Pretty much every recent comic book movie is riddled with tons of clever Easter eggs, secrets and references, and David Ayer’s Suicide Squad is no exception to the matter. From taking a jab at previous DC movies to an appearance of what might be another comic book villain, here are six Suicide Squad Easter Eggs you might have missed amidst the film’s glorious action pieces.
Please do take note that this list contains some heavy spoilers, so it comes highly recommended that you see Suicide Squad and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice before checking out this full list, especially the massive spoiler at the end. With that being said, let’s kick this list off.
“Where is she?”
The Joker steals pretty much every scene he’s in, and being so starstruck may make it difficult to spot some of the secrets that lurk within almost all of them. One of those little references is a small jab at Christopher Nolan’s excellent Dark Knight trilogy and Christian Bale’s Batman.
In the Dark Knight trilogy, one of the most recurring complaints from fans and general viewers was Batman’s heavy and nearly inaudible voice, which could practically give you a sore throat just by hearing him speak. Suicide Squad’s Joker took note, reciting 2009’s Dark Knight by grunting “Where is she?” when asking about Harley’s whereabouts, likely referring to when Batman was interrogating Heath Ledger’s version of the Joker who had kidnapped Bruce Wayne’s childhood friend, Rachel Dawes.
