3. During the introduction to Dr. June Moone and Rick Flag, we see June in a bathtub filled with grass — specifically panicum capillare, aka "witchgrass." It's known to be used to stave off evil or attract lovers, both of which apply to June/Enchantress's story.

5. When the Joker is shown in his home surrounded by a bevy of weapons, there are also baby clothes, indicating that perhaps he and Harley want children. Later in the film, Harley even daydreams of a normal life with her, the Joker, and their little ones.

8. There's a subtle nod to DC's The Watchmen when Deadshot stands in front of a giant smiley face display, which resembles The Comedian's badge, minus the blood splatter.

10. The gold gun the Joker fires from a helicopter looks a lot like the gold gun Michael Peña's character finds in End of Watch, which, like Suicide Squad, is a David Ayer movie.

11. Harley Quinn is briefly seen wearing her red and black outfit made famous in Batman: The Animated Series. She's dancing with the Joker, recreating the cover from the Batman: Harley Quinn comic.
