It looks like the DC Comics Cinematic Universe just got a little bit more connected. New videos leaked from the set of the upcoming movie “Suicide Squad” show the new Batmobile, the very same that will debut in “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice.”
According to CinemaBlend, Ben Affleck was reportedly flown to the Toronto set of the movie, which led many to believe that “Suicide Squad” may also feature a cameo from the caped crusader himself in addition to the cavalcade of villains. While those rumors weren’t proven, a new video from the set (below) very clearly shows the batmobile in a car chase with The Joker (Jared Leto) and Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie).

Although it’s the first time we’ve seen the batmobile on the set of “Suicide Squad,” it’s hardly the first time we’ve seen The Joker’s purple super car on the Toronto set. Previously leaked images showed Leto fully clad as the clown prince of crime slapping Robbie’s character, who appeared in plain clothes. Her attire led many to believe that the scene was a flashback showing the origin story of Harley Quinn.
With Batman (Affleck) suiting up to battle Superman (Henry Cavill) in “Dawn of Justice,” the odds are strong that if he does make a cameo in "Suicide Squad," he won’t play a major role in the already full cast. As a result, the batmobile’s appearance in the movie lends credence to the idea that we’ll see a flashback in the upcoming DC Comics and Warner Bros. team up.
Previously, the only glimpse of Ben Affleck’s new batmobile was seen briefly in the trailer for “Dawn of Justice,” when it sped through a bevy of explosions. “Suicide Squad” will feature a team of DC Comics super villains, many of whom are particularly Batman villains such as Quinn and The Joker, as they take on dangerous missions from the government in exchange for lighter sentences for their crimes.
The film features Will Smith (Deadshot), Jai Courtney (Captain Boomerang), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flagg), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc), Cara Delevigne (Enchantress), Viola Davis (Amanda Waller), Jared Leto (The Joker), Adam Beach (Slipknot), Jay Hernandez (El Diablo) and Karen Fukuhara (Katana) as the title team of bad guys fighting for a good(ish) cause.
