There’s finally some new update on Warner Bros. highly anticipated Suicide Squad 2. Actor and writer Todd Stashwick has revealed that he is co-writing Suicide Squad 2 script along with David Bar Katz and Gavin O’Connor who is also directing the film.
Stashwick broke the news during an appearance on Popcorn Talk’s DC Movie News.
“I’m excited to announce, for the first time publicly, actually, that I’m co-writing Suicide Squad 2,” the writer said.
Talking about his equation with Gavin O’Connor, Stashwick said that he shares a great rapport and relationship with the director. He has previously worked on Jane Got a Gun with Connor as the director. And now with the reunion for Suicide Squad 2, they are enjoying each other’s company. Stashwick also revealed that he personally loves the DC Comics world.
Currently, information about Suicide Squad 2 is pretty scarce. While the film was supposed to go on floors this fall, the makers decided to delay it in favor of Margot Robbie’s new Harley Quinn spinoff, Birds of Prey. So, this suggests Suicide Squad 2 is no longer shooting this year.
The film will most likely see Will Smith and Margot Robbie reprising their roles of Deadshot and Harley Quinn, respectively, along with Jared Leto who is expected to return as the iconic DC villain Joker. It recently came to light that Leto’s Joker is also getting a standalone DC Comics film.
While the film’s plot details are currently under wraps, it is rumored that the Suicide Squad 2 story will focus on the supervillain team’s mission to secure a new weapon of mass destruction which happens to Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam.
As far as Suicide Squad 2 release date is concerned, the film is expected to arrive sometime in 2020. There are rumors that Warner Bros. is setting a whole new universe dedicated to the Suicide Squad characters or so to say DC supervillains within the DCEU.
