Batmobile car chase footage leaks from ‘Suicide Squad’ set

Either the Suicide Squad movie has terrible security or it’s just impossible for them to keep a lid on things, because more behind-the-scenes footage leaks out every day.

Following the leak that showed us Harley Quinn, a series of new photos and video introduce an exciting addition to the cast: Batman.

Outdoor footage shows the Batmobile chasing the Joker in a red Lamborghini, filmed on Yonge Street, Toronto. The same area previously hosted a plane crash and another chases scene for Suicide Squad earlier in the month, frustrating Toronto commuters. It’s a small price to pay for having such a big movie filming in town, according to Mayor John Tory.

We’re guessing it was impossible to completely clear a public street for filming purposes, which is why most of these clips appear to be from random passers-by rather than people working on the movie. YouTube channel Torontopia cut together some of the best shots, giving a better idea of how the chases sequence pans out.

This Instagram video even shows an aerial view from a building above where the chase was being filmed.

And here’s a close-up of the Batmobile itself.

It’s not clear whether Ben Affleck was driving the Batmobile, or if it was a stunt double. However, this scene confirms that Batfleck is definitely going to be in the Suicide Squad movie, tying it together with other films in the DC Comics/Warner Bros. franchise.
