Vandal Savage’s assholery is twofold: One, he’s an evil despotic villain who has spent centuries coveting and revelling in power and control. Two, he’s really hard to kill. So naturally, only a team-up of some of DC’s deadliest criminals stand a chance at stopping him in the upcoming Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay.

The new trailer sees Amanda Waller (Vanessa Williams) form a new version of the team — including Deadshot (Christian Slater), Harley Quinn (Tara Strong), Copperhead (Gideon Emery), Bronze Tiger (Billy Brown), Killer Frost (Kristin Bauer van Straten) and Captain Boomerang (Liam McIntyre) — to hunt down Savage on a personal directive from the shady Argus operative. But this time, the Squad is going to find themselves facing a similar group of malcontents trying to stop them.

Yes, Savage basically has his own squad this time around, with his daughter — who, I must stress, is called Scandal Savage, which is fantastic — leading a team of rogues featuring everyone from Professor Pyg to Zoom himself.

This would be hard enough if they didn’t then have to go and take out a quasi-immortal arsehole on top of dealing with a villainous foil to themselves. Then again, that makes this pretty much the perfect mission for the Suicide Squad, doesn’t it?

Hell to Pay releases digitally in March, followed by a physical release shortly after in April.


  • Well thats the worst/most boring harley quinn i’ve seen.

    These DC animated movies used to be so good, now they are just mediocre, makes me sad. I’ll likely still watch this at some point and hold out hope they get better again.

  • Why change the way Killer Frost, Deadshot and Harley look? They were fine in the last movie. Give us back the fat Wall. Oh and why do we have the least interesting version of Bronze Tiger here?

    • As someone who is completely sick of the “Hot Topic Harley” version of the character, I don’t mind them revamping the look to be similar to the classic style. I’ve never liked the Harley Quinn character overall but the classic version is a bit easier to stomach.

      In terms of why they redesigned some of them, could it have something to do with the fact that Assault on Arkham was almost a follow on to the Arkham Origins game, rather than being in the main DC animated universe continuity?

      • How does she look like classic Harley? She literally just looks the same as the first movie instead of clothes, except now she seems to have no mask or accompanying personality.
