Ben Affleck’s Batman continues to be shaped into the cornerstone of the building DC Extended Universe onscreen it seems. David Ayer’s upcoming “Suicide Squad” film not only includes the Batman in character, but it seems all the members of the team will have had past encounters with the Gotham City protector before events of the movie kick off.
Speaking with Fandango about his role as Killer Croc, actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje discussed that relationship:
“All of these so-called villains are villains that Batman has had some history with and caught and brought into Arkham Prison. So whether it comes before or after I’m not sure, but I do know we’ve all been captured by him and imprisoned in Arkham, so we’ve all got a gripe to bear against the ol’ Bat.”
In the same interview, Akinnuoye-Agbaje also revealed he underwent five hours of make-up and prosthetics every day he was on set – adding that there will be a few “croc rolls” on display in the film.
Last week at CinemaCon, Warner Bros. Pictures confirmed that the Batman standalone movie was moving forward with Ben Affleck directing and starring with DC head honcho Geoff Johns co-writing and the “Under the Hood” storyline rumored as the potential plot.
