Details About BATMAN's Role In SUICIDE SQUAD; He's The Boogeyman Everyone Fears
Some interesting new details about how the Dark Knight fits into David Ayer's upcoming Suicide Squad, his relationship with the Joker, and how he may be perceived by the world when he shows up in Batman v. Superman have surfaced. Come check it out! *SPOILERS*
Latino-Review's El Mayimbe has struck again! After bringing us three big Suicide Squad-related scoops, concerning the villains, Deathstroke, and the Joker, this morning he's dropped some serious information about how Ben Affleck's Batman plays into the upcoming David Ayer-directed film!
According to Mayimbe's sources, prior to the events of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, the Dark Knight is considered a sort of urban legend, a sort of boogeyman that criminals fear and that the government absolutely despises. Additionally, up to that point, the Joker is actually the only person to have ever come face-to-face and/or met with the Caped Crusader for an extended period of time, possibly due to him murdering one of Batman's sidekicks, which makes the Clown Prince a vital asset for Viola Davis' Amanda Waller.
Due to his propensity to live in the shadows, Batman has managed to become a priority target for Amanda Waller and sometime during Suicide Squad, her team will be seen watching footage of the Bat in action. Mayimbe also teases a bit of dialogue that reveals that Waller sees him as the key to tracking down all "the supers." This would mean that Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and possibly others will presumably become known to the public after Batman v. Superman.
Whether or not Ben Affleck makes an appearance is still unknown, but everything else about the new Batman sounds pretty great. What do you guys think? Sound off with your thoughts below!
