Suicide Squad ISEKAI Official Trailer
The adaptation news was revealed on the third day of Anime Expo 2023. It is unexpected that Warner Bros Japan and Wit Studio worked together to create this maddening original anime featuring the criminal group in the DC universe.
The trailer was released one day later on their official page. It is confirmed that Harley Quinn and Joker will be in the series. Moreover, the manager of Suicide Squad, Amanda Waller, also seems to be present in the series. There is a chance that other villains will show up in the future trailer.
The visual teaser was also released at the same time as the trailer. It shows Harley Quinn tearing her pearl necklace while grinning with her tongue out. Looking closely, there are three brooches on her clothes. One shows a clown which symbolizes Joker. The other two are still a mystery, but the black with a target likely symbolizes Deadshot and the red one is Peacemaker.
Currently, there is no information besides what’s inside the trailer which only features the staff of the anime. But, Wit Studio’s Geroge Wada stated that there is a chance that other DC projects will continue if this Suicide Squad ISEKAI is successful.
Suicide Squad ISEKAI staff
As mentioned above, the entire lineup of the Suicide Squad ISEKAI has been introduced. Warner Bros Japan and Wit Studio will collab on this project. Osada Eri (Jujutsu Kaisen, Gintama Episode Director) is responsible for directing the show.
The screenplay is written by Teppei Nagatsuki (Original Creator of Re: Zero) and Eiji Umehara (Beelzebub). Both of them worked together for Vivy: Flourite Eye’s Song which was created by Wit Studio.
Additionally, Suehiro Kenichiro (Re: Zero, Golden Kamuy) will be responsible for composing the music for the series.
