Rumour: Will Red Hood Be In Suicide Squad?

Have DC really hidden a secret character this long?

Last week, a number of sites picked up on the fact that a new LEGO Super Heroes set including members of the Suicide Squad - Katana, Killer Croc and Captain Boomerang specifically - also includes Red Hood.

Inevitably, that lead to lots of over-excitement. Was this an indication that the character is going to play a part in the DCCU, or in Suicide Squad specifically? There were hints of him existing in Batman V Superman (not least the "how many "How many good guys are left? How many stayed that way?" line), after all.

In a word, it's not true.

The LEGO set is not a tie-in, it's simply a continuation of the existing DC Superheroes line of sets. They do have tie-ins as part of that series, but they are clearly marked as such - take this one from The Dark Knight Rises for instance...

Or this one from Batman v Superman...

The difference with the Killer Croc set is the lack of a movie logo in the bottom corner. Instead, we get the generic Batman symbol. It's not Suicide Squad, and it's no confirmation that he's involved, so calm down.
