This past Summer, Disney parted ways with James Gunn after several offensive tweets he wrote years ago resurfaced. About three months after that happened, Gunn signed on to write the next Suicide Squad movie for Warner Bros. Disney recently reinstated James Gunn as director of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, but that project won’t begin production until the filmmaker completes The Suicide Squad, which is expected to begin filming this September.

The first Suicide Squad followed a team of supervillains who were recruited by the government for a dangerous black ops mission in exchange for reduced sentences. The ensemble cast included Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller and Jared Leto as The Joker. It earned mixed reviews at best, but became a massive hit for Warner Bros. with a worldwide gross of $746.8 million.

The Suicide Squad by James Gun is one of many projects currently being developed by Warner Bros. and DC. The list also includes The BatmanThe FlashGreen Lantern CorpsBirds of PreyBlack AdamNightwingSupergirl and New Gods.

James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad is set to hit theaters on August 6, 2021.
