Could the Suicide Squad movie be going down the route taken by timeless Batman graphic novel The Killing Joke and giving us the ‘true’ origins of the Joker?
Remember, the same origins lent a lot to Joker’s birth in the 1989 Batman movie but was also heavily changed for that version.
Well, the latest set pics from the movie – this time leaked by crew members including Ingrid Kleinig, who is Margot Robbie’s stunt double – who quickly deleted them but then – hey, it’s the internet – they were screen-grabbed and re-posted on Instagram. And yes, we have copies of them below.
The images show ACE Chemicals which comic fans – including myself – should be freaking out over because this is where the Joker was born. We aren’t going to go into too much detail because a lot of it is spoiler-heavy if true, but the fans will know what this means.
In Batman ’89 it was Axis Chemicals but it looks like Suicide Squad is going to do it right…
