Whether you side with the haters or not, there's no denying that Rocksteady Studios is back. A whopping nine years after the credits rolled on Batman: Arkham Knight, the beloved developer is back to do another lap in the Batmobile. But this time, it's someone else at the wheel.

After three games of focusing on the Dark Knight, Rocksteady is spreading its wings with an altogether grander affair. Planting a bomb in our heads and putting us in the shoes of Task Force X, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is sending us on our deadliest mission yet. 

SPOILER WARNING: Major spoilers for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League ahead!

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League fans already have sequel plans

While there was plenty of discourse around the lack of review codes for Kill the Justice League, that hasn't stopped some of you from doing your best Barry Allen impression and completing the antihero ensemble in record time. Most of us have barely read Amanda Waller's mission briefing, as others are already looking to a sequel. 

Over on the Kill the Justice League subreddit, one fan championed Jason Todd/Red Hood for a mythical sequel. After seeing Kevin Conroy's Batman lead the franchise, his death at the hands of Harley Quinn has become the title's biggest talking point. The OP suggests a sequel could follow Red Hood out for revenge.

If not Suicide Squad: Avenge the Justice League, remember that Red Hood has a long and colourful history as a member of Task Force X in the comics. We know Todd exists in the Arkhamverse, and having been revealed as the titular Arkham Knight of 2015's game, he took up his Red Hood identity. 

Kill the Justice League fans name their perfect DLC characters

There's already been an impressive leak of DLC content for Kill the Justice League, with Deadshot's daughter, Killer Croc, and Deathstroke all potentially in the pipeline. Given the bang and burn nature of the Suicide Squad, we've got through a lot of recruits in the comics, meaning this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Kill the Justice League is off to a good start and seems to have won around some of its live service critics. Hoping it doesn't go the way of Marvel's Avengers, being killed off before it could complete its roadmap, we could genuinely see content for years to come - just look at GTA Online.

Others have put together their own DLC wishlist of characters we hope to see. Graffiti art of Black Manta hints that the famous Aquaman villain is out there somewhere, while it also suggests the King of the Seven Seas could be coming... possibly as a boss battle at a later date.

Elsewhere, Suicide Squad staples like Bronze Tiger and Killer Frost would be popular choices. We know the DCU's James Gunn wants to bring the worlds of gaming and live-action together, and we can think of no better way than adding a likeness of John Cena's Peacemaker. 

The world is Rocksteady's oyster, and whether we milk Kill the Justice League for all its worth, power ahead for a sequel, or return to Gotham for a full-blown Arkham Knight sequel, we're reminded of why we love the Arkhamverse in the first place.
