Suicide Squad is out for a new secret mission

Amanda Walker is leading our favorite villains for a mayhem filled action packed secret mission in the upcoming Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay. The latest DC Universe movie will be released starting March 27, 2018 on digital and on Ultra HD Blu-ray™ Combo Pack, Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD April 10, 2018. the animated film will be rated R for strong bloody violence throughout, sexual content, brief graphic nudity, and some drug material. It is the Suicide Squad so I expect it to be at the same level of violence and mayhem as well as appealing to the same audience as the live action film. It looks like loads of grownup/older teen fun with characters that some non comic book reading fans will be meeting for the first time. 

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.

Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay is a definite thrill ride for fans, mixing non-stop action with plenty of humor – all while watching villains go head-to-head with villains,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing. “This film has an all-star cast, an extremely accomplished filmmaking team, and the perfect mix of excitement and fun. We’re proud to bring Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay to audiences this spring.”

 

 

I am so excited about the cast for the new new animated film heroes to villains and everyone in between it’s a who’s who of actors and voice actors that we all know! This will be the first time Christian Slater (Mr. Robot, Archer, True Romance) joins the DC Universe Movies where he will be 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.
