Another week arrives, and with it so does another round of "Suicide Squad" rumors from Latino Review's Umberto Gonzalez. After putting out reports about the Warner Bros. DC Comics adaptation's potential villain and the finer points of Jared Leto's Joker, Gonzalez today warns of Batman's possible role in the movie.

Following as it does on the heels of Zack Snyder's "Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice," the villain-centric film will apparently cast Ben Affleck's Dark Knight in a shadowy antagonistic role with the Joker as the only person with an inside scoop on the vigilante. See Gonzalez's take below, courtesy of his Instagram account.

Directed by David Ayer and starring Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Jared Leto, "Suicide Squad" opens on August 5, 2016.
