Warner Bros. and DC Comics is gearing up for production for production on The Suicide Squad, which will assemble its cast in Atlanta next week. The James Gunn-directed movie is set to begin production this month and is scheduled to shoot in Georgia for three months before heading to Panama for about a month, ComicBook.com reported earlier on Friday.
If The Suicide Squad is to follow the trend of recent DC Comics movies, it will tell an isolated story without relying on connections to other heroes and villains scattered across the big screen universe. "I think that is the goal," Safran said in an earlier interview. "It is giving heroes their time to shine and not feeling like you have to shoehorn in some universal connection amongst them all. The studio's been incredibly supportive and DC's been supportive about saying, 'Take the time that you need to introduce these characters in the right way and tell the stories that audiences want to see with these characters.'"
Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn will be at the helm of The Suicide Squad before he heads back to Marvel for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
The Suicide Squad is set for release on August 6, 2021.
