Some pretty major story spoilers for the upcoming Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League video game have found their way online following apparent leaks stemming from a recent closed alpha test, and audio from one cut scene, in particular, has not gone over very well with fans.

Spoilers follow.

The plot of the open world co-op action game focuses on members of Task Force X attempting to take down the legendary heroes of the Justice League, who are under the control of the villainous Brainiac. The audio in question (there's also a screenshot), appears to confirm that Batman - who is voiced by the late Kevin Conroy - will be killed off by Harley Quinn, who seemingly shoots the Caped Crusader point-blank in the head.

The uproar appears to stem not only from Batman's death (though we're not sure why anyone would be surprised that a game called Kill the Justice League... kills the Justice League), but the fact that this particular take on the Dark Knight from the previous Arkham games meets his end, and that it marks Conroy's final voice performance as the character.

Rocksteady has even come in for some backlash, but it's important to keep in mind that the developers of the game had no idea that this would be Conroy's last time playing Batman when they decided to kill the hero off.

Rocksteady has now released the following statement on the leaks:

They kill the justice league

Shocker , gameplay wise not into this . I hate that everyone is essentially just Peter quill in the guardians game. Why tf would I be captain boomerang and I can barely use the boomerangs

I get they didn’t want to create different movesets but maybe just do that?

Batman will not be killed off here, so let's all just calm down. How do I know this ? Besides him being WB's main IP, James Gunn confirmed yesterday that the Arkhamverse will be getting more games after this. There's no Arkhamverse without Batman.

@Th3Batman - they could just say it’s set between any of the 4 games lol he’s gonna die

@Th3Batman - No one thinks this will be the last Batman appearance in a game.

The issue is it’s Kevin Conroy’s last performance as Batman. And rather than a touching tribute, he gets shot in the face. People have had a strong reaction to his real world passing; so seeing “their Batman” be offed so brutally is upsetting to them.

I’m not “offended,” but I can see how others would find it bothersome. To me, I think it’s at least distasteful. I don’t know how to rectify it though. Obviously Kevin was fine with the script as he recorded it; and nobody knew it would be his last performance.

@MG0019 - what tribute can they put in the game this late outside of something in the game credits?

Were they supposed to rewrite the game script and draft new gameplay code etc ? People need to be serious for a second like you said it wasn’t written with the expectation conroy was going to die , that’s not how this works

Th3Batman - 12/18/2023, 4:24 PM
@MG0019 - Whatever this clip shows, it's out of context. Of all the league members to kill off here, batman is the least likely. This game will not kill batman off.

Out of context, seems like a really dumb decision, but within the context of the story they're telling who knows if it'll work. I'm probably not gonna play it anyway, loved Asylum and City and enjoyed Origins but found Knight disappointing with all the annoying Batmobile missions so between that and the gap of however many years it's been since that game came out I think I've pretty much lost interest in the franchise and nothing I've seen so far about this game makes me wanna jump back into that world.

@IronMan616 - wb wanted a game as a service.
IronMan616
IronMan616 - 12/18/2023, 7:27 PM
@Origame - I’m not much of a gamer, but as service means where people keep buying stuff like The Avengers game or the Fortnight my kid plays or is it like the last Halo game I bought years ago where the main campaign was 4 hours long and you keep playing against people online?

Either way fn greedy asses, I want a Superman game.
Origame
Origame - 12/18/2023, 7:33 PM
@IronMan616 - yeah. The avengers game and fortnite are perfect examples of games as a service.
IronMan616
IronMan616 - 12/18/2023, 8:31 PM
@Origame - well that sucks. That’s how I got bored of the Avengers game pretty quickly and it had Iron Man in it!

Just give me something like the Arkham games

I don’t even like Batman as much as many other folks and never played the Arkham games, but even I got upset reading that.

From what I know and have read, the Arkham games are modern classics and one of the best depictions of Batman, why would they kill him off and have it be done by Harleen of all people ?

Fans are not happy.

What a shock.

What happened to that audio play continuation of BTAS they were doing

Did they even get a chance to work on that?

If so, take the recordings and put it to animation instead

Could put together a mini season of BTAS direct to video. Depending on how many episode they actually recorded
Origame
Origame - 12/18/2023, 4:27 PM
Ok, look, what's the point of implying his death in arkham knight if they're just gonna bring him back to be killed by Harley of all people?

This probably wouldn't bother me if it weren't an already established batman.

If this game was set in a separate universe from Arkham it would be fine but sense it's not.... Well then fcuk em. The studio deserves the backlash. It wouldn't surprise me if this game was originally meant to be it's own thing but the higher ups told them to keep it tied to the og arkham games in order to help sale it better. Hell the game's tone looks and feels nothing like arkham.

Now that’s what I call a bebop at rocksteady.

I think having a post credits where they either just clone the guy or just show that this version she killed was actually a clone is the closest you can get to rectifying the choice.

And if he didn’t pass, it would be a different story.

TheManWithoutFear - 12/18/2023, 4:56 PM
Eh I don't think Batman dies. Especially not if its Arkham Batman they spent 3 games on. They love that guy more than the fans do. Probably a fake out somehow.

Creatively this doesn't make a lot of sense, to bring the character back and then kill the character off like that. What's the point writing wise.

McMurdo - 12/18/2023, 5:24 PM
Harley Quinn would simply never have the opportunity to kill Batman. Period.
bkmeijer1
bkmeijer1 - 12/18/2023, 5:38 PM
For some reason I figured this took place before Arkham Knight, so that's probably where my shock comes from. Think it's daring an interesting though, to actually kill the Justice League.

Like with The Last of Us Part 2 though, I'm gonna wait for the full game to see what the context is that this happens in. Spoilers don't matter then.

I feel like everyone is ignoring the incredibly likely ending where they can bring them all back, or time travel, or go through the multiverse, or whatever… these are comic book characters, no one has to stay dead, and they probably won’t.

Plenty of ways he can “die” in this scene, and still be back in the future, or even by the time the credits roll.

Im surprised that this game isn't out yet. I was under the impression that it had already released last year.

I was already on the fence on this one, if this is true, I'll gladly pass.

This will be a fake out, like Braniac has captured and cloned the Justice League so the ones fighting and losing to the Suicide Squad are alien imposters, robots or clones based on the OG team that will be revealed to be in stasis on Brainiac’s ship.

hainesy - 12/18/2023, 7:02 PM
Didn't they already kill him in Arkham Knight and Gotham Knights? It's a fricking comic book property. They kill people all the time and then bring them back to life. Relax everyone.

as someone who played the closed alpha, i can't say much but the way it feels to crontorl the characters leaves much to desire, i was kinda excited but after playing it, imm pass on it unless its heavily discounted

This would be like getting mad about Logan if Huge Jackman died after filming.
