Suicide Squad Kill: The Justice League made an appearance at The Game Awards tonight with a new trailer that features some cutscene footage confirming the appearance of Batman, and with it is a touching but brief tribute to Kevin Conroy, who apparently, was able to voice the Caped Crusader before his sudden passing.
Presenting the trailer at The Game Awards ceremony, host Geoff Keighley casually dropped a release date for the upcoming game from Arkham series developers Rocksteady. Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will arrive on new gen consoles on May 26, 2023.
If you missed it, Rocksteady is coming back with another DC action game but this time it will feature the Suicide Squad pitted against the Justice League. The above trailer appears to take place in the aftermath of a fight against the Flash. The (anti) heroes find themselves within a bad situation turned worse when they find out that they are now facing the Dark Knight.
As the Suicide Squad trailer draws to a close, the crowd is treated to that iconic Batman voice that only Kevin Conroy can deliver, treating us to his famous lines, “I am vengeance. I am the night. I am Batman!”
Kevin Conroy was the voice for Batman in a lot of DC media that started in the early 90s including the 1992 animated series, the Arkham series of games and some of the DC animated movies that have been released over the years. He also put in a live action portrayal of Bruce Wayne on the CW Network’s “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover for its various Arrowverse shows.
His performances as Batman, frequently alongside Mark Hamill’s equally iconic turn as the Joker gave life and emotion to the characters that a lot of fans still hold dear to this day.
Conroy succumbed to cancer on the 10th of November this year at the age of 66. The loss of Conroy when fans heard the news was definitely felt as a collective amount of mourning, condolences and tributes were made to him.
Once again, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will be released on the 26th of May, 2023 for new gen consoles including the Xbox Series X and S.
