'Suicide Squad 2' Aims For A Potential 2018 Shoot Date

Despite receiving less than stellar reviews, Suicide Squad was a profitable film for Warner Bros. so much so that a sequel was more or less a given.

Bar a few directors like Mel Gibson, who have been in talks with the studio to helm the sequel, due to David Ayer - the 2016 film's director - being busy with making Gotham City Sirens, and Legend of Tarzan scribe Adam Cozad being brought into write the project word on the sequel has been relatively mum. However thanks to an interview by The Hollywood Reporter, Joel Kinnaman revealed a few things about the upcoming DC film.

"As far as I know they're writing the script and I think the plan is to shoot it sometime in 2018," Kinnaman explained. "But that could change. I think I'll definitely come back for it.

"Ultimately, I'd love for David Ayer to direct it," the actor continued. "But if he doesn't want to direct it then someone who is great with character and that's able to ground the story and maybe put these characters in a more normal situation. It would be really interesting to see these crazy characters interact with regular people as well."

It's not really know when the actual film will be released as DC/Warner Bros. have not given a solid idea in regards to release dates for not just this film but others too. Hopefully at this year's San Diego Comic Con, which will occur July 20-23, the studio will make some announcements in regards to their DC Extended Universe.
