Upcoming Batman, Suicide Squad games possibly leaked by domain registrations

The title of the next Batman game may have been leaked by website domain registrations, alongside possible confirmation that a Suicide Squad game is in the works.

The registrations, which were filed earlier this month and spotted by ResetEra’s DriftingOrbit, apparently point to Gotham Knights as the next Batman game. Also discovered were registrations for a Suicide Squad game and a project titled Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League.

Boosting the legitimacy of the titles is that the domains were filed by MarkMonitor, which also manages the registration for WB Games’ website.

Batman: Gotham Knights was a comic book series that ran from 2000 to 2006, featuring Batman and his extended family that includes Batgirl, Nightwing, Robin, Oracle, Catwoman, and Alfred. A game with the same title will likely bring these characters into a more prominent role compared with the Batman: Arkham games. Gotham Knights is rumored to be in the works at WB Games Montreal, which was behind the prequel Batman: Arkham Origins.

Suicide Squad, meanwhile, is rumored to be the next project of Rocksteady, the studio behind the Batman: Arkham trilogy.

DC Fandome on August 22

The hints at the upcoming Batman and Suicide Squad games support the announcement that WB Games has something planned for DC FanDome, a free virtual event on August 22. The new titles may be revealed at the event, but without official confirmation so far, players will have to wait.

DC FanDome will also feature film, TV, and comic announcements, and will feature the cast and creators behind The Batman and The Justice League‘s Snyder Cut, among many others.

Digital Trends has reached out to DC to confirm whether WB Games will announce new titles at the virtual event. We will update this article as soon as we hear back.

Rosario Dawson enters a warzone in HBO Max’s DMZ trailer
Rosario Dawson in DMZ.

There's a war coming to America in HBO Max's upcoming miniseries DMZ. The new show is based upon Brian Wood and artist Riccardo Burchielli's DMZ comic book series that was published between 2005 and 2012 by DC Comics' Vertigo imprint. In the comic and the show, America was struck by a Second Civil War, which transformed Manhattan into a shattered demilitarized zone.

The miniseries is taking some liberties with the original comic by reimagining the lead character as a medic named Alma Ortega. Rosario Dawson will play Alma in the series, and the first trailer reveals why she's going into the DMZ. She has to find the son that she was forced to leave behind. Meanwhile, in the ruins of what was once New York City, Parco Delgado (Benjamin Bratt) is emerging as the power-hungry leader who will stop at nothing to seize control.

Yes, this is real: A Wonder Twins movie is coming to HBO Max
Zan and Jayna are the Wonder

Modern comic book movie fans may not be familiar with the Wonder Twins, Zan and Jayna. However, that could soon change in a major way. The Hollywood Reporter has broken the news that HBO Max is producing a new live-action Wonder Twins original movie. And this will be the twins' most significant project in their 45 years of history.

Older fans may remember that Zan and Jayna made their debut in 1977 as the teenage sidekicks of DC's animated heroes in The All-New Super Friends Hour. Essentially, they were audience surrogate characters who tended to get in a lot of trouble alongside their wacky space monkey, Gleek. The twins are alien siblings from the planet Exxor who have shape-shifting powers that can only be activated when they make physical contact with each other. Zan's powers are limited to assuming the form of a liquid, while Jayna has more variety with her ability to assume the form of any animal.
