Here's what League of Legends would look like if it was the 'Suicide Squad'
The official Suicide Squad trailer was praised for its great theatrics and use of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” when it was released on Jan. 19. Now a YouTube content creator has reimagined it with champions from the League of Legends universe.
Mixing Riot Games cinematics from the past five years with audio from the original Suicide Squad trailer, YouTuber KJFB20DOR has masterfully edited what he calls “League of Legends - Suicide Squad Style.”
Whether you want to see Jinx as Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, Rengar as Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje’s Killer Croc, or Graves as Will Smith’s Deadshot, this video has you covered. And to top it all off, at the end of the trailer—much like the original—you see Jared Leto’s Joker reveal, with the character played by Fiddlesticks (of course).
The League video was released yesterday, and has already accumulated 85,000 views. It currently holds fifth position on the League of Legends subreddit.
It’s not often that this kind of fan-created content receives such high accolades (aside from the likes of another YouTuber ThePeacePigeon). But thanks to a killer job well done by KJFB20DOR, the video will be remembered for a very long time.
