The release of yet another DC film has again caused a great divide among moviegoers everywhere. We saw the same happen back in March when the highly anticipated Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice made its way to theaters. It seems DC has been having a pretty rough year so far with the criticism both its movies have been getting. This, however, has not stopped them from trying to connect their cinematic universe even more with each movie. Suicide Squad is responsible for many more layers and puzzle pieces that fit into the larger picture, more specifically, Batman and his past.
The movie brings together of some of DC’s villains together to form Task Force X and with that we get our first-ever introduction to Harley Quinn on the big screen. It’s not every day that you get to see both Harley Quinn and The Joker live action on the big screen together. The duo’s introduction to the DCEU has also given us more insight to an issue raised in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. The death of Robin was something that has been plaguing Batman for years now in the DCEU and many DC fans will know The Joker is responsible for his death in the comics. It turns out that in the DCEU The Joker did, in fact, kill Robin, but he had some help with this by another member of the squad.
It turns out that The Joker’s accomplice in the death of Robin is none other than Harley Quinn herself. In the Suicide Squad film when we are first introduced to each member of the squad, we learn some key information on each. We learns that Boomerang is obsessed with a pink unicorn, Deadshot is a skilled marksman, and Harley Quinn was complicit in the death of Robin. Yes, that’s right, apparently Boomerang loves unicorns. In all seriousness however, it turns out Quinn did have a part in the death of Robin. This is actually some pretty interesting news as it makes the scenes that both Harley and Batman shared on the screen that much more tense if Batman, in fact, knows she is also responsible.
The death of Robin seems to be something that we surely will not hear the end of just yet and will continue to haunt Batman. It will be interesting to see if this plays out in some way during Justice League or if we will have to wait for the solo Batman film. We also haven’t gotten a Batman and Joker confrontation just yet, so when the time comes it will definitely be a very tense one. The bigger question is with Harley and The Joker reunited at the end of Suicide Squad to wreck havoc on Gotham, how will Batman handle them this time? It looks like this question could be answered in the upcoming Justice League movie, but an overall confrontation shouldn’t be expected ’til the solo Batman film. In the meantime, we can anticipate next year’s Wonder Woman and Justice League and hopefully the latter reunites us with Mr. J and Harley Quinn.
