Did You Catch This Newly Found Batman Easter Egg In ‘Suicide Squad’?

batman

Gotham City has been seen in 2 out of the 3 DC extended universe movies that have been released to date. It makes sense, considering Batman has always been considered the comic companie’s live action superstar. After the mixed-at-best reception to their first attempt, Man of Steel, it seems like “adding more Batman” is a no-brainer.

This doesn’t just include the Dark Knight himself, but everything else that comes along with him. His mythos is so extensive there is a (surprisingly) successful show on Fox right now – Gotham – that stars everyone in his history except Batman. It should come as no surprise that along with the actual man himself, Batman’s settings and ancillary character (see: villains) would also be given numerous shout-outs.

Aside from explicitly starring some of Batman’s most well known rogues, Suicide Squad also contained a number of other more subtle easter eggs referring to the Batman mythos. A new easter egg has just been spotted, which hints at legendary Gotham crime boss, Carmine Falcone. You may know Falcone from Gotham, or just from the long history he’s had with the Bat.

In the Suicide Squad extended cut, there is a skyline view of Gotham, which contains a couple of glowing neon signs – one of which says ‘Falcone’ in a bright pink/purple cursive font. You can see it just below and off to the right of the center of the image.

Check out the image below:

This was most likely put in the shot for fun, as Falcone is well known to have ties to the most elite in Gotham. It would make sense he has his own building(s?) with his name glowing on the top. It in unknown if he will play any role in the upcoming Batman solo films, but as of right now we at least know he exists out there somewhere in Batfleck’s world, and has most likely already squared up against him at one point or another.

Jack of some trades, master of some others. That saying never really made a lot of sense to me.

    Can you make the image smaller?

    • Probably.

        What is it with you bloggers doing stuff like this??? Would it kill you to have just a smidgeon of journalistic integrity, and leave your opinions out of a report article?

        There’s nothing “surprising” about Gotham’s success. It’s a good show. People like it. It’s fine if you don’t, but your little shot at the show sends a negative message.

        I really wish you guys would get it together on this stuff. It’s like reading the Fox News of comic book sites.

        • You never fail to entertain, Samurai. Keepin’ the comment section classy, as always.

          • SAMURAI36

            I guess that’s more than can be said for the article section, which is far from classy, as always.

            You should know…of all people, right?

          • You guys should really get rid of the toxic commenters. They legitimately scare away some movie and comic fans who’d otherwise be interested in this site.

    • SAMURAI36

      The fact that he responded with sarcasm says alot, doesn’t it?

        The sad thing is, this spam is of more relevance than this article is.

  • Axxell

    Why would a crime boss have his name on a building?

    • HollywoodJackandtheRageCage

      It’s just an easter egg

    • Joey Wabi-Sabi

      Not unusual at all. Smart crime bosses always have “legitimate” business fronts to launder their dirty money. The American mafia used to put their names on businesses all the time. Plus, Falcone is not some underground thug who hides in the shadows. He’s a rich businessman, and a public figure who is very well known in Gotham. I would be very surprised if he did not have at least one building with his name on it.

      • SAMURAI36

        Precisely. This isn’t really that big of an Easter Egg. It’s not like it’s a secret that there is crime in Gotham, and virtually every incarnation of the city has a mafia element.

        • Somebody is triggered.

          • SAMURAI36

            Says the guy that’s writing crappy articles, and doubling down on the silliness in the comments section. I’m sure there’s more terrible articles you can be writing, yes?

          • Peter James

            I just want to say that you’re doing an awesome bang-up job carrying on the mantle and torch for CrownPrinceofTrolls (whatever happened to him?)

            Every self-respecting comment section worth its salt needs a resident troll…….of sorts.

          • …Not.

      • Axxell

        Smart crime bosses always have “legitimate” business fronts to launder their dirty money. The American mafia used to put their names on businesses all the time.

        Keyword is “used to”…before the government wised up and got the powers to seize assets, even if they were “legitimate businesses”.

        Point is, there’s no reason why a mafioso today would advertise their assets by putting their name on a building; at least the smart ones would never even put their name on the ownership papers…
