Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay Trailer and Release Details


They’re baaaaack. Task Force X has been reassembled and this time they’re up against an immortal, the one and only Vandal Savage, in the new DC animated film Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay. Hitting DVD and Blu-ray on April 10, this film follows the squad we know and love (Deadshot, Harley Quinn, Captain Boomerang, Copperhead, Killer Frost, and Bronze Tiger) on their most dangerous and important mission yet. A mission so important that Amanda Waller herself is overseeing it’s successful completion.

 

And just in case you think this is going to be a watered down version of the comic, this movie takes a cue from other DC animated films and has gotten itself an R rating for, among other things, strong bloody violence throughout. Don’t take our word for it, check out the trailer below:

The first thought that comes to mind after seeing the gang in action: this looks fun! And with Christian Slater voicing Deadshot and Batman royalty Tara Strong as Harley Quinn, we’re looking at a strong cast to go along what will surely be an action-packed 90 minutes.

 

Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay finds Amanda Waller’s top secret “Task Force X” – Deadshot, Bronze Tiger, Killer Frost, Captain Boomerang, Harley Quinn and Copperhead – on a mission to retrieve a mystical object so powerful that they’re willing to risk their own lives to steal it. But the Suicide Squad isn’t the only group of villains seeking to possess the object. The race is on for the golden prize … and, to stay alive, second place isn’t an option.

 

The all-star cast is led by Christian Slater (Mr. Robot, Archer, True Romance) in his DC Universe Movies debut as the voice of Deadshot, who heads “Task Force X” alongside Billy Brown (How To Get Away With Murder) as Bronze Tiger, Liam McIntyre (Spartacus: War of the Damned, The Flash) as Captain Boomerang, Kristin Bauer van Straten (True Blood, Once Upon a Time) as Killer Frost, Gideon Emery (Teen Wolf) as Copperhead, Tara Strong (Batman: The Killing Joke) as Harley Quinn and their “boss,” Vanessa Williams (Ugly Betty, Desperate Housewives) as Amanda Waller. Villainous forces in the film include C. Thomas Howell (Outcast, The Outsiders, Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox) as Zoom, Dania Ramirez (Devious Maids, Heroes, Once Upon a Time) as Scandal Savage, James Urbaniak (Difficult People, The Venture Bros.) as Professor Pyg, Julie Nathanson (The Zeta Project, Beverly Hills 90210) as Silver Banshee and Jewelee, and Jim Pirri (Injustice 2) as Vandal Savage & Vertigo.

 

Other Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay voice cast members include Greg Grunberg (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Heroes) as Steel Maxum, Dave Fennoy (Batman: Arkham Knight, Batman: The Telltale Series) as Blockbuster & Tobias Whale, Cissy Jones (Firewatch) as Knockout, Natalie Lander (The Middle, Justice League Action) as Darma, Trevor Devall (Johnny Test) as Punch, Dave Boat (Family Guy, The Good Dinosaur) as Harvey Dent/Two-Face, and Matthew Mercer (Critical Role, Batman: Bad Blood) as Savage Gunman.

 

Producer Sam Liu (Gotham by Gaslight, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract) also directs Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay from a script by co-producer Alan Burnett (Justice League vs. Teen Titans). Executive Producers are Sam Register and James Tucker (Batman vs. Two-Face, Justice League Dark).

 

Along with the movie, the Blu-ray and DVD editions of the film contain several bonus features including a look at the next DC animated film, The Death of Superman, which aims to stick close to the source material (fingers crossed for 90’s Superboy). Here’s a list of what you can expect depending on which version you buy:
