Now after reading the plot and watching the teaser, the criminals are forced to become heroes here. Now this reminds me of Drifter, Suicide Squad, and The Boys.

The worst criminals are sentenced to heroism here, they are forced to fight on the frontlines against the beast and the demon lord. And if they die their only way is to bring them back to life and fight once again, a never-ending cycle.
