Some pretty major story spoilers for Rocksteady's Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League video game found their way online late last year following apparent leaks stemming from a closed alpha test, and the details of one particular cut scene did not go over very well with fans.

We previously only had audio of the scene in question, but the full sequence has now found its way online.

You may have heard about this already, but if not, major 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. At one point, the team manages to capture Batman - voiced by the late Kevin Conroy - who is then killed off by Harley Quinn, who taunts the Caped Crusader before shooting him point-blank in the head.

The uproar mostly stems not only from Batman's death, 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.

Of course, nobody should really be surprised that a game called Kill the Justice League... kills the Justice League, but it seems to be the manner of Batman's execution that hasn't sat well with some fans.

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 him off.

Earlier today, we found out that the early-release version of the game had been pulled offline due to a strange glitch that let players “have full story completion” after logging on for the first time.

Check out the scene for yourselves below, and let us know if you plan on giving the game a go (it officially releases today).

"From the creators of the Batman: Arkham series, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is a genre-defying third-person action shooter where the ultimate band of misfits must do the impossible: Kill the Justice League. Pre-order and get Classic Outfits. An internet connection is required to play Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League solo or via online co-op.

Rocksteady, what happened to you?
Dotanuki - 1/30/2024, 8:33 AM
Such entertainment.
HammerLegFoot - 1/30/2024, 8:34 AM
Well when it was announced that The Suicide Squad would be killing the Justice League...I figured the Justice League would die. Like remember when the Death of Superman came out? I figured Superman would die. But that's just me.
Kadara - 1/30/2024, 9:55 AM
@HammerLegFoot - I would think people would be more outraged that members don't get killed off but that's just me.
Arthorious - 1/30/2024, 10:28 AM
@HammerLegFoot - but then retconned it (like they always do) and Superman didn’t really die, just went into a comatose state.
Th3Batman - 1/30/2024, 8:34 AM
They couldn't have given their version of Batman and Kevin Conroy a worse send-off if they tried.
FireandBlood - 1/30/2024, 8:37 AM
@Th3Batman - Tbf it was never meant to be a send off for Conroy, and Arkham Bats had his sendoff in 2015.
Th3Batman - 1/30/2024, 8:45 AM
@FireandBlood - Arkham Bats did indeed have a good send-off, yet for some reason they brought him back just to shit on his legacy and undo all the work they did in his trilogy. Why not just set this in its own separate universe instead ?
Urubrodi - 1/30/2024, 8:52 AM
@FireandBlood - Arkham Bats had his sendoff in 2015... until he didn't and they brought him back for this thing.
Dotanuki - 1/30/2024, 11:54 AM
@Th3Batman - he gets raped in a prison shower ala Snyder’s desire?
ObserverIO - 1/30/2024, 8:38 AM
This is not his swan song.

He will be back when Multiversus officially releases. That will probably the last time, officially.
FireandBlood - 1/30/2024, 8:39 AM
[frick] it, it’s not like we’re getting any more Arkham Bats anyway. Comic fans need to normalise letting things end.

Urubrodi - 1/30/2024, 8:51 AM
@FireandBlood - Well it would help if the studio did the same. Rocksteady is the one that decided to bring him back for no good reason just to kill him off in a pathetic way.
FireandBlood - 1/30/2024, 9:37 AM
@Urubrodi - His story was over, it’s no big deal.
Urubrodi - 1/30/2024, 9:44 AM
@FireandBlood - If his story is over then leave him alone lol of course it's a big deal, they freaking killed Batman in a pathetic way. You spend 100s of hours being a complete badass in some of the best gaming series ever and then they just take the same character and shoot him in the head. It'd be like bringing back Tobey for No Way Home after concluding his trilogy years ago and then shooting him in the head soon after he shows up.
FireandBlood - 1/30/2024, 10:42 AM
@Urubrodi - Just because his story is over, doesn’t mean he can’t serve a purpose in somebody else’s. Like I said, fans need to normalise letting things end. It’s never this deep. The game looks shit anyways, no need for the fake outrage.
Urubrodi - 1/30/2024, 10:51 AM
@FireandBlood - And his purpose is dying in a lame way? lol On my end is not outrage, just disappointment that they took a very well crafted universe and shat on it with a bad game with crap gameplay and shit story. In an ideal world I would have liked to be interested in playing it. And I think that's the wrong way of analysing the situation, who needs to be held accountable for this game is the studio. If gamers don't complain then studios get complacent and assume that they can just release any crap and get away with it.
FireandBlood - 1/30/2024, 12:04 PM
@Urubrodi - Complaining we’ll get you no where. Just don’t buy the game. It speaks louder.
Urubrodi - 1/30/2024, 12:08 PM
@FireandBlood - I won't, my game for February will be Granblue Fantasy Relink and for March will be Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth. But I still think it's important for gamers to be vocal about what tehy don't like (within reason of course) so that the studio can hopefully improve. But of course studios pay more attention when it hurts their wallet. That I agree 100%.
FireandBlood - 1/30/2024, 12:13 PM
@Urubrodi - Actually got me thinking, what is even coming out for me this year 🤔

Only one’s I’m hyped for in ‘24 of the top of my head is Snake Eater remake and DBZ Budonai Tenkachi 4, but I’m probably missing a few. It’s all about GTA 6 for me, but that’s next year 😞
Urubrodi - 1/30/2024, 12:50 PM
@FireandBlood - Well apart from the 2 I mentioned Black Myth Wukong, Rise of the Ronin and Stellar Blade are some that I'm looking forward to. Plus, hopefully the Elden Ring DLC.
FireandBlood - 1/30/2024, 1:00 PM
@Urubrodi - Venom! And that Ubisoft Star Wars game ✨

Knew I forgot a few, and of course, that Elden Ring DLC
Urubrodi - 1/30/2024, 1:05 PM
@FireandBlood - Oh shit the Star Wars: Outlwaws yeah, was forgetting that as well. I think Venom is only next year though, according to those leaks.
Matchesz - 1/30/2024, 8:41 AM
They trying real hard to kill the comic book genre.
Matchesz - 1/30/2024, 8:53 AM
Kill off Batman and introduced a lgbtq zesty Joker what are they smoking lol. They couldnt give us any other version of Batman to kill. Had to be THE Batman voiced by Kevin lol.. okay
Slotherin - 1/30/2024, 9:15 AM
@Matchesz - lgbtq zesty Joker? What did I miss?
cyclopsprime - 1/30/2024, 9:48 AM
@Slotherin - a free dlc character
HashTagSwagg - 1/30/2024, 10:06 AM
@Slotherin - Their new Joker is as straight as snake way
Slotherin - 1/30/2024, 4:52 PM
@cyclopsprime - I gotta see this
slickrickdesigns - 1/30/2024, 8:43 AM
This game had me interested fora minute but I’d rather just play MW3
Urubrodi - 1/30/2024, 8:53 AM
Guess I'll stick with Granblue Fantasy Relink until Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is out.
SATW42 - 1/30/2024, 8:53 AM
so they kille dhim not knowing he would die, and fans are mad they killed him. If they didn't kill him and had to have someone else voice him, fans would be mad. they gave the moment and the universe more heft by having it be an established batman instead of some random one, fans are mad. If it was a random batman and conroy was still alive, and someone else voiced him, fans would be mad. If it was a random Batman but still voiced by conroy, fans would complain "why make it a different batman instead of the arkham one"

Basically, fans suck.
Slotherin - 1/30/2024, 9:17 AM
@SATW42 - I'm pretty sure if it was disconnected that would be a good middle.
I don't think when this initially dropped a trailer that most people took it as being same universe.
GhostDog - 1/30/2024, 8:55 AM
The game looks meh but… it is "KILL” the justice league not "respectfully and pleasantly unalive” the justice leauge
FireandBlood - 1/30/2024, 9:38 AM
@GhostDog - The fans wanted cookie cutter and now they’re upset
