Suicide Squad is the next franchise to get an anime adaptation – and it’s looking pretty good. The new series Isekai Suicide Squadwas revealed at Anime Expo 2023, according to IGNand right now you can watch a trailer of the new anime.
The trailer is short and prominently features anime stylized versions of Harley Quinn and the Joker. It also hints at how the series will live up to its Isekai name and transport the characters to another world: one shot includes a close-up shot of a flying dragon, for example, and there are some brief glimpses of floating islands throughout. (The series looks like this could would be a new entry in James Gunn’s “Elseworlds” strategy for DC movies and shows not directly related to the main DC Universe line, but I’ve yet to see that brand attached to the project.)
Unfortunately, it may be a while before we see Isekai Suicide Squad for itself, given that the trailer and website don’t include any kind of release window. And given that the new Suicide Squad game, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice Leaguewas recently pushed back from May to February, it may be a while before we see anything new from DC’s band of villains.
