The Suicide Squad, a sequel to 2016’s Suicide Squad, seems to be getting more priority from Warner Bros. than we expected. Although the first movie appeared to have not gotten the momentum that most of us expected, the studio is enlisting Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn to create the script and direct the movie.
With Gunn on board, we can expect something different from the upcoming movie. Additionally, with the title The Suicide Squad, it seems that the studio is trying to distance the upcoming movie from the old one.
We hope that Gunn does more than just duplicate the success of Guardians of the Galaxy.
Regarding the cast, there are no confirmations yet but there are rumors that point to featuring of a new group of villains. In the past, it was expected that characters like Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Joker (Jared Leto), and Deadshot (Will Smith) would return on the new movie. However, since the studio appears to be trying to move away from the first movie and with Robbie’s Harley Quinn taking a more central role in Birds of Prey, there is a possibility that they might not be back.
Still, with Harley Quinn as one of the most recognizable characters in the movie, it is still possible that she might be considered to appear in the movie.
The Suicide Squad is expected to hit movie theaters on August 6, 2021.
