The full list of all the anti-heroes and superheroes in “Suicide Squad” is yet to be announced. There have been rumors that have been circulating online. Responding to a fan question, James Gunn has revealed whether or not Batman will be a part of his upcoming film.

When a fan asked Gunn on Instagram for a Batman cameo scene in his upcoming film, the director responded by saying that the Caped Crusader will not be a part of “Suicide Squad.” He pointed out that the Dark knight has his own solo film that is coming out in 2021, so the fans will get to see a great deal of the character in that movie. A screenshot of the conversation has surfaced online.

In the 2016 “Suicide Squad” film, Ben Affleck’s Caped Crusader not only had multiple scenes, the character also played an important role in the story. Now that Affleck has retired from the role and Robert Pattinson will be playing the Dark Knight in 2021, a cameo appears to be unlikely as Gunn suggested.

However, the upcoming film may still have very brief cameo of Batman, CBR reported. The scene may serve as an introduction and a teaser to the new Caped Crusader. Gunn may be keeping this cameo a secret, if there are plans for such a scene, because it would ruin the surprise.

The upcoming film is a loose continuation of the 2016 movie. It is unclear as of this writing what Gunn’s take on the franchise will be like. Will a scene with Pattinson be confusing to the fans who are used to seeing Affleck in the role?

Meanwhile, another name that Gunn has shot down for “Suicide Squad” is Thor. That comment by the director led to some hilarious responses by the fans, with some suggesting that the director should get Chris Hemsworth to reprise his role in the film because both he and Harley Quinn actress Margot Robbie are from Australia.

"Suicide Squad 2" is set for an August 6, 2021 release.
