The films director David Ayer also spoke about Ben Affleck’s Batman and how he is portrayed by the actor in this iteration:

“We made him fight. He’s awesome (as Batman). … You really sense that but for the grace of God he himself would be doing some really foul stuff out in the world.”

Affleck spoke about his appearance in “Suicide Squad”:

“It felt like I have such a cool cousin. This thing that is so awesome is somehow related to me, and that was really exciting because it started to feel like a constellation of things, and I’ve never had that feeling.”

we will get to see just how prominent a role Affleck’s Batman has when “Suicide Squad” opens on August 5th.
