While Suicide Squad covered many different avenues of the DC universe, the primary focus was on Batman’s world, including characters associated with the Dark Knight. Batman himself was only in a few brief scenes, but members of his rogues gallery, such as Harley Quinn, Killer Croc, and of course the Joker, received quite a bit of attention, which helped flesh out the DC Extended Universe in ways that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice couldn’t. As it turns out, these weren’t the only Batman villains teased in the film, as one observant Reddit user has noticed that the film contains an Easter Egg that references a certain notorious crime boss.
During the scene where Batman captures Floyd Lawton, a.k.a. Deadshot, there is a shot of the Gotham City skyline and if you look closely at one of the buildings, you can spot a glowing sign that says “Falcone.”
This would of course be a reference to Carmine Falcone, head of the Falcone crime family. Falcone hasn’t been seen in a Batman film since Tom Wilkinson played him in 2005’s Batman Begins but considering that was part of a different fictional universe, this Easter Egg represents the first mention of Falcone in the new DC Extended Universe.
Could this mean we’ll be seeing Falcone in a future Batman movie, possibly Ben Affleck’s upcoming solo film due out in 2018? It’s possible that Falcone could be involved with that film’s villain, Slade Wilson, a.k.a Deathstroke, and may even be the one that hires the mercenary to take Batman out. Of course, this is purely speculation at this point, but it’s still interesting to learn that Carmine Falcone does exist in this particular Batman universe.
