The trailer for Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay was finally released on Thursday. DC and other super hero fans got to see Suicide Squad in 2016. Despite the heavy anticipation, the movie came under fire from the critics and failed to live up to expectations. Now, Warner Bros and DC comics have decided to tweak their strategy a little, by releasing a live animated film.
From the looks of the trailer it seems to follow the events from the Batman Assault on Arkham storyline , which first introduced the Suicide Squad in the DCEU. Instead of following after the first live action film in 2016, Warner Bros has decided to start the process all over again. The task force X (Name for the super villain team) will consist of Deadshot (Leader), Harley Quin, Copperhead, Killer Frost, Bronze Tiger & Captain Boomerang.
Normally, Super Villains are often seen calm and composed no matter what the situation is. Its always the super hero who’s panicking and under pressure. But assign these villains super hero or world saving responsibilities and you see them panicking all of a sudden. Their foe in the movie will be the immortal Vandal Savage.
Amanda Waller played by Vanessa Williams will be aligning all the super villains into the Task force X. Their job will be hunt down Vandal Savage who is referred as history’s bloodiest tyrant. The threat from the villain will be so huge that we may even see Deadshot backing off. At one point in the trailer we see Deadshot exclaiming that “I didn’t sign up to deal with an immortal Butcher.” It would be interesting to see how the team outwits Savage. The synopsis for the movie is as follows
“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.”
