To be written and possibly directed by Jimmy Gunn.

What a delicious "Fuck you" to the idiots at Disney who decided to fire him.

I'd rather have him work at Guardians of the Galaxy 3, but he can make a good Suicide Squad movie as well I guess.

Added note, Dave Bautista said to sign him up on Twitter. That'd be the icing on the fuck you cake.

Bautista as Killer Croc would be fun.

I just don't get what the fuck Warner Bros. is thinking. Making a new Suicide Squad movie that isn't a sequel but may or may not have the same cast just shows how fucking idiotic they are, flailing from one idea to the next from week to week. Gunn would do a great job with it, but I don't think they need a reboot, just a better script. He will give them a better script.

It maybe needs a reboot if they're soft-rebooting the whole damn DCCU. 

Besides, if you hire Gunn, you want him to feel no constraints about going with past actors/concepts.

The problem with the Suicide Squad is that it takes a fairly inhabited superhero universe to be a really fun concept. You can't have a team of colorful supervillains being forced to work together by The Man while they scheme against each other and their controllers if you don't have an established universe full of superheroes or secretive paramilitaries that put the bad guys in jail in the first place. The mix you need is kind of what they went for (badly) in the first film: a villain with high name recognition (Joker, Luthor, Riddler, Reverse-Flash, Brainiac, Two-Face, Black Manta, Captain Cold), some villains who have interesting backstories/concepts/personalities, the villain who has some slightly heroic or admirable qualities, and a couple of scrub red-shirt villains who are meant to get killed. Having even a sketch of a universe takes a bit of the heavy lifting that requires off the table.

Redband trailer is now out.  Cautiously optimistic but really I just want to go back to the movies.

For a DC movie, that is a pretty good trailer.

So this time I don't think they cut a grimdark dour film up for a trailer that made it seem improbably lively and funny, I think this time we're actually seeing the movie they made.

I wouldn't be opposed. He'd just have to work on a solid non-regional American accent and occasionally dip into Stringer Bell when necessary. 

Tuned in, immediately get to watch cringey Ubisoft talking head offering her deepest sympathies to the families impacted by the Orlando shooting while flanked by a man in a giraffe suit and some sort of "horrifically garish neon costumes through the ages" exhibit or something.  We need to stop this fucking planet right now and sort some shit out. -Kail

In fairness that was very much a non-fun movie that was then hastily re-edited and trailered to be a more fun 'Deadpool style' film. This one is looking much more likely to have actually been shot with that in mind so the optimists are hoping that this time it should be accurate for the tone of the movie at least.

Thats the point, you can make a great trailer even if the movie is shitty. Queen does help a lot.

Ya. think a Twilight trailer with "I want to Break free" playing.

Sometimes irony is pretty ironic.
