‘Suicide Squad’ To Feature More Batman Than We Thought

Even with the mixed reviews for Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, pretty much everyone is saying the same thing: Ben Affleck killed it as Bruce Wayne and Batman. Affleck’s take on the Caped Crusader was so well received that fans are aching to see him don the cape and cowl again as soon as possible. If these rumors are true, it sounds like Warner Bros. and DC Films will be granting our wish this summer. We already know that Batman will have some sort of presence in the film. We’ve seen the Batmobile on set, and caught a quick glimpse of the Dark Knight chasing down The Joker’s car in the film’s Comic-Con trailer. According to Umberto Gonzalez, there’s even more Batman in Suicide Squad than we initially thought. Check out his comments below.

“The film tested recently, they had test screenings, and according to sources, check this out, there is a lot more Batman in the movie than they are letting on.”

There’s actually another rumor going around that the current reshoots for the film will look to add even more Batman. Since both rumors conflict with each other, I’m inclined to believe this report of the movie already containing more than just a cameo of the Dark Knight. Due to the nature of the film, and the kind of characters that will appear, myself and plenty of other fans would be a little disappointed if Batman didn’t show up more in the film. Heck, half of the villains in the Suicide Squad (Aside from Joker) are Batman foes! Joker, Harley, Killer Croc, and Deadshot are all set to be heavily featured in this summer’s supervillain blockbuster, so you can bet you bottom dollar that Bat is going to be watching this team very closely. I for one cannot wait to see Batman interact with villains from his rouges gallery that we’ve never seen before in live action.


Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is NOW PLAYING.

Suicide Squad: It feels good to be bad…Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen to their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
