Suicide Squad 2 -DC Comics News

Ever since it was announced that David Ayer would not return to direct the sequel to the hit film, Suicide Squad, Warner Bros. has been searching for a new director.

The shortlist of directors was narrowed down to Mel Gibson, Jaume Collet-Serra and Gavin O’Connor. Once Gibson and Collet-Serra passed on the film for other projects, O’Connor became the official choice. O’Connor’s past credits include Warrior and most recently The Accountant with Ben Affleck.

Despite earning negative reviews, Suicide Squad was a major hit that brought in more than $745 million, which makes production of Suicide Squad 2 a top priority for Warner Bros. Shooting is set to begin in fall of 2018.

Hi, I'm Cameron Tevis and I've been a comic book, anime and film fan my entire life. While I like Marvel and anime my true love is DC Comics. My father, who was a fan himself, introduced me at a very young age to the amazing characters in DC (especially Hal Jordan Green Lantern). I think it's a fantastic time to be a comic book fan and I'm happy I get to write about the company that I love so much. Besides being a DC fan, I am a designer and I recently started a comic book series of my own called Event Cycle 6 published through Aporian Comics. I recently wrote and directed a short film "The Misadventures of Harley Quinn". And most importantly I am now a father to my beautiful daughter Arya Jade!
