According to the new report, Batman (in classic Batman fashion) breaks into Waller’s office – or, rather, is already there and hiding in the shadows when she walks in. He apparently “has a bone to pick” with her and is “totally against the concept behind the Suicide Squad.” That makes complete sense, given that Batman spends most of his time hunting and taking down the various Squad members and likely isn’t too keen on the idea of them getting shortened sentences for doing mercenary work.
Batman will reportedly warn Waller that, should the Squad or Joker kill any innocents while on their missions, he’ll hold her personally responsible. It’s “a warning so stern that he has to visit Waller personally to deliver the message.”
If true, this is a great way to have Ben Affleck cameo in the film. Ol’ Batsy and Waller have had several verbal and moral altercations like this in the comics and various animated DC projects, so including this scene would only cement the fact that this particular version of the Caped Crusader is heavily influenced by the source material. It’s also a great way to subtly show the interconnectivity of the DC Cinematic Universe, which is all the more important as the upcoming slate of films heads our way.
