We’ve known for some time that Ben Affleck’s Batman would be popping up in Suicide Squad and, while we assumed it was just a brief cameo, there may be more of the Dark Knight coming to a head with The Joker than we thought.
After the somewhat lukewarm response to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it was reported that Suicide Squad was undergoing reshoots to add more humour to the film. However, it is possible that Warner Bros have requested to the director, David Ayer, for more Batfleck, seeing that he was the most well-received element of Batman v Superman.
This is just a rumour, of course, so take it with pinch of salt but it may have some legs considering that Gonzalez is a self-proclaimed ‘scoop king’ of the superhero movie genre. Watch him talk about it in his episode of Heroic Insider below.
Meanwhile, Warner Bros have also revealed two more ‘untitled’ DC films, the first of which is set for 5 October 2018, while the second for 1 November 2019.
One of the two films – likely the 2018 release – is thought to be the solo-Batman film, which is confirmed to be in development and working off a script Affleck himself has written.
Meanwhile, the other release is currently thought to be a second Suicide Squad film.
