It’s been teased that the Justice League and the Suicide Squad may eventually cross paths on the big screen. But DC isn’t going to make fans wait too long to see that confrontation play out… It’s happening later this year in the six-issue Justice League vs. Suicide Squad miniseries.
Prior to the New 52 reboot, the Justice League and the Suicide Squad were aware of each other, but the Justice League vs. Suicide Squad story will be the first confrontation between the two factions in over five years. Along with the announcement, DC released an intriguing piece of artwork for the mini that features members of both teams down for the count while Harley Quinn and Batman stand side-by-side wielding Green Lantern’s ring, Wonder Woman’s lasso, Deadshot’s eyepiece, and Katana’s sword!
According to DC, “another deadly strike team is lurking in the shadows, one that could expose dark secrets throughout the DC Universe, with ties to the hidden truths of Rebirth.” The announcement also noted that “longtime enemies such as Batman and Deadshot, the Flash and Boomerang, and Wonder Woman and Harley Quinn will have to put aside their differences when an evil threat once thought lost to the DC Universe makes their return.”
The Justice League vs. Suicide Squad storyline will begin in December with a prelude chapter in Suicide Squad #8. Joshua Williamson is writing the weekly miniseries, which will feature artwork by Jason Fabok and Tony S. Daniel. Williamson will also be writing the Suicide Squad tie-in issues, while Tim Seeley will serve as the guest-writer of Justice League‘s tie-in issues.
