Batman shows cowl in new Suicide Squad promo

(Warner Bros. Pictures)

Blink and you might miss it: Batman makes another brief Suicide Squad ad cameo. A shot of Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight appeared in one of the new movie promos that aired during Game 3 of the NBA Finals Wednesday night.

It’s only for a moment, but Batman leaps off a building and on top of a flash red sports car — the kind Bruce Wayne would likely drive in his non-crime-fighting time.

On the nefarious side, Deadshot and The Joker each took deadly aim. Will Smith and Jared Leto’s respective villains were the two non-Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) stars in the recent pair of clips. Deadshot mostly lives up to his name by firing rounds, but sends a reminder to his group: “Don’t forget — we’re the bad guys.”

Meanwhile, in the other spot, Leto’s Joker alludes to torture and also boasts a machine gun with a Tony Montana flare, as seen in the “Bohemian Rhapsody” trailer. And then Harley is her usual crazy self, promising to be a scene-stealer this summer.

See the new bits above. Suicide Squad — directed by David Ayer and also starring Viola Davis and Joel Kinnaman — opens Aug. 5.
