What is Batman’s role in SUICIDE SQUAD?

Suicide Squad has opened in US Box office, and early reviews are not looking good for the Warner Bros. 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. 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.


Well, there is also Batman in the movie, and now we have a clear answer why he is in it. 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, it was only 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. He is played by Ben Affleck who is shown briefly in flashback scenes of Joker and Harley Quinn. 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. #IamBatman
