Updated April 30, 2015 at 1:58 p.m. EST: Following up on a paparazzi story from earlier this week, eTalk has photos of a hooded person on the set of Suicide Squad Thursday morning which the filmmakers attempt to be hiding the identity of, along with photos of police cars decked out to be from Gotham City. Take a look:
While a tip of a nose and a hint of a lip certainly isn't conclusive (though it definitely could be Affleck to our amateur facial profiling eyes), the presence of a person on the Suicide Squad set with black skin-tight pants and boots that needs to be hidden from paparazzi is something. Add in the fact that Affleck arrived in Toronto earlier this week, and that the film seems to be partially set in Gotham City (as evidenced by the GCPD police cars) does mount a compelling circumstantial case that there's a role for Affleck as Bruce Wayne (or as Batman) in Suicide Squad.
Original Story: Rumors and speculation are already rampant about a possible Batman and/or Bruce Wayne in next year's Suicide Squad, and Ben Affleck showing up in a Toronto airport while that David Ayer-film shoots in the city won't help matters any.

The rumors of course stem from the role Batman's arch-nemesis the Joker (Jared Leto) plays in the film, not to mention Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn. Of course it could simply be Affleck visiting Toronto, always a hub for various television and film productions.
Affleck recently completed filming in Georgia for The Accountant, and his next film - Live by Night - which he'll direct and star in - is reportedly beginning production in July in Georgia as well.
