With a largely new cast and Guardians of the Galaxy‘s James Gunn taking over from Ayer as director, The Suicide Squad (as it is officially called) is one of the most-anticipated movies of 2021.
Despite the critical bashing, Suicide Squad grossed almost $750 million worldwide and if Gunn gets it right, the sequel could well be one of the biggest movies of next year as well.
So here’s everything you need to know.

Filming has wrapped and Gunn said in April 2020 that it’s a “likely” possibility that we’ll see the first footage this year.
It could well be that this will be during DC’s huge online event FanDome, taking place on Saturday, August 22. The Suicide Squad is confirmed to be covered during the event, but there’s no confirmation on what the involvement will be.
