At this point, we’re going to see the entirety of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad through footage filmed by civilians with iPhones before we even get to the first trailer. The latest batch of videos confirm a rumor that’s been circulating for months – yes, Ben Affleck’s Batman will play in a role in the film and from the looks of things, it will probably be far more than a “blink and you’ll miss him” cameo.
Set photos of Ben Affleck in costume already confirmed the reports that Batman/Bruce Wayne would be making an appearance in Suicide Squad, but if you needed any further confirmation, we’ve got that for you. Over the weekend, Suicide Squad was shooting a massive chase scene between Batman and Joker (in their respective vehicles) on the streets of Toronto, and we’ve got the video to prove it.
Over three seasons Arrow has been no stranger to the Suicide Squad (though perhaps less now with a movie in the works), but few could forget the excitement of the CW drama first teasing Harley Quinn with a brief cameo. That said, it seems Arrow may have had larger plans for Dr. Harleen Quinzel, ones that DC smashed with a giant sledgehammer.

Tom Hardy was all set to star in Suicide Squad, the first DC movie to hit theaters after Batman vs. Superman. He was going to be the star of the movie, in a movie filled with stars like Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Jared Leto. But, just a few months before filming, he abruptly dropped out of the production and was later replaced by Joel Kinnaman. Hardy, however, says he has plans to return to the DC universe and he’s already working with Warner Bros. on a new secret project.
When we got our first look at Jared Leto’s Joker a few weeks ago, the internet was torn asunder by rabid conversation. The bulk of the dialogue was about those tattoos and whether or not Batman’s arch-nemesis would ever get inked in the first place. Truth be told, it is hard to imagine a psychotic clown villain chilling in a Gotham City tattoo parlor for a few hours while he gets “Disturbed” inked on his skin. However, a newly leaked image reveals a potential origin for those tattoos and gives us another look at Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn.
We got our first look at the ensemble cast of Suicide Squad yesterday and the response was, uh, divisive to say the least. For everyone who appreciated director David Ayer’s modern, grungier take on the DC comic book universe’s B-list supervillains, there was someone else crying out for a return to the old days. Well, get ready to formulate another set of opinions on Suicide Squad because a bunch of set pictures showing off Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn have arrived online.
... honestly, I have no idea who that last guy is. It’s not a particularly high-res image, so I can’t get a read on the actor or the character. When I figure that out, I’ll update the post.
