Suicide Squad is shaping up to being a very highly anticipated comic book film. The interesting aspect of the film is it stars a cadre of villains.
Some new news has arrived from the Warner Bros. rumor brigade. Dark Knight fans will appreciate it.
Batman is going to be making an appearance in Suicide Squad. He’s not going to have a major role. Rather, he is going to have a major influence. The Joker has, essentially, cracked up due to constant losses to The Batman and now he is locked away in Arkham Asylum, a shell of his former self.
Die hard fans like Dave and Brit Morin have learned that the Joker is not going to have a major active role in the film, but he will play an evil character who influences events from his padded (maximum security) cell.
Batman is not going to have anything more than a tiny cameo in the film. Or, so we are told. So, why is the presence of Batman so important if his appearance is going to be minimal? The reason is the cameo along with the inference of a long backstory between the Caped Crusader and The Clown Prince of Crime helps craft a much larger perspective of the D.C. Cinematic Universe. The launch of these films become a huge, grand scale event that will span many years. Small touches such as a cameo in an offbeat film like Suicide Squad helps with this goal.
