Ben Affleck’s Batman looks set to make an appearance in the forthcoming Suicide Squad movie.
Fans who watched a Suicide Squad car chase scene being shot on the streets of Toronto yesterday (May 27) have uploaded several videos to YouTube showing what appears to be the Batmobile trailing a sports car being driven by The Joker. In one video, a Batman-like figure is seen clinging to the roof of the villain’s vehicle.
Fans had already been speculating that Affleck’s Batman could feature in Suicide Squad, in which Jared Leto will star as The Joker. Alongside Leto as The Joker, Will Smith has been cast as Deadshot, Jai Courtney will play Boomerang, Margot Robbie will portray Harley Quinn and Cara DeLevigne is the film’s Enchantress. Joel Kinnaman bagged the role of Rick Flag after a scheduling clash forced Tom Hardy to pull out of the film.
Meanwhile, How To Get Away With Murder Star star Viola Davis will appear in a supporting role as Amanda Waller, a government agent who is often put in charge of the ‘suicide squad’, a team of super-villains working for the government in return for their freedom. Director David Ayer started shooting the super-villain movie in Toronto in April and Warner Bros. has set Suicide Squad for release on August 5, 2016. Ayer has recently shared the first picture of the film’s cast in costume.
Meanwhile, Affleck will make his debut as the caped crusader in Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, director Zack Snyder’s eagerly-anticipated sequel to 2013’s Man Of Steel, which is set for release on March 25, 2016.
