After what appears to be a long wait, DC fans were treated to new trailers for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League and Knights of Gotham. Each is action packed and filled to the brim with things to unbox, like how Suicide Squad players will beat the various members of the Justice League featured: Superman, Green Lantern, The Flash and Wonder Woman.
The games are also clearly different in terms of tones: Knights of Gotham seems to be, with good reason, more sullen and serious, while there are clearly the humorous aspects of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. Despite this, there is one important theme that is very evident in both trailers.
Gotham Knights, Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice DC FanDome Trailers
While it’s pretty obvious in the team title, Task Force X is clearly on a suicide mission. They even refer to the fact that fighting the Justice League is one of the worst ideas they’ve ever heard, and while Brainiac’s influence on the Justice League remains to be seen, Superman alone poses a ridiculous threat to him. the team. Even if they win, they still have the explosive devices in their heads, and it looks like they are having, as Deadshot points out, a “one-way ticket.”
True to Suicide Squad form, of course, but the Knights of Gotham The trailer highlights how dangerous their mission is too. Nightwing calls the Court of Owls a myth before being told that, in descending that rabbit hole, there is no turning back. Indeed, the Court unleashed a ton of Greenhouses on the Knights of Gotham characters, and it seems like a desperate fight. Without Batman, the Bat Family is all that’s left to defend Gotham, and just as the Suicide Squad faces impossible odds in Metropolis, so do they in Gotham.
Gotham Knights vs. Court of Owls, Suicide Squad vs. Justice League
Obviously, the Court of Owls and the Justice League aren’t that similar. One is a pseudo-Illuminati organization that runs the city, manipulating its politicians, criminals, and more. As the trailer describes it, Batman and Jim Gordon were basically allowed to exist, but they didn’t have the role in the city they thought they had. Meanwhile, the Justice League is incredibly powerful, and every member is manipulated by Brainiac in his grand scheme, but both present impossible odds for the heroes.
It might be a pretty straightforward storytelling device, but that means that instead of playing heroes like Batman in the Arkham Or face off against Brainiac in a Rocksteady Superman game, players take on the role of former minions and criminals. No, there’s no disrespecting Robin, Nightwing, Batgirl, Red Hood, King Shark, Harley Quinn, Captain Boomerang, or Deadshot, but they all go into a fight they seemingly can’t win. And that will likely make every game’s superhero fantasy even better.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League and Knights of Gotham both are released in 2022.
