Suicide Squad, the latest entry from DC Cinematic universe opens this week. Since this movie features several villains from Batman's "rogue gallery" and Batman makes a cameo appearance, TSA agents are no doubt stepping up their efforts to stop the latest threat to passenger safety: Batarangs.
That's right, TSA has been warning wanna-be Batmans not to try to bring their Batarangs on a plane.
The Hollywood Report has details:
Last week, someone tried to take a trio of the Batman weapon onboard a plane at San Francisco International Airport, according to the TSA.
As it has done in the past, the agency posted a picture of the batarangs to its Instagram account to once again remind travelers the item is not allowed onboard.
"Passengers are not allowed to bring anything on a plane that resembles a weapon, so anything like a boomerang or anything like that would not be permitted in the airplane cabin," Mike England, a TSA spokesman, told Heat Vision.
In a January Instagram post from Salt Lake City International Airport, the TSA said, "Batarangs are becoming more and more common and it’s important that you know they’re prohibited in carry-on bags. They can be placed in your checked baggage along with your grapple gun, bat-saw, collapsible bat-sword, and other utility belt items."

No word on whether the TSA is also banning Bat Shark Repellent.
