Gavin O’Connor is on board to write the sequel to “Suicide Squad,” and is also in talks to direct the film that stars Will Smith, Margot Robbie, and Jared Leto.
The movie is a top priority at Warner Bros. and looks to be one of the two DC properties (the other being New Line’s “Shazam!”) to begin production next year. Given the ensemble’s busy schedule, the shoot wasn’t expected to start until fall of 2018. So while there’s still time, the studio is eager to get someone on board to pen a script.
I’ll be totally honest, I have no idea who Gavin O’Connor is but based off of the first Suicide Squad movie and the fact that Warner Bros has learned absolutely no lessons from their mistakes and plan on rushing out a sequel next year when it doesn’t even have a script yet, Suicide Squad 2 is going to be the opposite of good.
DC and Warner Bros suuuuck at this. They are rushing Shazam and Suicide Squad 2 into production, two movies that NO ONE is asking for yet there is no word or mention of Green Lantern or the Man of Steel sequel even though it feels like the first Man of Steel came out like, 20 years ago now.
Nope, we have to rush Shazam even though there isn’t even an actor on board to play the titular character. Suicide Squad 2 needs to happen even though the first movie was the worst thing ever and made no sense. Why would you gather this particular team of villains to fight an all-powerful magical being? Harley Quinn literally just carries a bat. Captain Boomerang throws fucking boomerangs. How are they defeating witches and wizards?
No idea who Gavin O’Connor is but I can’t wait to shit all over his movie next year. Stay tuned.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you think Suicide Squad 2 will be surprisingly good. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
