Though the trailer reveals little about the story of “Suicide Squad Isekai,” it does reveal which members of the titular team will get trapped in another world — namely, Harley Quinn, Joker, Deadshot, Peacemaker, Clayface, and King Shark. If you ever wanted to see John Cena’s Peacemaker in anime form, this is the show for you
At Anime Expo earlier this year, director Osada made it a point to highlight that the show’s version of Joker will be different. “Everybody has their favorite version of Joker,” said Osada (via IGN). “We ultimately decided to not copy any particular iteration and have something completely unique.” Osada also talked about making The Joker hot … and judging from the trailer, he is.
Whether we’ll see Harley and the other villains get magical powers or whether any of DC’s biggest superheroes will make an appearance, remains to be seen. “Suicide Squad Isekai” will be released sometime next year. Here’s the synopsis:
In the crime-ridden city of Gotham, Amanda Waller, the head of A.R.G.U.S., has assembled a group of notorious criminals for a mission: Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Peacemaker, Clayface, and King Shark. These Super-Villains are sent into an otherworldly realm that’s connected to this world through a gate. It’s a world of swords and magic where orcs rampage and dragons rule the skies — an “ISEKAI”!
With lethal explosives planted in their necks, there’s no running or hiding, and failing the mission means a one-way ticket to the afterlife! Can Harley Quinn and her crew conquer this perilous ISEKAI realm?! Brace yourselves for the pulse-pounding saga of the elite task force known as the “Suicide Squad” as they embark on a jaw-dropping adventure!
