Ever since the release of Batman: Arkham Origins, the 2013 prequel to Rocksteady's Batman Arkham series, there have been rumors and whispers of a full-on Suicide Squad video game.  Those rumblings grew into tremors during the promotion and release window for WB's Suicide Squad film but it looks as if the project has been shelved.  Per Kotaku, it seems WB Montreal will be focusing on a new Batman title which sees Damian Wayne under the cowl instead of Bruce Wayne.

In 2007's Batman #666, a future version of Damian is depicted, one that has taken on his father's mantle but has somehow gained supernatural abilities. Also different from his father is Damian's willingness to kill or maim his opponents if he deems it necessary.

As for the Suicide Squad game, it was reportedly a co-op game that had been in development for 2 years but was cancelled earlier this month after failing to impress key executives.  It should also be noted that WB Montreal's top two executives, studio lead Martin Carrier and executive producer Reid Schneider left the company earlier this year.  Stéphane Roy, previously an executive producer at Eidos Montreal and who worked on the latest Deus Ex video game, has recently been hired to fill the vacancy.

@MrPositive - Batman can certainly do that but the movie has to be good in order to pass a billion.
