Players are eager to see the iconic DC character, the ever-popular Batman. In recent years, the Caped Crusader has been the subject of many video games, and his imagery is throughout this new Suicide Squad outing.

This game takes place in the same universe established during the Batman: Arkham series. It is said to occur at some point after the events of Batman: Arkham Knight.

At the end of Arkham Knight, Batman is exposed as Bruce Wayne to the public by Scarecrow. The "Knightfall Protocol" is then initiated. As Bruce and Alfred enter Wayne Manor, surrounded by reports, the mansion explodes.

This seemingly kills them both, but players who stick around see two muggers attacking a family in an alley only to be confronted by a dark figure that resembles none other than Batman.

Batman is also known for having several protocols to deal with his Justice League counterparts if they were ever to turn evil. That makes his appearance in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League an almost certainty.

Amanda Waller puts together the Suicide Squad to take out the brainwashed Justice League members, but Batman is not one of them. This has fans believing he will come out of hiding to help the Squad stop his allies.

In the trailer for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, there is a car with a bat signal strapped to its hood. Batman's statue is also present alongside the other Justice League members in the Hall of Justice.

All signs point to Batman arriving later in the game and in the form he took after the Knightfall Protocol. It will be a strange and missed opportunity if he doesn't, considering Rocksteady were adamant this is a part of the Arkham universe.
