Batman May Appear in ‘Suicide Squad’ After All

When iconic Batman villains the Joker (Jared Leto) and Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) were announced as part of Warner Bros.’ “Suicide Squad” lineup, fans began to wonder whether Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight might also appear in David Ayer’s supervillain team-up film.

Now it appears we may have our answer, after multiple onlookers shot video of a car chase being filmed on the streets of Toronto featuring what appears to be the Batmobile pursuing the Joker’s sports car.

In one video, the Joker’s neon green hair is visible through the driver’s side window.

In another, posted Wednesday, Batman (sans cape) can be seen riding on top of the villain’s vehicle as it swerves through the streets, much to the delight of the gathered crowd.

Given the danger of the stunt, it’s unlikely to be Affleck beneath Batman’s cowl, but the scene does give some indication of what fans can expect when “Suicide Squad” bows in theaters on Aug. 5 next year.

Other stars appearing in “Suicide Squad” include Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Will Smith as Deadshot, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Adam Beach as Slipknot, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo and Karen Fukuhara as Katana. Viola Davis will also star as Amanda Waller.
