Additional information has been revealed about Batman‘s appearance in Suicide Squad. The Caped Crusader’s role in the film will be little more than a cameo, with him interacting with only a few characters.
Batman’s involvement in Suicide Squad has been established for some time now, with a trailer for the movie showing him pursuing Harley Quinn and The Joker. This prompted some viewers to assume that he would at least serve as a minor antagonist in the movie, but according to a new report from Batman News, this is not the case. Indeed, Batman is not even supposed to meet the whole team, with the only other villain he encounters being identified as Deadshot. The two will share two scenes together, with one being a flashback and the other simply described as being “emotional.”
In addition, the site reveals the final outcome of the chase scene in the trailer:
The site goes on to add that, “Next is the car scene that we saw in the trailers with Batman, The Joker, and Harley Quinn. Unfortunately there isn’t much interaction between Batman and the Joker here. It’s mostly between Batman and Harley. A report came out last summer that said the Joker’s car plunges into the water, and as we saw in the latest trailer, it does and Batman gets Harley out safely.” So, it all sounds pretty great, but definitely just a cameo instead of a full on appearance and leading role.
