Warner Bros. Pictures currently has the film slated to hit theaters on August 6th, 2021, but that could change depending on the current health crisis. Fans will want to keep the release date on their radar going into the new year.
James Gunn wrote and directed Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” franchise, but was fired from “Guardians of the Galaxy 3” for old Tweets that resurfaced. The director and writer was eventually rehired by Marvel Studios.
The first “Suicide Squad” movie was released in 2016. The film was a massive success for the studio but got mixed reviews from both fans and critics. The DC installment went on to make over $768M worldwide.
Gunn first teased the impressive cast list for “The Suicide Squad” back in September 2019, and we haven’t heard too much about the film until today, during the DCFandome event.
