The Suicide Squad will be a ‘total reboot’ and won’t be rushed due to Guardians

Suicide Squad Sequel

A lot of fans were excited to hear that James Gunn is returning to direct the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3. Before the news, it was believed that his future at Marvel Studios was over, and that had Warner Bros reaching out to the director to help with a sequel to Suicide Squad. Since Gunn is currently working on the DC project, fans will have to wait longer until he can begin production for the next Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Now we have news that The Suicide Squad will be a reboot.

During the Shazam! press junket over the weekend, DC Films producer Peter Safran explained that The Suicide Squad is actually going to be a reboot. In addition, he says that there is no pressure for the team to make the film quicker.

“No, it was all handled incredibly elegantly and everybody knows on both sides that Suicide Squad is the priority today and he’ll finish that movie and then everybody knows that his next film will be Guardians,” Safran tells Joblo. “It’s the best of all possible both worlds, I think, for fans and for James Gunn himself.”

Safran then corrected the reporter by saying that they’re not calling it Suicide Squad 2.

“First of all, we don’t call it Suicide Squad 2 ‘cause it’s a total reboot, so it’s The Suicide Squad and I think people should be extremely excited about it,” Safran replied. “It’s everything you would hope from a James Gunn script and I think that says a lot and that promises a lot and I know that we will deliver a lot.”

The producer also talks about why James Gunn directing both The Suicide Squad and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 is a good thing for comic book movie fans.

“And you know what I love about James directing for both Marvel and DC is he has always espoused the view that that which unites comic book and superhero lovers is much greater than that which divides us,” he added. “Because, there’s always been this Marvel/DC rivalry, which he has said, and I agree, is absurd. There’s room for everybody and certainly that which unites us all is far greater than that which divides us, so hopefully they’ll see that you can be both a Marvel and a DC fan and the world won’t spin off its axis.”

It’s reported that Idris Elba (Thor: Ragnarok) will be playing Deadshot in The Suicide Squad. The movie is expected to be released on August 6, 2021.
