MCU veteran James Gunn is currently set to write and direct Warner Bros. and DC films Suicide Squad movie. but fans shouldn’t mistake it to be a sequel to the 2017 Suicide Squad directed by David Ayer as Gunn himself has confirmed it won’t be a second installment titled part 2.
The director of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise took to social media after coming across a few fake extras casting notice images for the Suicide Squad movie. Gunn clarified in a new tweet that the upcoming movie won’t be titled ‘Suicide Squad 2’ but also refrained from unveiling the official title as well.
“Not only is the title “Suicide Squad 2” not the title of our film, if there is EVER an extras casting notice for ANY film of mine (& most large films) that lists a real title or any actors in the film, it is almost certainly a FAKE: a scam meant to take your money. Be careful!,” You can find the tweet below.
It must be noted that Warner Bros. is yet to officially announce the cast for Suicide Squad. But the movie is expected to start principal photography in September.
Idris Elba was initially set to play as Deadshot, the character Will Smith played in the 2017 Suicide Squad. But later on, it was reported that Elba would play a different character.
The movie was reported to be a total reboot but it was then revealed that Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, and Jai Courtney would be reprising their roles. Even Gunn just had a vague answer to offer when asked if the movie was a reboot or a sequel or something in the middle.
“You know, these terms are all so narrow. There’s so many terms. It is what it is. You’ll see in two years, when it comes out,” said Gunn.
The Suicide Squad is currently set to release on August 6th, 2021.
Not only is the title “Suicide Squad 2” not the title of our film, if there is EVER an extras casting notice for ANY film of mine (& most large films) that lists a real title or any actors in the film, it is almost certainly a FAKE: a scam meant to take your money.
