‘Suicide Squad 2’ gets a screenwriter, also there’s gonna be a ‘Suicide Squad 2’
By Jarrod Jones. It’s time to put together a list of increasingly ridiculous sequel titles, because Suicide Squad 2 is really going to happen.
I mean, let’s face it: there’s no better way to numb the pain that comes with knowing there are people out there who think making Suicide Squad 2 is precisely what this world needs. But before we get into that, it’s newswire time.
According to an exclusive from The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. is reportedly very serious about making another Suicide Squad, and why are you laughing.
The supervillain sequel will go into production without admitted mercenary David Ayer, who has since moved on to hastily fudge his next DC Comics adaptation, Gotham City Sirens. (And it seems they’re still happy with that name.) While Warner Bros. doesn’t have Ayer around to famously fart out a woefully inadequate screenplay, they are interested in bringing on The Legend of Tarzan co-writer Adam Cozad, so feel free to crawl into the fetal position should the mood strike you.
Cozad, who wrote half of Legend of Tarzan (so he’s only partially responsible for that film being referred to as “astonishingly subpar” and “phenomenally uninteresting”), will be the first name attached to the production if negotiations are successful — though bear in mind Suicide Squad made $745 million worldwide without keeping a single person around who knew what they were doing. Its sequel could be made by a battalion of worker ants and nobody would know the difference, probably.
“The studio is focusing on nailing down a story,” The Reporter said in its report, which is just adorable.
Titles that could totally be used for the DC Comics sequel: Suicide Squad 2: Sponsored by Axe Body Spray, Suicide Squad 2: Can You Believe We Got Mel Gibson, Suicide Squad 2: Because, Suicide Squad 2: Havana Nights.
Ah, snarky newswires. It’s good to be back.
‘Suicide Squad 2: Yes, We’re Serious’ has no official release date.
