Warning: Spoilers ahead for
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League
A Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League Easter egg could tease the return of Batman, or possibly Calendar Man. The open-world Metropolis of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is full of details, but many fans may have overlooked this complicated puzzle.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League continued the Arkhamverse storyline from the Rocksteady Batman games. While the story focuses on a squad of anti-heroes, it includes the Arkham Batman that gamers controlled across multiple games. On top of its main narrative and collectibles that provide lore, story lovers can uncover some smaller details in the open world. Among the Easter eggs spotted by Suicide Squad fans are nods to DC characters like Peacemaker, Deathstroke, and Black Manta. However, one Metropolis Easter Egg feels especially meaningful since it may hint at the return of Batman or the often-forgotten Calendar Man.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League Details Changes Coming in Next Update
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League dev applauds players for ‘breaking the game’ while detailing a new update meant to deal with their achievement.
YouTuber Batman Arkham Videos recently shared a video highlighting one of the lesser-known Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League Easter eggs. According to the YouTuber, the calendars featured in several locations around Suicide Squad‘s Metropolis have dates that spell out three short words. These are pieced together from calendars that highlight specific dates; January 8, February 5, March 23, April 9, May 12, June 12, July 18, Aug 5, September 20, October 21, November 18, and December 14. The December calendar that can be found in Centennial Park notably has a Batman symbol rather than a red circle, which may indicate that the Dark Knight will be the character who the hidden message is alluding to.
What Do the Calendar Dates Spell Out?
When the calendar dates are translated into letters in the monthly order, they spell out “he will return.” Considering how subtle this secret is, most DC fans probably didn’t notice this hidden detail, but the sleuthing of this YouTuber may suggest that Rocksteady’s Suicide Squad is bringing back characters in its future seasons – an idea that leaks have supported. Though the last day being marked by the Batman icon suggests he will be coming back from death, the YouTuber also pointed out that this teased return could be for Calendar Man instead, a villain that’s usually overlooked who was introduced in a 1950s Detective Comics. Since he’s appeared in the Arkham games, and this Easter egg involves calendars, it is possible.
With Rocksteady intending to add more content to its live service game over the next year, this mysterious character could be added as part of the story content in the next four seasons. Whether Batman is revived following his encounter with Task Force X, or it is revealed that the version fans thought was a clone or an Earth-2 variant, remains to be seen.
