In an interview with DC Movie News, Todd Stashwick revealed that Warner Bros. has hired him and David Bar Katz to write the sequel to ‘Suicide Squad 2’. The Gavin O’Connor directed film is a follow up to the first film which starred Will Smith, Margot Robbie, and Jared Leto. Katz has been working on projects since the 90s and Stashwick is best known for his acting work on 12 Monkeys. However, Stashwick had worked on the shuttered Star Wars video game project from Visceral. Both of them are lifelong comic book fans and should bring that knowledge to bear in the script.

John Rocha and Mark Reilly sit down to discuss this news and if this pairing gets them excited for a better Suicide Squad sequel than the original film. They also explore if the experience of both of these writers bodes well for the plot of the film. Let us know what you thought about this trailer in the COMMENTS section below.

  1. Fuck all the haters I liked Suicide Squad ! Want a Better sequel and idiots to stop thinking a movie is bound to be bad

  2. "Where's my Man of Steel 2? Waah WAaah Wahh"  Mark,  Suicide Squad was a mega hit. It brought in the $$$. Man of Steel made less than what Doctor Strange did and cost more. Warner Brothers needs DC properties that will bring in the cash, so that they can justify making more of these movies. Most of the audience doesn't care about Superman.  As for diversity, Shazam, Aquaman, Birds of Prey WW2 and Batman is a pretty diverse mix.

  3. Totally ridiculous they want wb to focus on smaller characters and at the same time focus on the big characters yea….done with collider

  4. Ok… no Man of Steel sequel… no Batman movie… so let`s just get a second part to the movie with the magic stripper girl that nobody really cared about… that should keep fans happy…

    I don`t know why i even bother to have hope for the DC/WB executives…

    But, ok. I hope this writers kill it.

  5. YAY! I don;t own many films, but Suicide Squad is one I own!!
    Great News! My favs list and also fav for any and all merch and ops to costume!

  6. At this point until I see a poster advertising a DC movie at my local movie theater I refuse to believe it’s being made

  7. I'm willing to give Squad a second chance. Deadshot, Harley Quinn and El Diablo were the best things about the movie. Let's not forget they spent 6 weeks on the script but they are taking more time on this one.

  8. I didn't watch S.S 1 cuz i luv heath ledger but i might watch it if it comes during summer vacation in this year2018😀

  9. U know what's funny? These are the same people, among many others, that used to say DC/WB needs to be more forthcoming with their plans because when they say nothing, that's how the negative rumors start. And now that WB/DC have recently been announcing more things and kinda showing more of their hand, everyone is like, stop with the announcements, why don't they do this, why don't they do that, where's MOS 2, we should get this first or that first, I don't wanna see this before that, I don't understand why they're doing this first and not that etc. Sheesh, just admit u all are aboard the DC hate train. Because anything they do, draws complaint.

  10. This does excite me for another Suicide Movie, BUT…going forward I would rather have a stand alone Harley Quinn movie over a Joker movie. Especially with another one already in the works.

  11. I like this news and I think I know what they're trying to do. They're going to give Leto's joker his own movie and Robbie's Harley Quinn her own movie so that would allow O'Connor to make his own movie without worrying about how much screen time to give Harley Quinn and the joker.

  12. I'm calling it. Suicide Squad 2, The Flash and Birds of Prey will be the next DC films to get the green light. Doubt we're going to see a Batman solo film 'till maybe 2020-2021.

  13. If DC would just let the comics shine they would be alright. DC Movies go bad over time when you actually pay attention to stuff

  14. DC is straight trash through and through. The writers must fall asleep and shit themselves and then wake up and write the screenplays sitting in their own shit.

  15. Now just take Black Adam/The Rock and add him to SS2, and it just might be a worthwhile DC Movie. Current comics use Gen. Zod as a SS member.

  16. I hope they add more super-powered members to the group. Really only 2 (if you don't count Enchantress) had powers in the first film so it's tough to make it work when they go up against godlike villains.
