While there has been rumor of a new Superman video game, it’s now confirmed a Suicide Squad video game is in development.
Word comes from DC Comics co-publisher and movie producer Geoff Johns.
“We’re working on Suicide Squad; it’s in development right now,” Johns told Kotaku.
WB also has the Suicide Squad movie slated for next year.
“I’m really super excited about it,” Johns offered about the Suicide Squad video game. “Because of the concept, you have a game where any of the lead characters can conceivably die and it’s not a stunt. Some really cool story could come out of that.”
Regarding a potential Superman video game, Johns offers that at least it’s been talked about.
“We talk about it a lot, about how flipping up robots for four hours would get old,” Johns said. “I think all games come down to gameplay and the right studio. I’m sure the right studio could crack it. Rocksteady has a real passion for Batman, and I think that’s why they make a great game.”
“Suicide Squad” has an August 5, 2016 release date directed by David Ayer starring Will Smith as Deadshot, Jared Leto as the Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Adam Beach as Slipknot, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, and Scott Eastwood in an unknown role.
