‘Suicide Squad ISEKAI’ Anime Debuts New Explosive Trailer

Warner Bros. has just launched a thrilling trailer for the much-anticipated DC Comics’ Suicide Squad ISEKAI anime series, confirming a July 2024 premiere.

DC Japan’s official account dropped the Suicide Squad ISEKAI trailer, highlighting the series’ blend of iconic DC characters and ISEKAI elements, where characters find themselves in another world. The ending theme, Go-Getters, by popular VTuber Mori Calliope, adds to the excitement, indicating a high-production value and engaging soundtrack.

The Suicide Squad ISEKAI trailer showcases the Joker, Harley Quinn, and other Suicide Squad members embarking on a fantastical mission in a magic-filled realm. Tasked by Amanda Waller, the team must navigate this new world within 72 hours to prevent the bombs in their necks from detonating.

The official synopsis reads:

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!

This adaptation introduces Suicide Squad to the ISEKAI genre, famous for its narratives of characters thrust into unfamiliar realms. With Studio Wit at the helm, known for Frieren: Beyond Journey’s End, Vinland Saga, and Spy x Family, the anime promises breathtaking visuals and action sequences that rival live-action films.

The Suicide Squad’s evolution from a 1950s military group to today’s villainous ensemble highlights its enduring appeal. The team’s mainstream popularity surged with the inclusion of Harley Quinn in 2011, leading to 2016 and 2021 feature films, along with a recent video game.

While the live-action movies have seen mixed success, the anime (directed by Eri Osada) offers a fresh take on the characters. Fans can anticipate Suicide Squad ISEKAI‘s release on Max in July 2024, with both live-action Suicide Squad films currently available on the platform.
