Director James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy) was already writing the script for Suicide Squad 2, but now it looks like he’s getting back into the director’s chair.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gunn will write and direct the Suicide Squad sequel. After the financial success and the mixed critical reception of the first film, Warner Bros. decided to change things up. The film will feature a mostly new team, with Will Smith (Deadshot), Viola Davis (Amanda Waller), and Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn) likely returning. It will reportedly have Gunn’s fingerprints all over it. So, if you were a fan of his Marvel films, this is definitely something you should be excited to see.
Suicide Squad 2 is slated for an August 6th, 2021 release date. Zack and Deborah Snyder will serve as executive producers. For more on Suicide Squad and everything in the world of DC, stay tuned.
