gavin O’Connor. It has also been rumored that it might feature Ben Affleck’s final appearance as Batman.
