Suicide Squad Spoilers: Batman, The Joker & Harley Quinn Appear in Chase …

Batman crashes the ‘Suicide Squad’ set in new leaked images.

Ben Affleck — 0r perhaps a stunt double — was back in the Batman costume this week to shoot a dramatic car chase for the film “Suicide Squad” on the streets of Toronto.Images and photos have previously been released of Jared Leto’s Joker, Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, leaked plane crashes and even the brand new Batmobile racing throughout Gotham’s streets but the new images have excited fans of the franchise.When Warner Bros announced a slate of 10 new superhero movies based on its rights to the DC Comics back catalogue last October, it’s fair to say that Suicide Squad wasn’t among the obvious highlights.

At the rate they’re going, filmmakers will have no spoilers left for movie fans once Suicide Squad – the supervillain movie featuring Joker (Jared Leto), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Deadshot (Will Smith) and more – hits screens next summer. Passersby and paparazzi snapped pictures of the Caped Crusader sitting on top of a car driven eratically by the superhero’s arch nemesis The Joker, played by Jared Leto. (Actress Margot Robbie, who plays Harley Quinn, can be glimpsed smiling gleefully in the passenger seat.) “Suicide Squad,” written and directed by David Ayer, stars 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.

Most expected the Dirty Dozen-style antiheroes outing to be Warner’s answer to Guardians of the Galaxy, a little-known proposition (outside superfan circles) which would allow the studio to rev its engine in a remote corner of the DC cinematic universe without too much fallout if fans didn’t bite. After taking over Toronto’s Yonge Street for three nights this week for a chase scene involving the Clown Prince of Crime, director David Ayer (Fury, End of Watch) brought out the Batman early Thursday morning. Also seen was Australian actress Margot Robbie – dressed in character as fictional supervillain Harley Quinn and seated in the rear of cohort The Joker’s sleek red Infiniti G35. With cameras surrounding the action packed scene Batman actor Ben Affleck’s stunt double leapt atop the moving vehicle and endeavoured to tear a hole in the roof.

Since filming began last month, Suicide Squad has shut down parts of Toronto’s financial district – for a helicopter crash and an action scene outside of the Trump Hotel – and parts of Bloor Street. Suicide Squad is set for release next August, just five months after Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, which marks Ben’s first appearance as Batman, hits cinemas. The film follows a group of supervillains imprisoned in an asylum who are offered clemency by a secret government agency in return for carrying out covert black ops. Back in January, Forbes reported that Batman’s storyline in Suicide Squad would be linked to The Joker, paving the way for Jared Leto’s incarnation of the iconic villain to appear in the planned standalone Batman movie. Batman has occasionally found himself getting caught up in the Suicide Squad’s affairs, so there’s nothing canonically wrong with Ayer introducing Bruce Wayne into proceedings.

In April fans reacted excitedly when photos emerged of Affleck dressed as Bruce Wayne on the set of the film which he was not originally thought to be part of. Cara Delevingne, Will Smith, Scott Eastwood, Adam Beach, Jai Courtney, Karen Fukuhara, Joel Kinnaman, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Jay Hernandez also star. An opening scene in which Gotham’s dark knight captures the Joker and Harley Quinn, but is then warned off by Suicide Squad handler Amanda Waller would serve nicely.

The newcomer’s only shared universe effort so far is middling Superman reboot Man of Steel, while Marvel has already delivered half a dozen bona fide critical smashes.
