Richard Centrone, who was Ben Affleck's Batman stunt double, recently dished some interesting stories from the filming of "Suicide Squad." He talked about the mouth-to-mouth scene with Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn that he did not get to do and his interesting encounter with Jared Leto's Joker.
According to DC Comics News, David Ayer hired Centrone to remain as Affleck's Batman stunt double in "Suicide Squad." The director wanted to keep the character's movement and fighting style consistent with "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." Centrone agreed and he definitely has a lot of stories to tell about his involvement in the film.
Centrone talked about his stunt work on the two DC films in a podcast interview with "BatCast" host Andy DiGenova. According to Batman-News, he revealed that in "Suicide Squad," he was the one who carried Robbie's unconscious Harley Quinn to the Batmobile. Viewers may remember this scene after Harley and Joker crashed into the sea, Batman leaped down to save her. Of course, he had to knock her out first so he can carry her out to safety (see video below).
Centrone revealed that he carried Robbie's Harley Quinn but it was Affleck who had to give the actress mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, which ended with Harley kissing Batman. That scene became a topic of jokes between Centrone and Affleck during filming.
Likewise, Centrone revealed that he had an awkward encounter with Leto's Joker in "Suicide Squad." Affleck's Batman stunt double had trouble at first distinguishing whether the actor was being serious or not, since he was in character on-and-off camera. There was a scene where Centrone had to saw open the top of the Batmobile with the Joker inside but the film had to take a quick break. Leto remained in the car and made weird sounds at Centrone-he even told him with a laugh that he is a "cute one." Centrone said he smiled in response at first but immediately gave Leto a sneer when he realized the actor stayed in character even during the break.© 2018 Mstars News, All rights reserved.
