James Gunn Finishes Filming ‘The Suicide Squad’

We’re getting closer to seeing the wild cast of The Suicide Squad in action. Though the movie is still more than a year away from theaters, writer-director James Gunn announced via Instagram that filming has wrapped.

Gunn’s caption reads as follows:

“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.”

Gunn was lured to Warner Bros after his dismissal (since reversed) from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3. His film will mark the third big screen appearance for Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, following 2016’s Suicide Squad and Birds of Prey.

Though Robbie is easily identifiable front and center (behind the big clapboard), you’ll have to head over to Instagram if you want to try squinting to see everyone else in the photo. The Suicide Squad is currently scheduled for an August 2021 release.

From alternating Batman & Green Lantern as childhood Halloween costumes, to getting punched in my adolescent heart by Love & Rockets, to playing convention sidekick to the legendary Len Wein, the comics medium and characters feel like a part of my DNA.
