The new gameplay for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League may have pleased some DC Comics fans, but not so much for those who were hoping it wouldn't be a live-service game, and what angered some even more is that the title supposedly could have been a Superman game, but is it true?
This week we finally got to see a bit more of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, the new game from Warner Bros' franchises with a service model. The new glimpse sparked discussion among fans, and a post emerged in which some users claimed that Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League was originally focused on the Son of Krypton.
Was Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League going to be a Superman game?
"It's pretty funny that you're playing in the ruins of their Superman game," tweeted user (X) RaceplayShawty, suggesting that Rocksteady had started this project as a Superman game but transformed it into a Suicide Squad title at some point.
Naturally, the Superman game would have been based solely on the DC Comics superhero; in contrast, in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, players will control King Shark, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and Harley Quinn, on a mission to take down corrupted versions of Flash, Superman, Green Lantern, and Batman in Metropolis.

Obviously, this information lacks foundation, especially because the source sharing it has no experience as a leaker, but the tweet went viral and reached almost 5 million views. Additionally, some users in the comments claimed they had heard something similar from "industry colleagues."
It was then that journalist Jason Schreier (one of the most reliable sources in the video game industry) appeared not only to refute this information but also to state that Rocksteady has never worked on a Superman game throughout its history.
"Nothing true to this," commented Schreier.
Fortunately, it is now possible to see in the post the context that Twitter adds to prevent readers from falling for the hoax and contributing to the spread of this false information.
