Geoff Johns Talks Suicide Squad and Superman Video Games

Body

686 Geoff Johns, DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer, recently talked about the Suicide Squad video game that was announced back in 2010, and that it is in development.

"We're working on Suicide Squad; it's in development right now," Johns told Kataku.com. "I'm really super excited about it. Because of the concept, you have a game where any of the lead characters can conceivably die and it's not a stunt. Some really cool story could come out of that."

The Suicide Squad comic book is part of the DC Comics reboot as one of the "New 52" written by Adam Glass. The current team is comprised of incarcerated supervillains who work for the Government undertaking various high risk missions in exchange for lighter sentences. Suffice to say, members are dropping left and right!

Previously, Johns described the game as “hardcore violent” at the 2010 San Diego Comic Con.

Johns also briefly mentions a new video game for the Man of Steel. There is a current rumor, of sorts, that Batman: Arkham City writer Paul Dini may be undertaking a new Superman video game, as Dini has mentioned Supes is on his want list of characters to do.

Johns mentions how Superman is always thought about, but finding the right story and studio is key to the character.

"We talk about it a lot, about how flipping up robots for four hours would get old." Johns said. "I think all games come down to gameplay and the right studio. I'm sure the right studio could crack it. Rocksteady has a real passion for Batman, and I think that's why they make a great game."
