According to El Mayimbe, from Latino review, Batman is a “boogeyman” kind of character that the government is trying to track down. Here’s what Mayimbe revealed over Instagram;
“Details about THE GOD DAMN #BATMAN in #SUICIDESQUAD! #SPOILER #WARNING According to sources, in the film Batman is some sort of big boogeyman that the government REALLY hates. Get this, prior to the events in #BatmanvSuperman, THE JOKER is the only one to really ever meet him or know him and that’s why he’s so important to Amanda Waller. They have footage of Batman in action which they watch. There is a bit of dialogue where they say Batman is the key to tracking down all “the supers.”
To say that the Joker is really the only one to know Batman makes me wonder if they’re going to go for the killing joke as this Jokers origin. Personally I more of a fan of the ambiguous origin, whereby he rattles off a bunch of origin stories that are all just bullshit, like in The Dark Knight. But that’s just me.
Also if this dialogue is accurate, to say that Batman is the key to tracking down the rest of the superheroes kinda helps solidifies the notion that it will be Batman who assembles the Justice League. Something tells me that we’ll only see Aquaman and Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman, but we’ll get references to a bunch more “Supers” in Suicide Squad via computer screens and whatever else.
Are Warner Bros. allowed to use the term “Supers”? Haven’t Disney kind of got the rights to that, due to The Incredibles, in the same way Fox has the rights to mutants? I guess supers is a little more of a vague term.
