The newest Suicide Squad trailer featured an abundance of new footage as well as some new tunes for the soundtrack. But the thing that really caught the attention of the viewers were the scenes featuring the Batmant in action. In an exchange with Fandango, director David Ayer addressed the Dark Knight’s involvement, as well as when the film takes place.
“Just the right amount,” says director David Ayer when we asked how much Batman we’ll get to see in the film. As for when Suicide Squad takes place — before or after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice — and whether it will acknowledge the events of BvS, Ayer was reluctant to go into details, simply saying “the answer to all of the above is yes.”
In the new trailer, we see Batman interacting Joker and Harley through the roof of a car, but it seems that he Will come to blows with Will Smith, who plays the role of Deadshot.
“The Bat does cross my path… and, ya know, it’s not completely pleasant,” says Smith. Same goes for Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, who plays Killer Croc. The actor has already teased some sort of interaction between the two.
As for the timeline, in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, the history between Batman and the Joker has already been established, and from earlier trailers it appears we see Batman saving Harley, perhaps from the Joker earlier in his career. The film is very likely to contain time jumps and some possible flashbacks, so the answer Ayer gives seems fairly accurate.
Suicide Squad releases on August 5th.
