Production on Suicide Squad is now underway in Toronto, Ontario. The DC Comics adaptation will feature as the big screen debuts of characters such as Deadshot and Harley Quinn, while new iterations of Amanda Waller and The Joker are also featured. Suicide Squad is expected to be filled with many DC Universe villains, opening up that side of Warner Bros.’ growing cinematic world, while Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will debut many of its heroes.
Speaking of that movie, rumor has it that at least one character from Batman v Superman will return for this film. That would not be surprising, as both DC movies are scheduled to release next year. And now, we have much more substantiation to those rumors, as a Dawn of Justice star has been spotted in Toronto, presumably on the set of Suicide Squad. Who is it?
[Warning: Possible Suicide Squad SPOILER Ahead.]
So, it looks like none other than Bruce Wayne/Batman
, who will be played by Ben Affleck in Batman v Superman
, will make an appearance in Suicide Squad
. Affleck has been spotted in Toronto, with some photos apparently capturing him on the film’s set. Head over to eTalk
to check out the set photos. Even if the photos were not showing Affleck on the Suicide Squad
set, the fact that he is in Toronto right when it is filming makes the idea of a Batman appearance far more likely.
This comes off of rumors saying that Batman would make a cameo in Suicide Squad. Prior reports said that the Dark Knight would be shown via security footage, with an actual appearance (likely an interaction with Joker) depending on Affleck’s schedule. And it looks like his schedule is permitting him to move forward with that.
While Affleck’s Suicide Squad role has yet to be confirmed officially, don’t be surprised if Batfleck makes his second appearance in the supervillain ensemble. Stay tuned for more as we have it.
Suicide Squad is scheduled to hit theaters August 5th, 2016. The third installment in the DC Cinematic Universe stars Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevingne, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Karen Fukuhara, Jim Parrack, Adam Beach, Ike Barinholtz, Common, Scott Eastwood, Viola Davis and Jared Leto. David Ayer writes and directs.
