THR: James Gunn in Talks to Direct 'Suicide Squad' Sequel

also THR: The pic has the title of The Suicide Squad and is not being labeled a direct sequel but as a relaunch. The 2016 original movie featured the characters Deadshot, Harley Quinn, the Joker, Captain Boomerang and Killer Croc, who are forced into the service of the government in exchange for lighter prison sentences.

Sources say that Gunn’s focus is to take the franchise in a new direction with a mostly all-new cast of characters and actors.

What the hell does that even mean? Is this like a do-over or just different bad guys?

'Cause if Suicide Squad is getting a do-over and Justice League isn't, SO HELP ME BATFLECK--

I'm sorry... I'm sorry, please bear with me... I'm having a hard time here... they are calling it "The Suicide Squad" and rebooting the whole thing? They are slapping a "the" at the front in the hopes of over-writing the original movie? Fuuuuuuuuuuuucccckkkkkkkk...

What in sweet hell are WB doing? Do they have any idea? We have several Joker movies in the works, one with Joaquin Phoenix and several with Jared Leto even though he hasn't been asked to be in them. They seem to have finally settled on a Harley movie that is actually a Birds Of Prey movie. Nobody in the living fuck knows what is happening with any Batman movie. And now they hire a guy fired by Marvel probably purely as a grab for Marvel-esque success and give him free reign to ignore everything that has come before him? Writing for Marvel is nothing like writing for DC. If his "new direction" is to Marvel-ise the DCEU, he will tank the DCEU.

I feel sooooooooooo bad for the actors here. No one in SS did anything other than a great job with what they had, yet it seems their characters and stories have been binned for the mistakes of WB executives. The only thing that has ever needed to happen to Make the DCEU Great Again was for WB to take a giant step back and stop messing with production processes. UUUUGGGGHHHHH.
