Suicide Squad is about a group of villains getting a second chance (if you can even call it that) to do some good. They get sent on suicide missions by the government, and in return get time shaved off their sentence, along with the privilege of stretching their muscles and letting off some built up steam. We’ve yet to see exactly what they’re mission will be. What we do know is outside of the SKWAD, there will be two major characters in Joker and Batman, who could have a role what happens.
Presumably, Suicide Squad will tease each villain’s past run ins with the Batman, and how he got them all locked up. We’ve seen the Bat in each trailer released so far, with only one character’s confirmed interaction, Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie). Now there’s a new rumor that goes into detail on how exactly the Batman ties into this film, and who exactly he interacts with. These rumors could be considered spoilers, however they must also be taken with a grain of salt.
According to a rumor, Batman will appear in three scenes, with only three characters. The first interaction will be with Deadshot (Will Smith), in a scene that’s being described as “emotional”. Second, there’s a car chase sequence that involves Joker (Jared Leto) and Harley Quinn. No confirmation on exactly when this takes place, but it’ll be the only interaction Batman has with Joker, until the solo movie. Lastly, there will be one more flashback scene between Deadshot and Batman.
For time sensitivity and story focus, it makes sense to feature Batman with only three villains, who I’m predicting will have major parts in the DCEU moving forward. Joker, Harley Quinn, and Deadshot are also the three villains I’m most looking forward to seeing.
Its almost a guarantee that Batman has a past with Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), El Diablo (Jay Hernandez), Slipknot (Adam Beach), Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney) and Katana (Karen Fukuhara), which could further be explored in the solo movie or Suicide Squad 2.
We’ll find out soon whether this rumor has any truth to it or not, come this August.
