While there have been rumors that the Justice League will take on the Suicide Squad on the big screen, we’ll first see the two teams battle each other inside the cover of Justice League vs. Suicide Squad that kicks off in December.
The story focuses on Batman’s continued feud with Amanda Waller over the need for Task Force X.
The core of the comic-book event — which pits Batman and Superman’s superhero team against the covert team of supervillains working for ruthless government operative Amanda Waller — will transpire over six issues, two in December, four in January. It will also tie into “Suicide Squad” #9 and #10 and issues #12 and #13 of “Justice League” during January. “This is something DC had been talking about for a while, even before I came on,” said writer Joshua Williamson (“The Flash”).
Though there are a lot of fans of the Suicide Squad team because of the movie, according to the Wall Street Journal that broke the news, it looks like Killer Frost will be the focus character in the series.
The miniseries will explore themes like redemption and corruption, and the two teams will also find a common foe against whom they must unite.
Obviously, there will be ramifications across other titles, but according to Jim Lee, fans don’t necessarily want stories mired in continuity.
