Originally thought to be a sequel to David Ayer’s 2016 film, it’s been confirmed that Gunn plans to offer a new, fresh take on Suicide Squad. In an interview with JoBlo, producer Pete Safran set the record straight on the upcoming film. When asked how excited fans should be for the upcoming “Suicide Squad 2,” Safran quickly corrected the title of the film. he said:

[row]”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. 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.”[/row]

This casting line-up certainly delivers! We can’t wait to see more details from the film unfold in the coming months.
