Why is Batman in the Suicide Squad movie?

Suicide Squad is a huge project for Warner Bros and DC Comics, it assembles a whole array of DC characters including Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney,  Divergent & Water Diviner), Deadshot (Will smith, The Pursuit of Happyness & Seven Pounds), Rick Flagg (Joel Kinnaman, RoboCop & Easy Money) , Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie, The Wolf of Wallstreet), Katana (Karen Fukuhara), Enchantress (Cara Delevingne, Anna Karenina & upcoming Pan),  Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye- Agbaje), El Diablo (Jay Hernandez), Slipknot (Adam Beach), Amanda Waller (Viola Davis, Prisoners  & The Help) and Joker (Jared Leto, Mr. Nobody & Dallas Buyers Club).

The movie is based on DC Comics conceived by John Ostrander, it is about a group of DC super-villains who are hired by Amanda Waller for a highly classified and dangerous government mission which carries a huge amount of risk. First, everyone thought the big villain is definitely the Joker, then fans thought as there is magic involved in the DC universe, it could be Enchantress. But finally, it’s been revealed that the main villain is “The Adversary”. People are confusing him with the person who got his powers from Lord Satanus and became a monster. The producer Andy Horwitz said, “There are multiple adversaries that the Squad has to contend with over the course of the movie of which Joker and Enchantress are one of them.”

But what is not clear is – why the Batman is in the movie? Well, now we have a clear answer. David Ayer told the Collider that it was his idea to include Dark Knight in the movie, he further said that there are many flashbacks and converging storylines, most of the members of Taskforce X were taken down because of the Batman heroism, we found it logical to acknowledge that in the movie. Joker is his prime adversary, Harley Quinn is connected and Deadshot has a long history with the Batman. The difference between this version of Batman and all the other ones is we will not see the story of Batman from his own perspective, but from the point of view of criminals.
