Back in January, a report surfaced that revealed Ben Affleck's Batman from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will show up at the end of Warner Bros and DC Comics' Suicide Squad adaptation, which is getting ready to start shooting next month in Toronto. We haven't had any official confirmation about Batman's involvement, but there have also been reports that Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) has been keeping tabs on all of the superheroes, including Batman. Today, El Mayimbe has a new report which reveals more details about how Batman fits into the story. While this has yet to be confirmed, there will be some potential SPOILERS below, so read on at your own risk. Take a look at what El Mayimbe had to say below, which sets up some intriguing details about Batman's back story.
"Details about THE GOD DAMN #BATMAN in #SUICIDESQUAD! #SPOILER #WARNING According to sources, in the film Batman is some sort of big boogeyman that the government REALLY hates. Get this, prior to the events in #BatmanvSuperman, THE JOKER is the only one to really ever meet him or know him and that's why he's so important to Amanda Waller. They have footage of Batman in action which they watch. There is a bit of dialogue where they say Batman is the key to tracking down all "the supers." Very cool stuff. #DC #DCCU #DCCOMICS #THEJOKER #AMANDAWALLER #THEDARKKNIGHTRETURNS"
It has been rumored that Suicide Squad ends with a massive prison riot where Batman and The Joker square off, but in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the Dark Knight is said to be "semi-retired," who fights crime through the use of drones and surveillance. It is believed that Batman will have to reveal himself as a hero in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which would drastically change the DC Comics universe, and would likely set up the hero being put on Amanda Waller's radar in the first place.
Naturally, the two-part Justice League movie will be coming a year after both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, so we'll have to see how the events of these movies tie into that superhero ensemble. There have also been rumors about another Batman reboot as well, but Warner Bros. has yet to confirm anything about that project. What do you think about Batman's involvement in Suicide Squad? Let us know what you think below, and stay tuned for more updates.
