The Suicide Squad is hitting it out of the park with its premiere. DC’s most loved movie is out there in the theatres and streaming on HBO, giving fans a taste of some R-rated, gory, and unexpectedly emotional medley.
After seeing a huge success it is not unexpected that the talks for the third movie in the Suicide Squad franchise are all up in the air. People are hoping to see more of their supervillains on screen and you cannot blame them. But this time they’re asking for a face-off, Justice League, our charismatic and powerful Superheroes against the underdog oddballs from The Suicide Squad.
When James Gunn was asked about this potential crossover here is what he had to say to the CNA lifestyle:
“I’d have to think about that. I haven’t put any thought into a Suicide Squad vs. Justice League movie, but it’s not a bad idea,”
The Suicide Squad came with its flavors, which were more suited to him. He wanted to show the stories of those people who would have never got the limelight and we feel James Gunn has done justice to that thought commendably. Here is what he told Entertainment Weekly:
“we’re creating a type of franchise spectacle film that’s outside the bounds, outside the lines of where people are normally colouring.”
“People are like, ‘Why didn’t you do Superman or Justice League?’ I found this to be the most creatively fulfilling story. I know someone’s gonna do a Superman movie again. I don’t know that Polka-Dot Man’s gonna get his story told if I don’t tell it.”
James Gunn who started from horror movies at Troma Entertainment has risen in ranks to create some marvelous movies like The Guardian of the Galaxy and The Suicide Squad and it would not be surprising if he is asked to direct a coining moment in history with Justice League Vs The Suicide Squad.
While the idea approaches a very interesting premise, there are still a lot of other movies yet to come before this point can be reached. Justice League’s Flash (Ezra Miller) and Batman (Ben Affleck) have plans to work together again in The Flash, Wonder Woman and Aquaman both are gearing up for their own separate sequels according to Warner Bros, and Superman does not have any contracts as of yet, especially anything concerning a second Justice League.
Charles Roven, producer on both The Suicide Squad and Justice League also told Hollywood reporter that a Justice League 2 is “a number of years away.”
But don’t worry you would get to see James Gunn back in action with Peacemaker, which is all set to premiere on HBO max, in January.
Until then bask away in the fun-loving, hilarious, and grotesque The Suicide Squad starring some of the most exceptional people including, Viola Davis, Sylvester Stallone, Idris Elba, Margot Robbie, John Cena, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, Peter Capaldi, Daniela Melchior, and David Dastmalchian.
The Suicide Squad is now playing on HBO Max and your nearest theatre don’t miss out on it.
