James Gunn Confirms No More Suicide Squad Sequels


In 2021, The Suicide Squad arrived in theaters and on HBO Max and became one of the most acclaimed DC films in recent memory. James Gunn’s take on the classic comic team quickly won fans over and launched an entire DC sub-franchise, with the hit series Peacemaker spinning out of the film’s events. A second season of Peacemaker is already in the works, as is another spinoff series from that group of characters. It seems like all roads are leading Gunn back to The Suicide Squad 2, but that might not be the case.


Speaking to The Playlist, Gunn was asked specifically about returning for a sequel to The Suicide Squad. The filmmaker revealed that, while there have been some conversations, it’s not something he’s rushing to do any time soon. For now, he’s sticking to the world of television.


“Yeah, we’ve talked about it,” Gunn explained. “But the honest truth is, I just have so many hours in a day to work on stuff. And I had such a fun time working in television that I really think that’s what I’m going to spend the next year of my life doing.”


Gunn went on to say that he’s still deciding what his next feature film is going to be, once he gets through this current run of television. It could end up being a sequel to The Suicide Squad or another DC film, but there’s a good chance it may be something completely different.


Let’s hope he doesn’t return back to his bad tweets.
