One of the many Easter Eggs in Suicide Squad is tied into a big mystery set up in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

It could be just one stop on a trail of tragedy and vengeance in the DC Comics Movie Universe.

In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Bruce Wayne keeps a statue of Robin in the Batcave.

The symbol of his sidekick is defaced with spray paint:

“Ha Ha joke’s on your Batman!”

The implication is a “Robin” was killed in this past of this movie universe.

In the comic storyline Death of the Family, the second Robin/Jason Todd was murdered by the Joker.

Is the guilty party revealed in Suicide Squad? Continue reading SUICIDE SQUAD Easter Egg, HARLEY QUINN’S Crime?

Bring on the bad guys!

Get ready to get down, dirty and dangerous as Warner Brothers unleashes the worst heroes ever in Suicide Squad this Friday.

A new Joker and the motion picture debut of other classic Batman and Flash villains will blitz across the big screens with director David Ayer running the asylum and revving up the DC Comics film franchise.

But who’s who? Where are the good guys? What this could mean for the future of DC movies?

If you’re a veteran comics fan or new to the dark side of DC, here’s our Suicide Squad for Virgins:

The version of the team that inspired the movie was conceived by a trio of legends: writer John Ostrander with writer Len Wein and artist John Byrne.

The team’s first mission was against Brimstone, an elemental creature unleashed by Darkseid who was plotting to conquer Earth. The Justice League film villain is said to be Steppenwolf, Darkseid’s ruthless general. Given the comic book canon connections, could the Squad and League team up in a future movie in the war against Darkseid? (Exciting but let’s get back to the new movie!)

Who’s who? Continue reading SUICIDE SQUAD For Virgins
