While there are many eyes on the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, there seem to be just as many on its follow-up, Suicide Squad. Maybe because Suicide Squad will be DC’s first real test in their competition with Marvel. Selling a movie starring the two giants of the company is easy, but selling a movie that’s essentially the company’s Guardians of the Galaxy (a film about a team of characters most people have never heard of) is a much harder task.

RT! #suicidesquad #skwad HUGE #RUMOR #SPOILER #WARNING Sources tell me in the lower levels of the prison where #AMANDAWALLER keeps all the SUPER POWERED META HUMANS, she has inside a trophy case – #AQUAMAN's TRIDENT as seen in the recently released still with #JasonMomoa! How did she come into the trident's possession? What happened to Aquaman in #BatmanvSupermanDawnofJustice? The plot certainly thickens! Very cool nonetheless. Love me a good mystery. #trident #DC #dccu #dccomics #dc movie #SCOOP #SUPERPOWEREDMETAHUMANS #BatmanvsSuperman
If the trident is indeed in the trophy case, it does have to make you wonder how it got there. If you’ll recall, S.H.I.E.L.D. obtained a lot of the mystical items it had in its possession by way of the massive battle at the end of The Avengers. Does this mean there’s an epic, city-destroying battle in Batman v Superman? We know there’s a brawl, but is it on the scale that would cause Aquaman to lose track of his trident?
