The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that script delays pushed production start date was the reason Gibson moved on. Furthermore, in more changes, a new treatment was recently given to Warner Bros. by Zak Penn.

For those unaware, Penn isn’t new to the Comic Book Movie genre.  The writer is quite known for scripting The Avengers, X-Men: The Last Stand and The Incredible Hulk. He will now begin working on a new script based on the new treatment.

Variety has also reported that Warner Bros. would love to begin production with Suicide Squad 2 by March 2018. Going by the story, it looks like the studio is still in the early process. Moreover, as Penn is just about to begin with the scripting, fans would have to wait for a while for further announcements.
