Suicide Squad 2 group

Last week, the best news of the year came with word that Disney and Marvel Studios had reversed their decision to remove James Gunn as the director of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. The filmmaker will return to the franchise that he originated in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but before that, James Gunn will have to make good on his deal to enter the DC Extended Universe with The Suicide Squad.

The Suicide Squad has been referred to as the sequel to the 2016 movie Suicide Squad, but according to producer Peter Safran, we shouldn’t be thinking of this movie as Suicide Squad 2 at all. While we’ve heard rumblings that this will be a soft reboot of the franchise that brings some bad people together to do some good, Safran calls The Suicide Squad a “total reboot.” Read More »

suicide squad 2 plot

When Will Smith left James Gunn‘s Suicide Squad sequel, there was some question of whether or not a new actor would replace him, or if Smith’s character Deadshot would be cut. The answer came quickly, when Idris Elba took over the part. Now, we might know why. Early Suicide Squad 2 plot details reveal that Deadshot is a central figure in Gunn’s script, and that the story is drawing heavily from a classic 1980s comic run from Jon Ostrander and Kim Yale.

Suicide Squad 2 Cast Idris Elba

Deadshot will appear in Suicide Squad 2 after all – in the form of Idris Elba. Will Smith, who played Deadshot in the first Suicide Squad, recently departed the upcoming sequel due to scheduling issues, which lead us to question if the character was going to show up at all. Now we have our answer. Idris Elba will take Smith’s place in the Suicide Squad 2 cast. This makes Elba the first official bit of casting we have for the follow-up, as it’s still unclear if Margot Robbie, or any other actor from Suicide Squad, will be back for a second round.

Looks like someone else is going to have to say the titular line in Suicide Squad 2. Will Smith, who played Floyd Lawton aka Deadshot in the 2016 anti-hero film, is no longer part of the Suicide Squad 2 cast. Smith’s departure has been chalked up to scheduling conflicts. James Gunn is on board to write and direct the follow-up, which is rumored to be both a sequel and a reboot that will hopefully make us all forget about the terrible first movie.

It seemed like Margot Robbie‘s Harley Quinn had flown the nest. After becoming the breakout star of 2016’s Suicide Squad, Robbie set a spin-off for the beloved Batman rogue in the upcoming “girl gang” film Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn).

Harley Quinn’s future looked bright as Warner Bros. went through upheaval after upheaval, and the fate of the Suicide Squad sequel and the multiple Jared Leto Joker spin-offs were put into question. But now, following the studio’s tapping of James Gunn to helm Suicide Squad 2, it seems that Robbie may return to her first squad once again.

Yesterday, the superhero movie fan community was surprised to learn that Guardians of the Galaxy writer/director James Gunn might be jumping ship from Marvel to DC to write and potentially direct Suicide Squad 2. Guardians actor Dave Bautista is excited about Warner Bros. and DC’s decision, jokingly (maybe?) suggesting that he wants to be involved in the anti-hero sequel.

But there’s someone else who also approves of Gunn as the person who could tell the next chapter of the Suicide Squad’s story: David Ayer, the man who directed the first film back in 2016.
