The Suicide Squad is an upcoming 2021 superhero comedy film based on the DC Comics team of the same name. The film is the sequel to Suicide Squad. It will be the tenth installment in the DC Extended Universe, and is scheduled for release on August 6, 2021. It will release in theaters and on HBO Max the same day, making it the second DCEU film to do so after Wonder Woman 1984. It will also be the DCEU's fourth R-rated film, after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - Ultimate Edition, Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), and Zack Snyder's Justice League.
The film is directed by James Gunn and stars Margot Robbie as Harleen Quinzel/Harley Quinn, Idris Elba as Robert DuBois/Bloodsport, John Cena as Christopher Smith/Peacemaker, Joel Kinnaman as Colonel Rick Flag, Jai Courtney as Digger Harkness/Captain Boomerang, Peter Capaldi as the Thinker, Alice Braga as Sol Soria, Pete Davidson as Dick Hertz/Blackguard, David Dastmalchian as Abner Krill/Polka-Dot Man, Michael Rooker as Brian Durlin/Savant, Taika Waititi, Nathan Fillion as T.D.K., Storm Reid as Tyla DuBois, Daniela Melchior as Ratcatcher 2, Steve Agee as Nanaue/King Shark and Warden John Economos, Sean Gunn as John Monroe/Weasel, Joaquín Cosío as Major General Mateo Suarez, Juan Diego Botto as General Presidente Silvio Luna, Julio Ruiz as Milton, Flula Borg as Javelin, Tinashe Kajese as Flo Crawley, Mayling Ng as Mongal, Jennifer Holland as Agent Emilia Harcourt, and Viola Davis as Director Amanda Waller.
A spin-off series, Peacemaker, is set to release in January 2022.
Welcome to hell — a.k.a. Belle Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out—even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. Today’s do-or-die assignment? Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin, and everyone’s favorite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese. Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and- destroy mission with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave...and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone’s laying down bets, the smart money is against them—all of them.

Prior to the film's teasers coming out, James Gunn teased repeatedly on social media that most of the characters would die in The Suicide Squad. For a long time, many fans assumed that characters such as Harley Quinn and Rick Flag were safe thanks to their popularity. However, on October 24, 2020, Gunn informed several shocked and horrified fans that he insisted he be allowed to kill any character he wanted before he came to work for DC, which the company agreed to.
On September 20, 2019, James Gunn revealed on Instagram that filming has officially already begun. On February 28, 2020, James Gunn announced on Instagram that the film has officially wrapped production.
On May 6, 2020, some news outlets began reporting that longtime James Gunn collaborator Tyler Bates had joined the project as composer, but this turned out to be incorrect. The next day, Slash Film reported that the film would actually be composed by John Murphy instead. On August 22, 2020, DC FanDome released a Roll Call trailer which confirmed the cast and characters in the film.
After periodic teases of the film's progress, James Gunn appeared at a panel for the film at the online CCXP Worlds event on December 6, 2020, and confirmed that the film is almost completely done, stating that "the final cut is locked, it's just some final tweaks that need finishing. Like, music and color-correction and stuff."
On December 31, 2020, after teasing and implying the film's rating for months, Gunn confirmed on Twitter that The Suicide Squad will indeed be rated R.
