We get some backstory on Batman, the dead Robin Jason Todd, and Joker in the DCEU.
"This is sort of my personal thing and maybe less about a larger connection," Ayer said. "But Joker killed Robin and Batman basically smashes his teeth out and locks him up in Arkham Asylum. Itâ€™s in the asylum where Joker would have done the â€˜damagedâ€™ tattoo as a message to Batman saying, 'Youâ€™ve damaged me. I was so beautiful before and now youâ€™ve destroyed my face.' Thatâ€™s where the grill comes from."
Suicide Squad also revealed that Harley Quinn had a hand in Robin's death.
Jason Todd is currently rumored to be returning as Red Hood in the solo Ben Affleck Batman movie, with a separate rumor stating it may take place within Arkham Asylum.
"Suicide Squad" is directed by David Ayer starring Will Smith as Deadshot, Jared Leto as the Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Adam Beach as Slipknot, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, and Scott Eastwood in an unknown role.
It feels good to be badâ€¦ Assemble a team of the worldâ€™s most dangerous, incarcerated Supervillains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the governmentâ€™s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they werenâ€™t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide itâ€™s every man for himself?
