The Suicide Squad was previously known as Suicide Squad 2, the follow up to 2016’s Suicide Squad. James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy) is writing the script for the film, which may not be a conventional sequel. It’s one of Gunn’s first projects since he was fired by Disney for offensive tweets. It was also revealed by THR later this evening that Gunn will in fact direct The Suicide Squad, making it his first time behind the camera since 2017’s hit Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
It’s unclear if Margot Robbie will return for The Suicide Squad, since she is one of the main characters in the Birds of Prey movie. But her return is not out of the question. Presumably, Will Smith and the majority of the cast will reprise their roles for The Suicide Squad.
