And that’s a wrap on #TheSuicideSquad. My father died two weeks before we started filming and my dog died two weeks before the end. It was a hard, hard time in my life and yet the most fulfilling time I’ve ever had making a movie. The professionalism, talent, compassion and kindness of this cast and crew inspired me every day. Thanks to everyone involved in this film, in every stage of development, in every department – I am grateful from the bottom of my heart for you all. You are why I make movies. ❤️

The first Suicide Squad film followed a team of supervillains who were recruited by the government for a dangerous mission in exchange for reduced sentences. The cast included Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn and Jared Leto as The Joker. While the film was a box-office success, it was savaged by critics and currently holds a 27% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. James Gunn’s upcoming film is expected to deliver on the fresh take on the Suicide Squad but the director has not specified what connections it will have to the first film beyond returning cast members.
