If you love superheroes, then you have to be excited about Suicide Squad, a new movie from the DC Comics universe that tells an unusual superhero tale. Rather than having the good guys save the day, in Suicide Squad we get to see a team of sick, perverted villains who are forced to work together by the government. Among them, there may or may not be the Joker, who’s likely the best villain Batman has ever had to deal with, and many other exciting characters.
We have no idea what happens in the movie, even though there have been numerous trailers to enjoy. However, a major spoiler seems to have been unearthed by the most unexpected thing, a Hot Toys new product for the movie that was shown off at Comic-Con. Stop reading now, if you want to avoid any spoilers.
First seen on display at the San Diego Comic-Con event by Birth Movies Death, the toy in the images below shows what seems to be a peculiar Batman character. Only the person behind the mask is not Bruce Wayne. Instead, it’s the Joker who somehow managed to acquire and customize a Batman suit.
The toy is even labeled as “The Joker (Batman Imposter Version)” and it’s the first time we’ve seen a character who hasn’t been shown in the trailer. The Hot Toys product isn’t available for sale just yet, and every toy the company has ever made has appeared in a movie. As io9 points out, they just stick to what we see in movies.
With that in mind, we can’t help but wonder what Joker did to get his hands on the Batman costume. It’s not like Bruce Wayne gives out old suits to the poor alongside whatever other clothes he may be handing out.
Suicide Squad, due August 5th, will surely explain it all.
