Watch the New 'Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay' Clip as the R-Rated Animated Film Arrives on Digital

Prepare to root for the bad guys when Amanda Waller sends her band of misfit DC Super-Villains on an all-new, action-packed secret mission in Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay, the next film in the popular, ongoing series of DC Universe Movies. It's now available on Digital.


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.

This clip features Deadshot and Captain Boomerang -- at this moment, neighbors in jail -- engaging in their usual antagonistic banter. Christian Slater and Liam McIntyre voice Deadshot and Boomerang, respectively.

Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment, the f…

You don't have to be familiar with the original series to enjoy this new iteration.

Humanity has become too dependent on technology and this act of terrorism is supposed to be the first wave of resistance, a preventive measure to keep humans from destroying themselves. In the aftermath of the attack of one of the world's biggest technology companies, one man survives, Morgan Stryker, maimed and severely wounded, unknowingly undergoes a transform…

REVIEW: 'Hit-Girl' #2 by Mark Millar, Ricardo Lopez Ortiz, and Sunny Gho

Hit-Girl and Mano continue their reign of terror on Colombia's criminals. With a cache of stolen Russian spy gadgets and weapons, there are no limits to the imagination on how to exterminate the bad guys.

Writer: Mark Millar Artist: Ricardo Lopez Ortiz, Sunny Gho Letterer: Melina Mikulic Editor: Rachael Fulton Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: March 28, 2018 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★★ (5/5)
Everyone knows Mark Millar is a talented writer and has been for a long time. This is not news but I'm reminded just how much so when I look at his new comics that reside in the 'Kick-Ass' universe. His relaunched 'Kick-Ass' title starring an African-American single mom and military vet, Patience Lee, is more nuanced and thoughtful than the original but retains the ultra-violence the series is known for. The new 'Hit-Girl' series lives squarely in the world Dave Lizewski left behind when he hung up his costume. Mindy McCready is Millar's favor…

KICKSTARTER SPOTLIGHT: 'Black & Blue' The Underwater Alien Attack Graphic Novel

Earth has been invaded. An alien species has taken 99.99% of the population. But we have a secret weapon: Saltwater. Something in it destroys them. So, we flooded the planet. But they’re still out there, waiting for any chance to pick off the remnants of the human race.
