In September 2017, a sequel to Suicide Squad was reported to be in development, with Gavin O'Connor writing the script, based on a previous draft by Zak Penn.[25]

In October 2018, Warner Bros confirmed that James Gunn will produce the latest draft of the script for the film.[2]

On January 30, 2019, Warner Bros. announced that the film will be named The Suicide Squad, and set a release date of August 6, 2021, with James Gunn also directing.[1]


On September 20, 2019, James Gunn revealed on Instagram that filming has officially already begun.[26][27] On February 28, 2020, James Gunn announced on Instagram that the film has officially wrapped production.[28]


On May 6, 2020, some news outlets began reporting that longtime James Gunn collaborator Tyler Bates had joined the project as composer,[29] but this turned out to be incorrect. The next day, Slash Film reported that the film would actually be composed by John Murphy instead.[3] On August 22, 2020, DC FanDome released a Roll Call trailer which confirmed the cast and characters in the film.[5]
