Report: Suicide Squad Sequel Already Planned at Warner Bros.


Buried in a story at TheWrap about the next collaboration between actor Will Smith and director David Ayer is the news that Warner Bros. is already planning for a Suicide Squad sequel.

The site reports that the new Will Smith/Joel Edgerton police thriller Bright will be directed by Ayer, and that both he and Smith are slipping the movie into their schedules before a planned 2017 shoot for a sequel to August's DC supervillain film Suicide Squad.

Bright comes from a script by Max Landis, who's currently writing DC Comics's Superman: American Alien miniseries. His most recent feature film outing, American Ultra, starred Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice villain Jesse Eisenberg.

Ayer is shopping the project around, although it seems likely that it will land at Warner Bros., who have strong relationships with Ayer and Smith, and could maintain the Suicide Squad schedule better if two of their key players are working with the studio in between installments.

Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

    I'd drop Will from the sequel, because I'm personally sick of him. Instead I'd make the sequel all new cast members, other than Waller. This way the movie is more interesting with a revolving list of characters. For the sequel I say go bigger and bring in King Shark. I'm not sure if he is in the movie or not, but if he isn't I'd want Deathstroke. Other villains I'd like to see are the real Dr. Light, Count Vertigo, Bronze Tiger, Black Manta and Solomon Grundy. As for the heroes joining the team Vixen and Nightshade. All of these characters have been on the team in one time or another.

  1. Hope they change some of the lineup. I want to see Killer Frost, King Shark, and Deathstroke. They could even use Black Adam and Black Manta if it takes place after Aquaman and Shazam.

    Is it too much to ask for Poison Ivy? Lol. Or atleast more females. Male to female ratio is always drastically uneven in superhero movies.
