Development of DC’s Suicide Squad 2 is picking up the pace, as one of the movie’s co-writers has discussed the status of the script.
Todd Stashwick recently divulged to Discussing Film: “We have finished our draft and I’m really proud of it,” but the writer was completely tight-lipped regarding any plot points.
Vaguely elaborating on the project, Stashwick teased: “It’s a sequel to the first film. Again, I can’t say anything else. Our intention is to tell an exciting story, deepening these characters.”
Hopefully this means that the supervillain sequel will offer more than just candy-coloured action this time around, with more gripping characters and CGI shots – possibly even a nemesis fans can enjoy?
Last year, it was confirmed that The Accountant director Gavin O’Connor has signed on to the movie, meaning original filmmaker David Ayer’s visual aesthetic could be completely removed from the finished product.
Interestingly, the most recent Batman inhabiter Ben Affleck was the male lead in The Accountant.
Suicide Squad‘s very own Joker, Jared Leto, has previously shared his feelings on the potential of reprising The Clown Prince of Crime, saying: “There are a couple of things happening in the DC world. I love the Joker. He’s a great character and really fun character to play.
“But it’s a big universe and when you play the Joker, there’s no ownership there. You have the honour of holding the baton for a little while and then passing it off. But there are other films that are in development and I’m excited to see what comes from them.”
One of those other films is Todd Phillips’ currently in-production Joker, starring Joaquin Phoenix.
