Synopsis

Plot details are unknown at this point in time.

Warner Bros. and DC first brought Suicide Squad to the big screen via a blockbuster film in 2016, which broke box office records, despite receiving mixed reviews. A sequel had always been planned, with original director David Ayer returning. However, Ayer later left Suicide Squad 2 so he could work on Gotham City Sirens, and WB hired Gavin O'Connor for Suicide Squad 2. Unfortunately, progress continued to stall due to the fast-tracking of the Birds of Prey spinoff.

In 2018, James Gunn (who had been fired from Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3) was brought on to write the script. It was revealed in January 2019 that Gunn was also in talks to direct. The intention with The Suicide Squad is for it to be a franchise relaunch with mostly new actors and characters.
